MJ Abbott's new Takeuchi TB210R

The Takeuchi TB210R Micro is Takeuchi's smallest excavator, weighing in at just 1180kg. Its micro dimensions enable it to pass through a normal doorway, which is ideal when working with restricted access. The TB210R expands to wider tracks for added stability when digging and tracking.

MJ Abbott's Technical Director, Adrian Abbott, commented: "The Takeuchi TB210R is ideal for our irrigation engineers because it is a powerful digging machine despite its compact size, and its weight makes it an ideal machine to tow behind a service van.

"We are delighted to take delivery of our second TB210R following the success of the first one, and it will join our fleet of over 30 Takeuchi excavators ranging from 1 to 9 tonnes."

Chris Webb, owner of Webb Plant Sales, added: "MJ Abbott has been a loyal Takeuchi customer for many years, and it is an honour to supply them with the 3,000th Takeuchi excavator sold in the UK in 2017. And the power to weight ratio of the TB210R is significantly higher than the CAT D6 in the photo!".
