Takeuchi US is expanding its compact excavator range with the introduction of the new TB250-2.

Weighing 4,970 kg, the machine provides Takeuchi with a true 5-ton excavator that is suited for a range of applications including landscape, general contracting and rental.

Features on the excavator include a long arm with integrated thumb mount and a max dig depth of 3.8 metres.

“Takeuchi is excited about the addition of the TB250-2 to the excavator line, and we look forward to providing today’s contractors with a machine that will meet and exceed their expectations on the most demanding jobsites,” said Mike Ross, director of product for Takeuchi.

“Listening to our customers is key to our success and we incorporate that feedback into each and every Takeuchi product to ensure the build quality, performance, and value is unmatched.”


A four-pump hydraulic system provides multi-function capability and precision pilot joysticks deliver smooth and metered control.

The primary auxiliary circuit delivers 92 litres per minute and is controlled using a proportional slide switch located on the left-hand joystick. As well, the multi-function monitor makes it possible to adjust hydraulic flow rates from the cabin, and multiple presets allow quick attachment exchange.

Furthermore, detent mode provides continuous oil flow for various types of hydraulic attachments helping to improve efficiency and reduce fatigue.

Automotive interior

The automotive-style interior is equipped with a high capacity HVAC system to keep the operator comfortable throughout the year, while rocker switches provide a wide range of functions. A large multifunction monitor keeps the operator informed of machine health and performance.

The deluxe high back suspension seat features multiple adjustments for height, weight, fore and aft positions and tilt for greater comfort and customization.

Servicing the TB250-2 is easy to perform due to the large hoods, which open overhead providing access to key daily inspection points, pattern change valve, selector valve, control valve, battery and toolbox.

All grease points are clearly marked and easy to locate down one side of the machine. The fuel fill is located behind a lockable access panel and features a site gauge to simplify refueling.

Takeuchi Fleet Management

The Takeuchi Fleet Management telematics system (TFM) is standard on the new compact excavator. The system allows the owner to view machine vitals, location, utilization, performance and maintenance data remotely and helps ensure machine uptime and availability.
