Takeuchi tackles tight spots

“The Takeuchi TB28FR came out on top in terms of meeting our requirements. Apart from the competitive price, the machine has an adjustable one-piece offset boom system combined with short tail swing radius. This means the operator is able to slew the arm 360 degrees within the excavator’s track width, allowing fast cycle times even when the boom is in the fully offset position,” Energy Australia’s engineering officer in fleet management Nathan Stuart said.“Our crews often need to work on slopes and difficult grades and the TB28FR’s low centre of gravity provides added stability and craning capacity.“Excellent trench visibility for the operator when the adjustable boom is in the fully offset position was also a winning factor.”Takeuchi distributor Semco said the TB28FR has been popular with contractors who have been looking for an improvement on other machines that have cumbersome, multi-part, two-piece knuckle boom systems that restrict digging depths when operated in the offset position.
