Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM)

TFM is installed on all Takeuchi machines above 4-tonnes, TFM is optional on machines under 4-tonnes.

TFM is a remote Telematics monitoring tool that utilises machine data to better manage your fleet, and to keep costs down by being alerted to machine performance and health.

TFM remotely connects users to their Takeuchi equipment by providing alerts and machine information including location, utilisation, performance, and maintenance data to give insights into where and how equipment is being operated.

Takeuchi is providing TFM free of charge during the initial warranty period. For continued Telematics support for your Takeuchi machines, customers can extend the TFM cover via the local Takeuchi dealership.
