ATLANTA – Takeuchi-US, a compact construction and earthmoving equipment manufacturer, has expanded its product offering in North America with a new line of skid-steer loaders. These versatile skid-steer loaders range in operating weight from 6,500 lbs. to 8,600 lbs., and have a rated operating capacity ranging from 1,500 lbs. to 3,000 lbs.
All models come equipped with a powerful and efficient diesel engine that provides power to spare in the most demanding applications. Radial and vertical lift path options are available and allow the customer to choose the configuration that best suits their needs. The TS Series skid-steer loaders are also available with an optional two-speed transmission, providing travel speeds up to 12 mph for greater productivity.
The new Takeuchi skid steer loaders provide a spacious operator’s station and feature low effort pilot controlled joysticks that are responsive and easy to operate. These machines also include a standard foot throttle that allows the operator to set or change the engine speed without taking their hands off of the controls.
Cleaning and maintenance is made simple with the tilt-up operator’s station and swing out cooling module. The oversized axle pods with specially designed mechanical faced seals provide outstanding protection from dirt and debris, reducing costly downtime.
