Fully Hydraulic YET Compact Excavator 3.5 tonne

  • 3465kg operating weight
  • 3,245mm dig depth
  • 18.2kw engine
  • Two speed travel
  • Overload warning device
  • Electronic engine monitoring
  • Air con available as an option


The distinctive styled cab provides a very comfortable working environment - designed for maximum operator comfort for all day operating at least 12 % bigger than older Takeuchi models.

Operators have the advantage of improved 360° visibility with three well positioned cab mirrors one internal and two external.

Two way auxiliary hydraulics plumbed to the boom arm - controlled with left hand lever or foot pedal. Both hand and foot controls for those operators more familiar with foot pedals often used on larger excavators.

The front window easily retracts into the roof (gas-strut assist) and the front base window is easy to remove and store behind the seat. A one piece toughened glass door, improves visibility, and is much cheaper to replace in the event of site damage


Features the unique tilt-up cab for easy access to critical service areas - easy re-fuelling point, access at ground level to service points and a well positioned hour meter – no more climbing into the cab.

Good warning devices help prevent service issues; battery charge, engine oil pressure, coolant temperature, air cleaner, water temperature and fuel gauge.

Durable design with 100% steel - sectioned panels around the turntable and engine hood can be easily repaired and replaced.
