2017 Has begun with the newest fleet of Takeuchi diggers in Sussex
As you may already know, just before Christmas we took the bold step to replace our entire Bobcat digger fleet with brand new, superior quality Takeuchi machines and we now have the newest fleet of Takeuchi diggers in Sussex.
We have already had some great feedback from customers:
The machine he was using “Was an absolute pleasure to operate not just because it was new.”
“Of course I’m enjoying using the new machine, its a Takeuchi, it doesn’t get much better than that”.
Here are some reasons why we chose this brand:
- Operators love them!
- Japanese reliability.
- Robust, quality build.
Years of proven performance, cost effectiveness and endurance whilst on our own hire fleet.
Their safety is recognised throughout the world.
The exterior has been designed to provide a modern appearance, maximum operator comfort and improved service access.
These high-tech machines are user and environmentally friendly and meet international standards.
The excavators have class-leading digging performance.
Micro to 8 tonne, these are the models we now have:

With a retractable undercarriage, foldable ROPS, and minimal tail swing the TB210R can travel through a standard doorway and work in the most confined applications. Once in position the operator can quickly transform the TB210R to a wider stance for outstanding stability. Despite the compact dimensions at the rear, Takeuchi has swapped the previous two-cylinder engine, for a three-cylinder Kubota motor, boasting 11.6hp (8.7kW) and a healthy 36Nm of torque. That’s a 21% increase in power over the previous model, resulting in a 10% boost to both arm and bucket breakout forces.
