Takeuchi-US’s new TB2150 hydraulic excavator replaces the TB1140 SERIES 2 excavator. At 34,480 lbs., the unit offers a maximum digging depth of 18 feet; maximum dump height of 20 feet, 4.9 inches; maximum reach of 28 feet, 8.9 inches; and maximum bucket breakout force of 22,190 lbs.

Powered by a Deutz TCD 3.6L turbocharged diesel engine that is U.S. EPA Final Tier 4 emission compliant, the TB2150 produces 114 hp, a 10% increase over the previous version. It also delivers 339 lb.-ft. of torque, a 19% increase. The engine utilizes a diesel oxidation catalyst and selective catalytic reduction after-treatment system that requires the use of diesel exhaust fluid.

The operator’s station has been completely revamped with an automotive-style interior. A spacious cabin features a heated 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. This includes a nearly 5% increase in fuel tank capacity, and the engine does not have a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to maintain. In addition, the machine comes standard with Takeuchi’s new telematics system, Takeuchi Fleet Management.
