Takeuchi TL8 Compact Track Loader

Powerful and nimble, the Takeuchi TL8 is the latest track loader in the Takeuchi line-up.  The Takeuchi TL8 Compact Track Loader features increased operating capacity and greater engine power allowing you to complete the toughest jobs.

Takeuchi has developed a new selectable attachment control system for the TL8 Loader that provides three adjustable attachment settings where you can program attachment specific hydraulic flow rates from the comfort of the operator’s seat.  This exciting new feature further enhances the capability of the TL8 Track Loader and enables you to optimize the machine to the job at hand.  When combined with the standard 14 pin connector, multi-function control handle, and fingertip proportional controls, you no longer have a compact track loader, you now have an extremely capable tracked tool carrier.

Designed for optimal operator comfort, the cab of the Takeuchi TL8 features a spacious interior with a fully adjustable high back suspension seat, a roll-up door for those nice days, and improved HVAC performance for those not-so-nice days.  To further sweeten the pot, the cab on TL8 is now pressurized, ride performance is improved, and the controls have been enhanced.

Unmatched and extremely responsive, the precision pilot controls found on the TL8 become an extension of the operator.  To improve versatility a pattern change selector valve is available and it allows the operator to quickly and easily change from standard ISO, Takeuchi controls to an “H” control pattern.

Finally, for superior strength and durability the Takeuchi TL8 features a fully welded, purpose built frame.  Integrated cross members and an industry exclusive undercarriage that maintains steel-to-steel contact between the large, heavy duty rollers and forged steel imbeds that are incorporated into the rubber track result in a long life track system that will withstand many hours on the job.  Double reduction planetary drives are exceptionally powerful and are positioned rearward allowing more contact points between the sprocket and the track delivering unparalleled traction forces and better track durability.
