Takeuchi brings new mini excavator TB257FR to US

Takeuchi has launched the TB257FR compact hydraulic excavator with the company’s patented side-to-side (STS) offset boom combined with a tight tail swing that allows it to fully rotate with very little overhang.

The newest mini excavator in the FR Series, which features a full-rotation (FR) design, this new machine replaces the TB153FR. Available in many areas of the world already, the TB257FR is being officially introduced to the US on 21 September.

The side-to-side boom feature enables the TB257FR to dig offset to the right or left without needing to reposition the machine, and it allows more of the counterweight to remain in line with the center of the machine for greater stability. 

Takeuchi claims the boom’s ability to be stowed over center allows the TB257FR to perform a full rotation nearly within the width of the track, making it suitable for work on a variety of confined job sites including road and bridge work, city streets, and in between buildings.

Powering the TB257FR is a turbocharged diesel engine delivering a rated output of 39.0 kW and 195.6 Nm of maximum torque for traction force of 66.9 kN. A DOC and DPF exhaust aftertreatment system ensures compliance EU Stage V / US Tier 4 emissions standards.

The TB257FR features an operating weight of 5,840 kg, a dig depth of 3,895 mm, maximum reach of 6,215 mm, and bucket breakout force of 36.6 kN.

An available cab provides an automotive-styled interior equipped with optional air conditioner, defrost, windshield wiper and washer, skylight with sunshade, AM/FM/MP3 Bluetooth radio, and a high back suspension seat with head rest.
