Takeuchi report a very busy 6 months in Ireland, right across the range of excavators.

Takeuchi remains one of Ireland’s favourite brands of excavator – popular with operators and hirers alike, and very often considered the most reliable part of any rental fleet.
It’s the Micro, the 3 tonne TB230, 1.6 tonne TB216 and the 6 tonne TB260 that remain the most popular Takeuchi models in Ireland’s rental fleets.
Takeuchi’s micro is a best seller in Ireland offering one of the easiest an easy to operate option for DIY hire. In the larger weight class, the TB260 offers plant hire 6 tonnes of power in a compact size

With the recent arrival of the latest towable Takeuchi hire companies now have another Takeuchi option to consider.


New Portable Power from Takeuchi – the latest compact mini in the towable weight class.

The TB225 offers rental companies a far more powerful yet legally towable option – compact in size with the advantage of extendable tracks. In both cab and canopy the TB225 comfortably works within towing restrictions; weighing-in at just under 2400kg cab or 2265kg canopy, there’s plenty of room for attachments and materials on the trailer.


Maximum productivity is guaranteed, the TB225 comes with 16.5kW of power, 19.3kN of digging force and breakout of 12.8kN; far more powerful than other mini excavators in this weight class.

The new mini is very compact in overall size. It comes with familiar expandable tracks taking the machine from a very narrow 1100mm up to 1500mm; providing maximum accessibility in narrow areas combined with massive digging stability when digging deep.

TB225 features joystick proportional control. The thumb operated slider on the joystick gives maximum precise variable hydraulic control, ideal for auxiliary attachments including augers and grabs. This feature is common on larger excavators and now Takeuchi have added this popular feature to the towable range.


A machine designed for maximum all-round operating visibility, including right down into the footwell, critical for utilities work. LED work lights as standard positioned on the cab and boom provide maximum visibility in darker working environments.

To meet the higher demands of safety across construction and utilities Takeuchi’s TB225 is ready for lifting with the audible lifting check valves on both boom and dipper, fitted as standard.

For added asset protection the TB225 comes with the TSS Takeuchi Security System fitted as standard.
