ROAD READY NEW TAKEUCHI TB395W
Takeuchi UK has expanded its new 3-Series excavator range with the new TB395W wheeled excavator seen for the first time in the UK at the recent Plantworx.
The anticipation for the new model was immense since its first showing at Bauma last year and many customers queued up to have a demonstration at the show.
The TB395W provides operators with a highly versatile option that combines powerful excavating performance with on-road capabilities, making it ideal for shorter-term, faster-paced highways projects.
The new TB395W provides a larger, high-performing machine complete with all the unique benefits of a wheeled unit, including higher travel speeds and the ability to handle both on- and off-road applications.
The TB395W features two four-wheel steering modes — 4WS (all-wheel steering) and 4WSC (crab steering). A wide range, longer stick arm allows for greater clearance between the bucket and dozer blade due to arm mount position. As a result, operators of the TB395W can pull the bucket all the way to the dozer blade, which is ideal when working in narrow spaces or moving an obstacle out of the way.
Auto Cruise enables operators to set and adjust their travel speeds by pressing a button or operating a toggle switch (on an optional, multi-function grip). Auto Cruise is ideal for attachments that require a consistent, repeatable travel speed, such as a mulcher, mower or trencher.
The TB395W has a 3-Series interior styling to the interior for an improved cab experience. It features an easy-to-read 8” touchscreen, multifunction colour monitor with integrated air conditioning and DAB radio functions. A deluxe, high-back, air-ride suspension seat, adjustable arm rests, low-effort pilot controls, large flat floor area and integrated footrests help operators remain comfortable and productive throughout the workday.
Using the machine’s intuitive automotive styled jog dial, operators can easily navigate and control the TB395W’s monitor, including its heating and climate control as well as DAB radio functions. Simple, one-touch control switches operate other machine functions,
The TB395W excavator weighs 10,625kg when equipped with outriggers and a blade.
Powered by a Stage V-compliant diesel engine delivering 85kW (113.9HP) at 2,200 rpm and up to 460Nm of torque. A closed-loop, load-sensing hydraulic system delivers smooth control of the work equipment and a wide range of hydraulic attachments. The TB395W’s 4,095mm digging depth and 8,260mm cutting height make it particularly useful on construction sites. The excavator offers a maximum bucket breakout force of 58.9kN, a maximum arm digging force of 39.7kN and a traction force of 57.8kN.
Great serviceability is always a feature on a Takeuchi and the TB395W exceeds with a wide-opening rear engine service door and an overhead-opening right-side cover. Both the service door and right-side cover are constructed of durable steel to discourage vandalism and theft.
Takeuchi’s Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard on the TB395W. TFM reduces downtime and controls costs by providing owner/operators with machine health and condition, run time (hours) and machine location, as well as remote diagnostics, scheduled maintenance reminders and customizable alert settings. TFM also gives owners the ability to geofence their machines, helping them protect and secure their investments.
Engineered for highways the new TB395W provides the power of a tracked excavator but with less disruption, with efficient travel speeds and 2-piece boom providing a compact road ready solution.
