TAKEUCHI EXPANDS ITS TB300 SERIES WITH THE NEW TB350R
The new TB350R is the first short tail swing excavator in its five-ton class.
Takeuchi has expanded its TB300 Series excavator product line with the new TB350R short tail swing compact excavator, the first short tail swing model in the manufacturer’s five-ton class. The TB350R has a rear swing overhang of just 2.95”, allowing operators to focus more on their work and worry less about rear-swing impacts.
The TB350R weighs 10,980 lb. in canopy configuration and 11,235 lb. when equipped with a cab. It is powered by a Kubota V2607-CR-E5B diesel engine that is U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final compliant and delivers 41.7 net hp (ISO 9249/SAE1349) and more than 130.2 ft-lb of torque. A four-pump hydraulic system delivers smooth, harmonized control of the work equipment. The TB350R provides a bucket breakout force of 10,431 lb., a traction force of 12,320 lb., and a maximum dig depth of 11’ 8.8”.
To improve the operator’s experience, Takeuchi completely redesigned the TB350R’s interior. The excavator’s canopy configuration includes a 4.3” high-definition, multifunction colour monitor, while the cab model has an easy-to-view, 7” touchscreen, multifunction colour monitor with integrated air conditioner and radio functions. For enhanced operator comfort, the excavators feature a deluxe, high-back, six-way-adjustable suspension seat, adjustable armrests, low-effort pilot controls, a large flat floor area and integrated footrests. An intuitive jog dial on the cab model provides operators with easy navigation and control of the multifunction monitor and other machine functions. Simple, one-touch control switches activate machine functions such as work lights, wiper, washer, ECO mode, 1st auxiliary circuit detent and lift overload alarm.
Takeuchi’s Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard on the TB350R. TFM reduces downtime and controls costs by providing owner/operators with machine health and condition, run time (hours) and machine location, as well as remote diagnostics, scheduled maintenance reminders and customizable alert settings. TFM also gives owners the ability to geofence their machines, helping them protect and secure their investments. TFM access is free during the two-year standard warranty period. Additional coverage is included free with extended warranty plans, and owners can also purchase it separately.
