Takeuchi TB210R mini excavator adds power, keeps size
The new Takeuchi TB210R super-mini excavator is heavier and more powerful than the model it replaces — the TB108 — but it retains its compact dimensions for working in very tight and challenging spaces.
Weighing in at 1,150 kg, the TB210R is classified as a short-radius machine with the counterweight running minimally outside the extended tracks. A fold-down ROPS bar is integrated into the machine, and the body parts are all steel fabricated, which is good news for contractors who use their machine constantly and for the hire industry.
"Rental operators will be pleased that even trailer-loaded with a set of buckets and hitch the TB210R grosses around 1.3 tonnes," Takeuchi says, "allowing the machine to be towed using a conventional utility or a family sedan without any special electronic braking system."
The digger’s tracks measure just 750 mm wide but can be hydraulically expanded up to 1,020mm when maximum stability is required. Power is delivered by a three-cylinder Kubota diesel engine that pumps out 11.5 horsepower (8.6kW).
"There are full hydraulic servo levers and controls with a have a two-pattern change over selector," Takeuchi says. "The TB210R is fully configured to run a large range of attachments such as hammers, augers or compaction plates."
Service access to the TB210R is very easy, the company adds. An under-seat bonnet tilt lever allows close access to the most important components, while both the right and the left side panels swing open for full mechanical access.
