By Jenny LescohierMay 17, 2022

With an operating weight of 34,215 lbs. (rubber track), a maximum bucket breakout force of 22,256 lbs. and a maximum arm digging force of 13,490 lbs., the TB2150R is the latest in a line of 15 excavator models

Takeuchi introduces the new TB2150R, a 15t excavator with a fixed boom arrangement and reduced tailswing design.

“The design of the TB2150R makes it an exceptional platform for applications that require more compact dimensions and powerful performance,” said David Caldwell, national product manager for Takeuchi.

“These applications would include road and bridge work, urban revitalization projects, large scale utility installations and general construction.”

He added, “By adding the TB2150R to our excavator line-up, we’re providing our customers with a larger, more powerful option that can help them tackle a much broader range of jobs.”

With an operating weight of 34,215 lbs. (rubber track), a maximum bucket breakout force of 22,256 lbs. and a maximum arm digging force of 13,490 lbs., the TB2150R is the latest in a line of 15 excavator models from Takeuchi.

The only machine larger is the TB2150 with an operating weight of 34,646 lbs. Takeuchi said the main difference between the two models is the fixed boom arrangement and reduced tailswing design.

The TB2150R is powered by a 114-hp Deutz TCD3.6L4 turbocharged engine that delivers 338 ft-lb of torque and features a DOC+SCR diesel exhaust aftertreatment system.

The TB2150R offers three working modes – ECO, Standard, and High Altitude – allowing operators to match the working mode to their specific application. Additionally, the hydraulic system includes three standard auxiliary circuits with the primary or high-flow circuit capable of delivering up to 59.2 gpm.

The TB2150R’s cab offers an air-suspension seat with heat and a seven-inch, multi-function color display that keeps the operator informed of machine performance. The display can also be used to set flow and pressure rates for a wide range of hydraulic attachments.

The Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard on the TB2150R. With TFM, owners and operators can remotely connect to their Takeuchi excavators and track loaders. 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.
