New tracked dumper from Takeuchi
By Thomas Allen09 July 2020
Takeuchi has introduced a new rear-tipping tracked dumper, available in Europe and Oceania.
The 6.5 tonne TCR50-2 replaces the company’s original TCR50 tracked dumper.
The new model has a skip that can rotate left to right 180˚. This ability to tip sideways reduces the amount of manoeuvring the machine has to do on site.
The skip has a 65˚ dump angle and a maximum payload of 3,700kg, and the machine’s hydraulic joystick controls can be used for both travel and dump functions.
The TCR50-2 also has a spacious cab that offers all-round visibility, supplemented by the rear-view camera function that comes as standard on the operator’s 5.7” colour display panel.
The cab also has an adjustable suspension seat, air conditioning, a radio with a USB port, and a large cup holder, to ensure operator comfort and minimise fatigue.
Routine and daily servicing has been made easier by the wide-opening maintenance cover, which offers good access to the engine and routine inspection points.
A standard fuel transfer pump enables operators to refill the tank more easily and quickly.
The new dumper is powered by a Stage V compliant Yanmar turbocharged engine.
