Takeuchi’s new TB335R short tail swing compact excavator is made for stability in tight spaces. 

“The TB335R’s short tail swing design results in a rear overhang of only 3.1 inches over the tracks, making it ideal for working in tight or confined spaces,” said David Caldwell, national product manager for Takeuchi. “It also provides outstanding stability rarely found in a short tail swing machine, along with smooth, intuitive controls that help operators tackle tough jobs with ease.”

Part of the TB300 Series, the cab version of the 3.5-ton excavator has an operating weight of 8,310 lbs., a maximum bucket breakout force of 9,127 lbs. and a maximum arm digging force of 4,290 lbs.

The excavator is powered by an EPA Tier 4/ EU Stage V emission-compliant engine delivering 24.4 hp and a maximum torque of 70.6 ft-lbs. The TB335R offers two working modes – Standard and ECO – allowing operators to match the mode to the task at hand, choosing more power or fuel savings as desired.

The TB335R’s cab includes a 7-inch touchscreen, multi-function color display. Canopy models offer a 4.3-inch, high-definition, multi-function display.

Cab models also feature air conditioner, heat/defrost, windshield wiper and washer, skylight with sunshade and AM/FM radio with Bluetooth technology. Both cab and canopy models have low-effort, pilot-operated joystick controls, a deluxe high-back suspension seat with head rest and retractable seat belt to keep operators comfortable and productive.

The Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system is standard on the TB335R during the warranty period. With TFM, owners and operators can remotely connect to their Takeuchi track loaders and excavators. TFM delivers alerts and machine information such as location, utilization, performance and maintenance status, as well as insights into how and where equipment is being operated.

Prior to this introduction, Takeuchi offered 15 excavators models. Last spring, the company introduced its TB2150R, a 15t excavator with a fixed boom arrangement and reduced tailswing design.
