Takeuchi’s New 8.5 tonne excavator - powerful excavating and breakout force in a compact machine size.

The newly designed TB285 meets the growing demand for a compact Takeuchi in the 8-10-tonne weight class.

The TB285 comes complete with a new turbocharged engine that develops more power and greater

torque along with a well proven, high performance hydraulic system with improved power, cycle

times and efficiency.

HEAVY DUTY DOZER DESIGN - dozer 500mm high, two-speed tracking with auto step down when dozing

POWERFUL BREAKOUT FORCE - the TB285 features 8.41% more arm breakout force compared to a TB175 combined with 8.38% more bucket breakout force.

INCREASED REACH of 7290mm and digging depth of 4570mm.

Boom holding valves minimises cylinder drift and helps maintain load control in the event of a hose failure.

ROBUST SITE PROTECTION - cast iron wraparound with 100% steel panels.

REDUCED TAIL SWING - The compact TB285 features a shorter than average tail swing compared to conventional 8.5-tonne excavators. Just 1650mm tail swing radius combined with rounded corners

RELIABLE TRACK DESIGN - Triple flange rollers, maintenance free bearings and larger shaft all add to tracking performance for rough terrain to provide many hours of continuous service.
