Takeuchi Manufacturing – Mini Excavator TB280FR

TB280FR Zero Swing Compact Excavator

Introducing the largest of the zero tail swing excavators, the new TB280FR combines the ability for operators to work in restricted areas with limited space with an impressive one-piece offset boom, which is adjustable for ultimate operator performance. The Takeuchi TB280FR certainly provides power in its performance as it offers an 8.4-tonne weight class, allowing operators to work in spaces that any usual conventional excavator could work in.

Unique Offset Boom

With the unique ability to turn and rotate 360 degrees, which remains within its own track footprint, the offset boom is uniquely controlled by the kingpin. This can reposition the boom for high-quality operator performance when excavating. This can be of particular use for operators as this feature allows for excellent performance when excavating in restricted areas, which can also limit any potential damage to the machine or the work site. The unique offset boom features also become of particular importance in terms of productivity as it can save time when working.

Features and Amenities

The main benefit of the TB280FR is the ability to combine the unique offset boom with the near-zero tail swing. This feature improves the machines versatility and allows for excellence in performance for operators, proving it to be a popular machine. Additional features include the short pitch rubber which allows for the machine to be vibration free, even when travelling on rugged terrain. To overall increase operation duration, the TB280FR offers excellent slew speed and travel time – this becomes of particular importance for operators working long days. Similar to the TB153FR, this machine includes a two-speed travel switch, traction power and a one switch decelerator provided to decrease fuel consumption when the machine is in use.
