Takeuchi has expanded its TB300 Series excavator product line with the new TB350R short tail swing compact excavator, the first short tail swing model in the manufacturer’s five-ton class. The TB350R has a rear swing overhang of just 2.95”, allowing operators to focus more on their work and worry less about rear-swing impacts.
“Takeuchi continues to design and build excavators that deliver a unique combination of performance, durability, operator comfort and serviceability,” said David Caldwell, national product manager for Takeuchi-US. “As a result, our new TB350R offers many improvements that demonstrate our commitment to providing customers with advanced technology that helps them be more comfortable and productive.”
The TB350R weighs 10,980 lb. in canopy configuration and 11,235 lb. when equipped with a cab. It is powered by a Kubota V2607-CR-E5B diesel engine that is U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final compliant and delivers 41.7 net hp (ISO 9249/SAE1349) and more than 130.2 ft-lb of torque. A four-pump hydraulic system delivers smooth, harmonized control of the work equipment. The TB350R provides a bucket breakout force of 10,431 lb., a traction force of 12,320 lb., and a maximum dig depth of 11’ 8.8”.
Both canopy and cab configurations are equipped with a primary auxiliary circuit plumbed to mid-arm. The cab model also includes a dedicated coupler circuit operated by controls located inside the cab. The primary auxiliary circuit delivers 26.4 gpm at 2,990 psi, making it capable of utilizing a wide range of hydraulically driven attachments.
