The TB257FR is the latest addition to the Takeuchi FR line up and features the same Side-to-Side (STS) boom configuration and minimal swing radius as the TB280FR. Powering the TB257FR is the Kubota V2403-CR-TE5B turbocharged engine that is U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final compliant and provides 32% more engine output than it’s predecessor, the TB153FR. Hydraulic performance is also improved with a 19% increase in traction force as well as hydraulic flow and main system pressure. The unique Side-to-Side (STS) boom configuration is what sets the TB257FR apart from is competition. The STS boom configuration and minimal tail swing allows for unmatched visibility and maneuverability when working in confined spaces. This configuration allows the upper structure to be full rotated nearly within the width of the tracks when the boom is stowed in the full upright position.
