Takeuchi Compact Track Loaders — 2014 Spec Guide

Takeuchi manufacturing began in 1963 and has been a pioneer in the compact equipment industry ever since. Takeuchi developed one of the world’s first compact excavators in 1970 and the company’s innovation continued again in the mid-‘80s with the introduction of its first compact track loader. These two products have transformed the North American construction equipment markets and have positioned Takeuchi as a leading provider of compact equipment.

Takeuchi compact track loaders are designed and engineered with power, strength and maneuverability, says the company, providing a high level of quality and performance. Each of the company’s compact track loaders come with a two-year, 2,000-hour full machine warranty. For more peace of mind, Takeuchi offers optional P3 Power Protection Plan choices that provide additional coverage levels for powertrain, powertrain and hydraulics or full machine plans, all with no deductible.

Takeuchi track loaders feature rubber tracks that provide flotation for working in muddy or difficult conditions providing all-weather versatility. A tilt-back operator compartment offers quick and easy access to the engine and major hydraulic components, and a unique undercarriage design uses steel-to-steel contact between the track and rollers for greater durability when working in extreme conditions. A radial-boom design provides the lift height and reach you would expect from a vertical-lift boom design, but with the performance benefits of a radial-lift design. Radial lift means better power transfer and fewer wear points.

A welded track frame incorporates a unitary design with full width structural cross members adding strength and rigidity to the entire machine, and double-reduction, planetary drive motors provide high travel speeds and pushing power for easy maneuvering with heavy attachments. Takeuchi track loaders also offer spacious and comfortable operator compartments for highly productive and fatigue-free operation, and precision joystick controls provide accurate fingertip operation of loader and travel functions.

Because customers are looking for solutions, Takeuchi’s focus is to build machines that incorporate solutions into every component and feature. Takeuchi’s design philosophy is built around four pillars: performance, durability, serviceability and operator comfort. According to Takeuchi, these pillars are really the expectations that every customer has for the machine, no matter what the application.

Advice to Buyers
“When it comes to track loaders, performance and durability are key,” says Kim Robinson, director of sales with Takeuchi US. “Look for a durable undercarriage design. Welded track frames and steel-to-steel contacts between the track and rollers provide greater durability when working on demanding applications. A large operator’s compartment offers greater visibility and comfort, which can reduce operator fatigue, and easy-to-operate pilot controls are ideal for both novice and expert operators. Look for a tilt-back operator’s compartment and heavy-duty rear door, which can provide quick and easy access to components for routine maintenance.”
