Takeuchi TL10, TL12 Compact Track Loaders

July 19, 2012

Takeuchi's TL10 and TL12 compact track loaders feature Tier 4-Interim engines with an exclusive “Eco Mode” function designed to reduce fuel consumption during operation.

New selectable auxiliary work modes allow the operator to fine-tune the auxiliary hydraulic output to three specific attachment settings for reduced downtime on job sites, the company says. The new track loaders also feature enhanced controls, and a pressurized cab with improved HVAC performance.

The TL10 has an operating weight of 10,318 pounds, a tip load of 6,867 pounds (7,793 pounds with optional counterweight), and an improved rated operating capacity of 2,403 pounds (2,723 pounds with optional counterweight). The TL12 has an operating weight of 11,618 pounds, and a tip load of 8,102 pounds (9,315 pounds with optional counterweight).

The fully welded, purpose-built frame features integrated cross members and an industry-exclusive undercarriage that maintains steel-to-steel contact between the large, heavy-duty rollers and forged steel imbeds that are incorporated into the rubber track. As with previous Takeuchi track loaders, double-reduction planetary drives are positioned rearward to allow more contact points between the sprocket and track for traction forces and track durability.
