A powerful combination of performance and versatility make Takeuchi’s TB240 one of its most popular conventional tail swing excavators. This compact machine offers steel construction and lockable service-access panels, an automotive-style interior and a smooth and robust hydraulic system.

The newly updated design of the TB240 incorporates a rounded body for improved visibility and functionality. In addition, the conventional tail swing with reduced overhang provides outstanding stability.
Tough, powerful and reliable
The TB240 packs a maximum bucket breakout force of 4,517 kg, along with a maximum arm digging force of 1,865 kg. Its noteworthy reach and lifting capacities enable maximum productivity, making the excavator a great choice for the most demanding applications.

This hydraulic machine comes with triple-flanged track rollers, a heavy-duty dozer blade with float, in addition to a large wrap-around counterweight that protects engine components from potential damage. It comes standard with 35.05-centimeter rubber tracks; steel tracks of the same length are also available

Focusing on operator satisfaction

Takeuchi places great emphasis on operator well-being as the TB240 is loaded with features designed for a comfortable, efficient working environment. The spacious interior is well-equipped with pilot-operated controls, travel controls with large foot petals, a foot-operated boom switch and easy-to-reach rocker switches. System information is displayed on a 14.48-centimeter color monitor, and the excavator is illuminated with halogen work lights.

The TB240 also provides a deluxe high-back suspension seat, adjustable arm rests, air conditioning as well as a skylight with sunshade. Other highlights include a proportional slide switch for auxiliary hydraulics, travel alarm and retractable seat belts. A large, lockable service hood offers protection from vandalism in addition to easy, convenient access for maintenance work.
