ATLANTA – Takeuchi-U.S., a compact equipment manufacturer, launches the redesigned TL8R2. The TL8R2 is engineered to provide power, strength and maneuverability. The radial lift design offers a tipping load of 6,041 pounds with an operating weight of 9,182 pounds.
The TL8R2 is equipped with a 74.3 horsepower turbocharged engine that is EPA Final Tier 4 Emission Compliant. The Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) featured on this machine minimizes emissions.
Creep Mode is a standard feature on the TL8R2 models equipped with high flow auxiliary hydraulics. This feature will enable operators to match the forward speed of the track loader to a particular attachment without having to constantly meter the travel lever. The creep mode function is ideal for attachments that require a consistent, repeatable travel speed, such as a cold planer and trencher.
The automotive styled operators station features a 5.7-inch multi-informational color display with a rearview camera and a sealed rocker switch bank that helps improve performance and functionality by providing the operator with a wide range of operational information. Also, standard equipment on the TL8R2 are the low-effort pilot controls and proportional auxiliary switches to give the operator the precision needed to work more efficiently.
Additionally, a pressurized cab is an available option on the TL8R2. Optional cabs are equipped with a roll-up door, A/C, heat, defrost and front wiper and AM/FM/Bluetooth radio.
“Takeuchi is excited to release the completely redesigned TL8R2” said Keith Kramlich, national product and training manager. “Takeuchi prides itself on our continuing tradition of innovation and advancing technology, and the TL8R2 is a perfect example of that. Operators will feel more strength, performance, maneuverability, versatility and efficiency in this machine, increasing their profits.”
