The TB108, Takeuchi's smallest hydraulic excavator, offers a maximum dig depth of 5.5 feet. However, Takeuchi manufactures a full line of compact excavators with dig depths that range from 5.5 feet to 18 feet, according to the company website.
Weighing only 2033 pounds, the TB108 is ideal for working in confined areas that may alternatively require manual labor. It has an arm reach of 9.5 feet, as well as a hydraulically retractable track frame that can be adjusted to less than 30 inches. Other features include an adjustable-width backfill blade, dual-pin position buckets, and variable speed travel. The fuel tank has a capacity of 5.5 gallons.
