Price Paid : $0.00
Years of Use : 3+ Years
Implements : 12" buckt, 18" bucket
Purchased From : Kirby-Smith of Tulsa
Strengths Highest bucket breakout force in class (4079).
Very smooth hydraulic controls.
Yanmar diesel is extremely reliable, quiet and fuel efficient.
Parts are easily obtainable but very rarely needed. Filters are available at your local NAPA auto parts.
More side-swing boom rotation that most (90 degrees vs 73)
Expandable tracks and two speed travel.
Weaknesses Not a zero tail swing.
Overall We have rented, leased and owned several makes of compact equipment. When it comes to mini-excavators, Takeuchi is the standard by which all others are judged.
