Several new options are now available and include ride control, bucket positioning, and high-flow auxiliary hydraulics to increase both productivity and versatility.

“We are very excited and proud to introduce the new TS80 skid steers to the market because of the machines' excellent operating capacity and hydraulic performance — the features that make them so powerful and reliable out on the jobsite,” said David Steger, product manager at Takeuchi-US. “Uptime has been improved with these machines, and daily maintenance points like fluid level checks and greasing access have been improved and simplified as well. These are great machines that will not only meet the operator’s needs, but surpass them.”
