The first 100 units of the TB20e, Takeuchi’s new electric compact excavator, will soon be available at select United Rentals locations in North America. The TB20e is the first Takeuchi designed-and-built, battery-powered machine in what will be a full line of electric products.

Similar in performance to Takeuchi’s diesel-powered TB216 compact excavator, the TB20e is 100% battery-powered with zero exhaust emissions and reduced noise/vibration levels.

When fully charged, the TB20e offers a continuous working time ranging from four to eight hours, depending on the application and environment. The excavator has an operating weight of 4,255 lbs., a bucket capacity of 1.34 cubic feet, and a primary auxiliary flow of 9.0 gpm. Maximum reach is 13 feet, 4 inches and maximum digging depth is 7 feet, 10.1 inches. The TB20e also features a spacious operator’s station with a new high-definition, multi-informational color display.
