Takeuchi-US recently updated its product offering with the introduction of the all-new TS80 skid-steer loaders that are available in both radial and vertical loader arrangements. The TS80 series are the largest models in the Takeuchi skid-steer product line that also includes the TS50 and TS60. Highly maneuverable and powerful, the large frame TS80 series loaders deliver an outstanding blend of performance, durability, and operator comfort.
The new TS80 skid-steer loaders feature a 74 hp. Final Tier 4 Deutz engine that delivers an impressive 192 ft. lb. of torque at 1,800 rpm. A key benefit of the new Deutz engine is its simple maintenance free Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) that does not require regeneration, cleaning, or Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).

“We are very excited and proud to introduce the new TS80 skid-steers to the market because of the machines’ excellent operating capacity and hydraulic performance — the features that make them so powerful and reliable out on the jobsite,” said David Steger, product manager at Takeuchi-US. “Uptime has been improved with these machines, and daily maintenance points like fluid level checks and greasing access have been improved and simplified as well. These are great machines that will not only meet the operator’s needs, but surpass them.”
