Takeuchi Introduces New Crawler Dumper to North America

Takeuchi is now offering an equipment option designed to move heavy materials across challenging terrain — the TCR50-2 crawler dumper. Previously available from Takeuchi in other parts of the world, the manufacturer is now bringing the crawler dumper to its North American customer base.

“Urbanization here in North America has led to a greater need for these agile machines that can carry heavy loads over unstable or rough terrain, often in confined spaces,” said Lee Padgett, Product Manager for Takeuchi-US.

Weighing 14,440 pounds with a 118-horsepower engine, the TCR50-2 crawler dumper can be used in a wide range of applications. With a 65-degree dumping angle and 8,157-pound maximum loading weight, the TCR50-2 allows operators to carry up to 2.7 cubic yards of material while rotating and dumping it in a single cycle. The TCR50-2’s ability to rotate its dump bed 180 degrees reduces both the need to constantly reposition the machine and deterioration of its rubber tracks.

The operator’s station on the TCR50-2 features a 5.7-inch, multi-information color display with standard 180-degree rearview camera, hydraulic joystick controls, adjustable suspension seat, air conditioner, radio with USB functionality, and large cup holder.

The TCR50-2’s hydraulic pilot controls deliver smooth operation for travel and dump body functions, while the foot throttle efficiently adjusts engine speed. Wide-opening maintenance covers offer exceptional access to the engine and routine inspection points.

The crawler dumper also features LED work lights and a tinted sun visor, while the cab window has a rear windshield wiper and window vents for greater visibility. A customizable travel alarm can be adjusted to sound for forward and reverse travel or only when the unit is put into reverse. Grip steps and handlebars provide steady access to service areas at the top of the machine.

Takeuchi’s Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard on the TCR50-2. TFM reduces downtime and controls costs by providing owner/operators with machine health and condition, run time (hours), and machine location, as well as remote diagnostics, scheduled maintenance reminders, and customizable alert settings. TFM also gives owners the ability to geofence their machines, helping them protect and secure their investments.
