Atlanta, GA: Takeuchi-US, an innovative global leader in compact equipment, has launched the TB2150 hydraulic excavator to the market. Completely redesigned from the ground up, the TB2150 replaces the Takeuchi TB1140 SERIES 2 excavator.
The TB2150 is the largest, most capable excavator in the Takeuchi lineup. At 34,480 pounds, the machine delivers greater functionality, performance, comfort, and serviceability over the previous TB1140 SERIES 2 model.
The TB2150 offers a maximum digging depth of 18 ft. 0 in., maximum dump height of 20 ft. 4.9 in., maximum reach of 28 ft. 8.9 in. and maximum bucket breakout force of 22,190 pounds.
Powered by a Deutz TCD 3.6 liter turbocharged diesel engine that is US EPA Final Tier 4 emission compliant, the TB2150 produces 114 horsepower (HP), a 10 percent increase over the previous version, and delivers 339 ft-lbs of torque, a 19 percent increase. The engine utilizes a DOC+SCR diesel exhaust after-treatment system that requires the use of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).
The operator’s station has been completely revamped with an automotive styled interior that is operator friendly. A spacious cabin features a heated deluxe high back air suspension seat, and the new color multi-information display keeps the operator informed of machine performance. In addition, the excavator includes boom and arm holding valves, an overload alarm, and a new rear view camera to view objects behind the machine on the color monitor.
Serviceability and uptime have been improved by simplifying access to key maintenance items. This includes a nearly 5 percent increase in fuel tank capacity and the engine does not have a DPF to maintain. In addition, the machine comes standard with Takeuchi’s new telematics system, Takeuchi Fleet Management.
“The new TB2150 represents Takeuchi’s commitment to continuous product improvement so we can provide the latest in technology and performance to our customers,” said David Caldwell, national product manager at Takeuchi-US. “The TB2150 is more capable, comfortable and spacious than its predecessor, and our customers will find it to be an exceptional value and upgrade.”
