Takeuchiís magnificent 7

Takeuchi has returned to the 7-tonne market with its new TB370 excavator. For many years, Takeuchi’s old 7-tonne TB175 was a regular feature on sites up and down the UK, and the arrival of a brand new TB370 model should make a big splash with plant hire and contactors.

Weighing 7,042kg, offering 42.4kW of power, and providing 48.4kN of digging force, the new TB370 appears to be very good all-rounder. Boasting Takeuchi’s latest jog-dial controls and colour touch screen VDU, the TB370 comes complete with standard features including full all-round LED lighting, floating dozer blade, colour VDU, auto fuel pump, lifting check valves, hydraulic hitch pipework and adjustable auxiliary flows. Even the famous Takeuchi tilt-up cab is making a comeback, the unique and easy tilt-up is said to provide excellent service access.

The TB370 has a dig depth of 4,085mm, dump height of 4,545mm and ground reach as far as 6,565mm. The new digger is also available with a two-piece boom. Takeuchi is now Stage 5 ready across the range up to 9 tonnes and with a model in virtually every weight class with short tail, hybrid, offset, mono and two-piece booms there is a machine to suit every application, reckons the manufacturer.
