2024 sees the official launch of the most highly anticipated electric mini excavator, Takeuchi’s new TB20e.

The new 100% battery powered TB20e is now available in the UK following extensive 2-year field testing. The power performance, work-rate and operating hours have been key to the unique design and Takeuchi can confidently say that the TB20e matches a TB216 in every aspect, it’s just quieter with zero emissions.

The new TB20e is a 100% battery powered mini that delivers 8 hours of continuous working time at 65% load. That is a significant output that matches the typical work-rate of its equivalent diesel TB216. The TB20e matches for dig depth, dump height, travel and slew speed.

It features electro-hydraulic controls, 24.7kW lithium-ion battery and 3 charging options: onboard, offboard and tethered. Available with a portable fast charger that securely rests on the blade when transporting.

The Electric Takeuchi has been in the United Rentals fleet for 2 years in the USA and Takeuchi are confident of its performance credentials. It delivers a quieter zero emission model that can get to work anywhere. For the hirers and utilities companies looking for a zero carbon high performance machine the new TB20e is certainly one to watch.
