TB280FR Compact Excavator

The largest excavator in the FR platform, the TB280FR features a patented side-to-side (STS) offset boom combined with the tight tail swing for unmatched visibility to the work equipment and enables it to rotate fully with very little overhang.  Its low center of gravity and optimized counterweight placement creates an extremely stable platform with  lifting capabilities similar to that of a conventional machine.

Four Pillars

Side-to-Side (STS) Boom System – Provides unmatched visibility to the work equipment and it allows the machine to operate in very confined areas, rotating 360 degrees just inches beyond the width of the track.

Unmatched Capability – The Full Rotation (FR) design allows the boom to come back over center enabling the machine to make a full rotation in very tight work sites.

Dual Auxiliary Hydraulics – Standard first and optional second auxiliary hydraulic circuits greatly improve performance and attachment versatility.

Automatic Step Down Travel Motors – Provide torque on demand when pushing, climbing, or turning in high speed mode.

Optional Blade Float – Is now standard equipment and allows the blade to float freely over the contour of the ground to simplify finish work.

Pick Your Mode – Power, and High Altitude modes allow the operator to choose the operating mode best suited to the application.

Emission Compliant Engines – Provide outstanding power, fuel economy, low noise levels, and long service lives.

Heavy Duty Offset Boom Structure – Uses four large king pins to distribute shock and forces through the main frame via the over sized box reinforced arms for exception durability.

Cushioned Cylinders – Reduce shock to the operator and machine improving comfort and component life.

All Steel Construction – The engine hood, side covers and access panels are all steel for increased durability.

Heavy Duty Blade – Integrated gusset reinforcements and large blade cylinder give you the strength and durability you expect from the class leader.
