NEW TB257FR - short tail swing with
sts side to side offset boom 

The new TB257FR features a unique patented side-to-side (STS) offset boom coupled with the near zero tail swing, for unrivalled versatility and visibility.

The unique FR design provides for parallel trenching right up to walls  and buildings. 
A floor mounted pedal allows you to position the STS offset boom anywhere across the front of the machine without any reduction in dig depth or ground reach.

For operators, the STS offset boom moves into position, no more moving the whole machine for improved excavating angles, simply let the STS offset do all the work.

The STS offset combined with the near zero tail swing delivers the most versatile compact machine for site. The TB257FR can rotate fully when the boom is stowed in the full upright position, the upper structure and cab only exceeds the track footprint by centimetres.

The TB257FR has a low centre of gravity and optimized counterweight creating an extremely stable platform with lifting capabilities similar to that of a conventional machine.
