With short tail or reduced tail swing the upper structure and cab only exceeds the track footprint by centimetres, allowing operators to work and rotate right up to walls without potentially damaging the machine.


Offering excellent accessibility the TB215R with just 720mm slew radius and a compact rear side, working close up to walls without any potential machine damage. The TB215R has just 70mm overhang at 90° to extended track.

A very compact machine, just 720mm slew radius, the TB215R is a powerful lightweight option. Designed for maximum dig depth 2390mm and dump height 2545mm the new TB215R has excellent working ranges and a powerful engine for a 1.5 tonne machine weight class.

The top mounted hydraulic boom cylinder and internally routed hoses helps avoid potential site damage. The TB215R has double flanged rollers for reliable track retention.

A unique expanding track frame adjusts from 980mm to 1300mm getting access in narrow openings. Added track width gives greater operating stability, as proven on other popular Takeuchi models.

Operators enjoy the smooth operation and powerful digging force from a compact portable machine.
With a maximum dig depth up to 2390mm and dump height of 2545mm alongside a maximum reach at ground level as far as 3945mm the TB215R really does outperform for its compact size.

Precise proportional control valves achieve the smoothest digging operation vital in critical dig sites working around live cables and pipes.

A 1.5 tonne short tail swing is an excellent alternative when space is limited for all types of application – landscaping, utilities, groundworks and street works.
