New Electric Takeuchi at the Executive Hire Show

Takeuchi return to the Executive Hire Show with one of the most highly anticipated electric mini excavators for the tool and plant hire industry.

The new 100% battery powered TB20e will be a major highlight at the show, Takeuchi’s first electric is hire-ready and has had extensive 2-year field testing. The power performance, work-rate and operating hours have been key to the unique design and Takeuchi can confidently say that the TB20e matches a TB216 in every aspect, it’s just quieter with zero emissions.

The new TB20e is a 100% battery powered mini that delivers 8 hours of continuous working time at 65% load. That is a significant output that matches the typical work-rate of its equivalent diesel TB216. The TB20e matches for dig depth, dump height, travel and slew speed.

It features electro-hydraulic controls, 24.7kW lithium-ion battery and 3 charging options: onboard, offboard and tethered. Available with a portable fast charger that securely rests on the blade when transporting.

The Electric Takeuchi has been in the United Rentals fleet for 2 years in the USA and Takeuchi are confident of its performance credentials. It delivers a quieter zero emission model that can get to work anywhere. For the hire industry the Executive Hire Show is a chance to come and take a close look.
