How does the 16 tonne Takeuchi TB215OR perform in urban areas?

The TB215OR excavator, despite its size, is versatile and easily manoeuvrable in an urban environment. Its rear-view cameras and five different mirrors allow the operator full visibility of the structures and obstacles around them, meaning a small lot is extremely manageable.

This excavator also has a diverse range of attachments available, so you don’t need to hire more than one machine. The Wedgelock-manufactured tilt-hitch makes it even easier to pair the TB215OR with different attachments.
