| August 28, 2014 |
Takeuchi had enhanced machine performance and operator comfort in mind when launching the company’s newest compact wheel loaders—the TW65 Series 2 and TW80 Series 2.
The Tier 4 Final-compliant machines feature a compact design for maneuverability on tight jobsites, and provide reach and dump heights up to 8 feet 6 inches.
The TW65 Series 2 has an 11,354-pound operating weight, 4,050-pound rated operating capacity, 9,171-pound tipping load and a bucket breakout force of 11,600 pounds. The 12,700-pound TW80 Series 2 has a 4,445-pound rated operating capacity, 12,700-pound tipping load and 13,960-pound bucket breakout force.
Equipped with a turbocharged, water-cooled Deutz engine that provides 192 foot-pounds of torque at 1,800 rpm, the loaders deliver 73 horsepower with a rated engine speed of 2,200 rpm.
The loaders feature a 12.4-mph standard travel speed; however, a high-speed road gear option is available that boost max speed to 24.8 mph. The road gear option also features a ride control accumulator that assists in maintaining machine control during periods of high-speed travel.
The new cab is both heated and air conditioned, and features an adjustable armrest and controller position. The automotive-styled interior has a frameless door to improve operator visibility, user-friendly function switches, an inching pedal for precise machine control and precision pilot controls.
A new multi-function pilot operated joystick control handles all loader and travel functions, as well as including a thumb wheel to control auxiliary hydraulics. An optional high-flow auxiliary system delivers up to 26 gpm.
