Takeuchi reveals second wheeled excavator

Takeuchi has released its second wheeled excavator that is now available globally

Takeuchi has expanded its wheeled excavator lineup with the new TB370W joining the TB395W, becoming the second model from the company that is available globally. 

“The TB370W has all the benefits of a wheeled excavator – mobility, speed, versatility, manoeuvrability and minimal ground impact,” Takeuchi global sales director Clay Eubanks says.  

“It combines powerful excavating performance with on-road capabilities, all in a more compact size, making it an ideal machine for shorter-term, faster-paced projects.” 

Offering higher travel speeds, two-wheel steering and auto cruise control, Takeuchi says the new excavator is packed with different features. 

Operators can select their preferred working mode from three options – standard, Eco and Eco Plus. Eco Plus automatically changes the excavator’s working mode between standard and Eco depending on its load for optimal efficiency. 

“The TB370W is a machine that provides the performance customers expect from Takeuchi, but with the unique features of a smaller wheeled unit that make it ideal for use on paved surfaces when working on roads, bridges or in congested urban areas,” Eubanks says. 

The TB370W excavator weighs 7,900kg when equipped with outriggers and a blade, and is powered by an EU Stage V compliant diesel engine delivering 54.6kW (73.2hp). 

Takeuchi says a load-sensing hydraulic system delivers smooth control of the work equipment and a wide range of hydraulic attachments. 

Inside the cab, operators benefit from an eight-inch (21cm) touchscreen display that can control a range of functions from the operator’s fingertips, including heating and air conditioning, radio and Bluetooth. 

The Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system is standard on the TB370W in Europe and the United States.
