Takeuchi-US has released the first hybrid dual-powered excavator in its lineup with the TB216H compact excavator. The TB216H features both an electric motor and diesel engine with its own pump group to power the machine’s hydraulics. The dual-power feature enables the operator to work indoors or outdoors, increasing versatility.
Machine performance is consistent regardless of the power source the operator chooses. In diesel mode, the machine is powered by a Yanmar Tier 4 Final engine that offers an output of 14.9 hp. For emissions-free environments, the machine can be powered by the 14.2-hp electric motor.
The diesel engine can be used for normal day-to-day operation to load, unload and power the machine to an enclosed jobsite, where it can then be plugged into a 400- to 480-volt three-phase power source for 100% emission-free operation. Should the machine be connected to electric power while running the diesel engine, the diesel engine will automatically shut off and the machine will begin to run off electric power once the key has been cycled. The ignition, throttle, joysticks and travel functions are the same regardless of the mode selected to power the machine.
