On its stand at the recent Hillhead plant and machinery exhibition, Takeuchi gave the first UK public viewing of its new TB320 mini excavator, a 2-tonne addition to its stylish 3 series range.

The manufacturer is promoting this model (pictured above) as a versatile general tool carrier as much as an excavator, as it has three auxiliary ports as standard with a fourth line optional.

The first two lines have proportional control for high-flow attachments.

LED work lights are fitted on the machine’s roof and on the boom arm.

The TB320 has an expandable track frame adjusting from 980mm to 1370mm, and two-speed tracking is available with auto step down.

The machine has an operating weight of 2060kg with a cab or 1930kg with a canopy, meaning it can be towed on a trailer together with an additional bucket and materials while being within the 3.5-tonne towing threshold.

Also making its first public appearance was the new TB370W wheeled excavator (below), a compact 7.5-tonne machine.
