TAKEUCHI INTRODUCES NEW TB395W WHEELED EXCAVATOR
The TB395W provides owner/operators with a highly versatile option that combines powerful excavating performance with on-road capabilities, making it ideal for shorter-term, faster-paced projects.
Takeuchi has added a wheeled model, the TB395W, to its growing excavator product line.
The TB395W features two four-wheel steering modes — 4WS (all-wheel steering) and 4WSC (crab steering). A wide range, longer stick arm allows for greater clearance between the bucket and dozer blade due to the arm mount position. As a result, operators of the TB395W can pull the bucket all the way to the dozer blade, which is ideal when working in narrow spaces or moving an obstacle out of the way. Auto Cruise enables operators to set and adjust their travel speeds by pressing a button or operating a toggle switch (on an optional, multi-function grip). Auto Cruise is ideal for attachments that require a consistent, repeatable travel speed, such as a mulcher, mower or trencher.
Takeuchi outfitted the TB395W with a newly redesigned interior to improve the operator experience. The cab features an easy-to-read 8” touchscreen and multifunction colour monitor with integrated air conditioning and DAB radio functions. A deluxe, high-back, air-ride suspension seat, adjustable armrests, low-effort pilot controls, a large flat floor area and integrated footrests help operators remain comfortable and productive throughout the workday. Using the machine’s intuitive jog dial, operators can easily navigate and control the TB395W’s monitor, including its HVAC and DAB radio functions. Simple, one-touch control switches operate other machine functions, such as work lights, Standard and ECO working modes, Service Port 1 detent, low- and high-speed gearbox, swing boom/second boom select, differential lock, manual regen/regen inhibit and lift overload alarm.
The TB395W excavator weighs 10,625 kg (23,425 lbs.) when equipped with outriggers and a blade. It’s powered by an EU-Stage V-compliant diesel engine delivering 85 kW (113.9 HP) at 2,200 rpm and up to 460 Nm (339 ft-lbs.) of torque. A closed-loop, the load-sensing hydraulic system delivers smooth control of the work equipment and a wide range of hydraulic attachments. The TB395W’s 4,095 mm (13.4 ft) digging depth and 8,260 mm (27 ft) cutting height make it particularly useful on construction sites. The excavator offers a maximum bucket breakout force of 58.9 kN (13,240 lbs.), a maximum arm digging force of 39.7 kN (8,925 lbs.) and a traction force of 57.8 kN (12,995 lbs.) Multiple optional service ports are available on the TB395W, with standard Service Port 1 (SP1) and Service Port 2 (SP2) plumbed to mid-arm with shutoff valves. SP1 delivers a flow rate of up to 120 L/min and a pressure rating of 21.0 MPa, while SP2 has a flow rate of up to 55 L/min and a pressure rating of 21.0 MPa.
Because proper maintenance and service work is imperative for long machine life, Takeuchi designed the TB395W with a wide-opening rear engine service door and an overhead-opening right-side cover. Both the service door and right-side cover are constructed of durable steel to discourage vandalism and theft.
Takeuchi’s Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard on the TB395W in the EU. 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.
