ATLANTA, GA – Takeuchi’s TCR50-2 crawler dumper is now available in North America.

“The market for crawler dumpers is growing as demand for them in construction, mining and infrastructure applications increases,” said Lee Padgett, product manager for Takeuchi-US. “Urbanization here in North America has led to a greater need for these agile machines that can carry heavy loads over unstable or rough terrain, often in confined spaces. The TCR50-2 can do all that and more.”

Weighing 14,440 pounds with a 118-hp engine, the TCR50-2 crawler dumper excels in a wide range of applications. With a 65-degree dumping angle and 8,157 lb. maximum loading weight, the TCR50-2 allows operators to carry up to 2.7 cubic yards of material while rotating and dumping it in a single cycle. The TCR50-2’s ability to rotate its dump bed 180° reduces both the need to constantly reposition the machine and deterioration of its rubber tracks.

The TCR50-2’s operator’s station is designed to keep operators informed, comfortable and productive. It features an intuitive 5.7-inch multi-information color display with standard 180° rearview camera, hydraulic joystick controls, adjustable suspension seat, air conditioner, radio with USB functionality and large cup holder.

In addition to its 180° rearview camera, the crawler dumper has LED work lights and a tinted sun visor, while the cab window has rear windshield wiper and window vents, all providing greater visibility. A customizable travel alarm can be adjusted to sound for forward and reverse travel or only when the unit is put into reverse.
