Norris Sales Meets Takeuchi President and Founder, Akio Takeuchi
Earlier this month, Norris Sales attended the 2017 ConExpo / Con Agg show in Las Vegas to view the current state of the rental and construction industries. With more than 2,500 exhibitors, the ConExpo is the largest Construction Equipment show in North America.
One staple manufacturer that attended was Takeuchi. And, with 12 different models on display - both best-sellers and new products - they were given a large exhibition space in the Central Hall. The founder, and current President and Representative Director of Takeuchi, was also in attendance! Mr. Akio Takeuchi began Takeuchi Manufacturing Co., Ltd. in August 1963 and has been growing the business ever since.
After developing the world's first compact excavator in 1970, Takeuchi came to the Unites States and established a training, parts and distribution facility in Atlanta, GA by the end of the decade. Takeuchi's innovation continued and they introduced the first compact track loader to global markets by the mid-80s. These two products have transformed the North American construction equipment market.
As an authorized Takeuchi dealer in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Norris Sales provides the highest quality track loaders and hydraulic excavators that Takeuchi has to offer.
New Products from Takeuchi
At the the 2017 ConExpo, Takeuchi introduced their two latest machines, the TL10V2 and TB216H.
The TL10V2 Compact Track Loader is the largest vertical lift track loader in the industry and can be utilized in several applications, including landscaping and hardscaping. The TL10V2 allows the user to reach high with the vertical lift loader arrangement. The design of this machine is user-friendly with a smooth, low effort door design for easy entrance. The track design creates a quiet, reduced vibration ride for the best usage experience.
The compact size of the TB216H Hydraulic Excavator allows the machine to work in a wide range of applications with limited accessibility. It is the ideal excavator for plumbing, landscaping, utility installation, and interior demolition. It is also the first hybrid dual-powered model in Takeuchi's lineup. The TB216H features both an electric motor and diesel engine with its own pump group to power the machine’s hydraulics.
