The Takeuchi TB235-2 compact excavator makes working on a variety of jobsites efficient and convenient thanks to a design that fits raw power into a transportable package.

The 3,465-kg excavator boasts an 18.2 kW 3TNV88F Tier 4 Final engine with just a 1,580 mm undercarriage width and 1,330 mm tail-swing radius, making it a versatile option on jobs with limited space. The TB235-2 also lends itself well to utility, landscaping and construction contractors that need to complete projects at multiple sites in a day as the compact excavator is easily moved with a transport height of 2,510 mm and length of 4,900 mm.

The TB235-2 provides an over-front lifting capability of 1,398 kg at 2,743 mm and 943 kg at 3,657 mm. Its over-side lifting capabilities are 767 kg at 2,743 mm and 514 kg at 3,657 mm.
The all-steel construction of the compact excavator promotes a long, productive life. It also features a wrap-around counterweight to protect key engine and hydraulic components in addition to limiting its tail-swing radius and provide excellent vision for the operator to the work area.

Though Grade Control options are available throughout our equipment offering, the TB235-2 can be easily outfitted with a wireless 2D control system providing depth, slope or distance accuracy without getting out of the cab.

Work in comfort

The cab was designed to maximize comfort and efficiency for operators. With controls at their fingertips, as well as a high-back suspension seat and adjustable arm rests, operators can work effectively and comfortably.

A multi-informational LCD color display keeps operators up to date on machine diagnostics. They can also adjust hydraulic flow at the touch of the screen. Two-way auxiliary hydraulics are plumbed to the arm for greater attachment versatility.

Users can also select from one of three operating modes – Power, ECO and High Altitude – to best match engine performance to the application performed. Additionally, the TB235-2 has an electronic throttle, which makes it easy to set to the operator’s desired position.

Ease of maintenance was also enhanced with the TB235-2. A service-access hood replaces the need for a tilt-up cabin, making control valves, hydraulic lines, hydraulic tanks and vital components easily reachable.
