Mecalac unveils the all-new TLB880 Backhoe Loader
Mecalac Construction Equipment UK has launched a new product addition to its backhoe loader portfolio – the TLB880.
Combining impressive power, efficiency and capability with heavy-duty design and exceptional build quality, the state-of-the-art model is perfect for small companies and rental fleets alike.
Available now through approved dealers nationwide, the TLB880 completes Mecalac’s world-renowned backhoe range, joining the TLB870, TLB890 and TLB990.
Powered by a Stage V-compliant Perkins 904 turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine, the TLB880 delivers 100hp (74.5kW) at 2,200rpm and 317 lb.ft (430Nm) of torque at 1,500rpm. Paired with a choice of either four-speed synchro shuttle transmission or servo power synchro powershift gearbox, the new model offers fast and effortless roading speeds of up to 24mph (40km/h).
To ensure fast cycle times and precise actuation, the TLB880 adopts Mecalac’s proven closed-centre hydraulics system, delivering a maximum flow rate of 143L/min and operating pressure of 250bar. Combined with ergonomic controls for comfortable operation, the innovative hydraulic system makes the TLB880 a powerhouse of productivity.
Bringing class-leading performance to the worksite, the TLB880 achieves a dig depth of 4,401mm (5,744mm deep dig dipper), dipper reach of 5,725mm (6,995mm deep dig dipper), dipper tear-out force of 42kN and bucket tear-out force of up to 69kN. This ensures maximum efficiencies for the operator and makes the backhoe suitable for a wide variety of applications, including civil engineering, highway maintenance, utilities and agriculture.
Like all Mecalac equipment, safety has been considered a top priority in the design and development of the TLB880. Alongside the cab conforming to ROPS and FOPS ISO 3471/3449, the new model guarantees exceptional visibility, boasts front and rear LED work lights as standard, features a mechanical transport lock and can be fitted with a reverse warning alarm.
A fully-tilting engine hood allows for easy service access, while a lockable side-mounted toolbox means you’re perfectly prepared for daily maintenance checks. Alongside standard fittings, operators can specify an extensive range of optional attachments including a variety of buckets, pallet forks and more!
