Takeuchi Three Models from the Japanese Equipment Innovator Advice to Buyers "Wheel loaders are ideal for hard surface, landscape, tree removal, nursery and load- and-carry applications due to their higher travel speeds, articulation steer, high oper- ating capacities, visibility and center pin," says Lee Padgett, product manager at Takeu- chi-US. "The machines usu- ally come standard with their own style of hydraulic quick- coupler that is convenient for exchanging different attach- ments." T akeuchi manufacturing began in 1963 and has been a pioneer in the com- pact 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 one of the first compact track loaders. Today, Takeuchi is a world leader in the manufacture and service of compact construction equipment, including track loaders, wheel loaders, conventional excavators and zero tail swing excavators. According to Takeuchi, its compact wheel loaders are designed and engineered to be powerful, efficient and durable, providing a high level of quality and perfor- mance. Takeuchi says its products are the result of extensive research, testing and refinement and feature a standard two-year, 2,000-hour full machine warranty. The Takeuchi machines feature a compact design that allows them to easily maneuver in tight spaces with minimal damage to lawns, pavement or other sensitive surfaces. They provide reach and dump height for material handling, and the spacious opera- tor's station is elevated giving the operator greater visibility and jobsite awareness. These compact wheel loaders deliver power and precise control for in- creased productivity and lower operational and maintenance costs, which make them a great alter- native to skid steer load- ers. These machines are ideal for loading mulch and sod, removing snow, feeding hoppers or sort- ing and stockpiling ma- terial. The available road gear allows the TW65 and TW80 to travel speeds up to 25 mph, and the avail- able high-flow hydraulics provides greater attach- ment versatility. The cabs on the Takeu- chi wheel loaders are spacious and provide comfort, including air conditioning and heat, adjustable armrest and controller position, as well as convenient stor- age compartments for the operator. The automotive- styled interior design also features a frameless door for enhanced visibility, easy-to- operate function switches, inching pedal for precise machine control and precision pilot controls. Currently through the factory, Takeuchi offers several general-purpose construc- tion buckets and pallet forks. Its wheel loaders do come standard with auxiliary hydraulics that can power many different attachments such as brooms, plows and snow blowers that can be sourced through its dealer network. 124 Compact Equipment JULY/AUGUST 2018 W H E E L L O A D E R S
