• Patented side-to-side (STS) 
offset boom system combined 
with a zero tail swing allows 
the TB180FR to slew 360°, 
inches beyond the excavators 
track width
• Tilt-up operator’s platform 
combined with full opening 
engine compartment offers 
quick service access
• Automatic fuel bleed system 
eliminates the downtime and 
service calls required to bleed 
conventional fuel systems
• Control pattern selector valve 
allows for quick change of 
operating controls between 
SAE and ISO patterns to 
accommodate operator 
preferences
• Variable displacement piston 
pumps efficiently utilize engine 
horsepower while continuously 
adjusting power and speed for 
fast cycle times
• Electrohydraulic push-button 
and proportional slide switch 
located in the left-hand joystick 
insure precise control of the 
auxiliary hydraulic circuit 
• Low center of gravity offers 
the stability and craning 
capacities of conventional 
excavators and the added 
functionality of working in 
exceptionally confined areas
