Takeuchi-US has launched the new TW80 Series 3 range of compact wheel loaders at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas. This is the first new wheeled loader the manufacturer has launched in several years, designed to improve operator comfort, and hence productivity.
The most significant change is that the operator now sits higher up in the cab for improved visibility. The Takeuchi standard heating and air conditioning system has also been updated to provide better comfort in the cab, while the loader’s control panel has been updated with more intuitive icons.
The TW80-S3 weighs 5,760kg and has a 54 kW Tier 4-compliant Deutz engine. Its compact design makes it perfect for working in tight spaces, claims the manufacturer.
