Takeuchi Increases Bucket Breakout Force on TL126

Takeuchi announces the addition of a model TL126 rubber- track loader to its compact track equipment line.

Designed to replace the prior model TL26, the TL126 incorporates the new Takeuchi red and grey paint scheme, plus increased bucket breakout force and many other performance enhancing features.

The TL126’s specially designed 30.5 centimeter (12 in.) wide rubber tracks provide the traction and stability of a track loader while allowing operation on virtually any ground condition, including improved surfaces. The hydrostatic drive system, which is directly coupled to elevated planetary final drives, provides a durable and efficient power transfer system.

A tilt-up operator’s compartment allows for quick access to the engine, hydrostatic drive system, battery and main control valves. Inside the cab, operators will find a large and comfortable operating environment, which includes a six-way adjustable suspension seat. Integral armrests are combined with fully adjustable pilot operated joystick controls for precise and fatigue-free machine operation.

The TL126 has an operating weight of 3,090 kilograms (6,812 lbs.), 1,700-kilogram (3,748 lbs.) tipping load and bucket breakout force of 2,575 kilograms (5,677 lbs.). Overall machine width without bucket is 1,530 millimeters (60.2 in.) and length without bucket is 2,630 millimeters (103.5 in.). Minimum ground clearance is 275 millimeters (10.8 in.) and maximum lift height to bucket pin is 3,025 millimeters (119.1 in.). Powered by a 45.5-kilowatt (61 hp) diesel engine, the TL126 has a maximum travel speed of 8.5 kilometers per hour (5.3 mph), while developing 3,658 kilograms per foot (8,048 lbf) of traction force.

Standard equipment on the TL126 includes the universal quick attach system, two-way auxiliary hydraulics, hydraulic self-leveling bucket, back-up alarm, front and rear working lights, top and rear windows, and lockable fuel tank and engine compartment.
