Takeuchi-US, a leader in compact equipment, features the TB240 in its lineup of excavators. The TB240 delivers increased performance, greater working range, improved operator comfort, and improved serviceability.

This model represents some of the most advanced compact hydraulic excavators available today, featuring an EPA Final Tier IV compliant engine, greater hydraulic performance, advanced multi-function electronic displays as well as spacious operator stations with precision pilot controls, improved visibility and deluxe suspension seats.

With an operating weight of 8,289 pounds, the TB240 compact excavator delivers an impressive 9,959 pounds of bucket digging force — nearly 15 percent more than the previous TB235. The Tier 4 computer-controlled Yanmar engine provides over 35 gross horsepower, an increase of over 20% and features new working modes; Eco and Power for greater performance.

Featuring the same precision pilot controls that operators have come to expect on Takeuchi excavators, the machine has been upgraded to include adjustable auxiliary flow settings so multiple attachments can be set-up; greatly improving the versatility. The TB240 features a reinforced boom with large gusset reinforcements for improved strength and durability. The body has been redesigned to allow for ground-level panoramic serviceability, eliminating the need for a tilting operator station.
