GROWTH POWERED BY DEDICATED PEOPLE AND SOLID KUBOTA EQUIPMENT Takeuchi-US recently introduced the TB216 compact excavator replacing the TB016.The TB216 features a Yanmar Tier 4 Final engine producing 15 horsepower for ample power and performance while delivering excellent fuel economy. The excavator has an operating weight of 3900 pounds and features a retractable undercarriage making it easy to transport and maneuver between gates and in confined areas.The undercarriage has a two-speed planetary travel motor that delivers a maximum 2.6 mph travel speed and comes with an automatic shift down feature for greater drive torque when turning or pushing. The 9-inch-wide track helps provide a low ground pressure of only 4.3 psi for working on sensitive surfaces. For backfilling and cleanup work the dozer blade is equipped with bolt-on extensions that can be removed to reduce the overall width of the machine to only 38.6 when the tracks are in the retracted position. The hydraulic system consists of precision pilot joy- sticks that deliver smooth metered control for the operator and has variable displacement pumps that provide excel- lent cycle times and an impressive 4250 pounds of bucket breakout force. The TB216 fits into backyards buildings or just about any tight space on a jobsite. Despite the small footprint operators will be comfortable in a spacious deluxe cab and the adjustable suspension seat allows the operator to easily find a comfortable position. The TB216 replaces the TB016 with the ability to continue to work in tight spaces on the jobsite while adding more horsepower greater reach and increased bucket breakout force said Kim Robinson director of sales for Takeuchi-US. We are excited to introduce this Tier 4 emissions-efficient product to the market for customers who need a machine with a compact foot- print without sacrificing power or reach. www.columbusequipment.com 2 Takeuchi Adds Tier 4 Final TB216 Hydraulic Mini Excavator to Line Model Gross HP Operating Weight Bucket Breakout Force Machine Width TB216 15 3900 lbs. 4250 lbs. 38.6 We are excited to introduce this Tier 4 emissions-efficient product to the market for customers who need a machine with a compact footprint without sacrificing power or reach.

Treton Inc. Foreman Bill Morris seen here in the companys Kubota KX057-4. Bullet-proof productivity is key as Treton services the needs of a wide range of customersincluding ATT Verizon MCI Sprint Northeast Ohio Gas and Horizon Telecommunicationsacross the region. Nine years ago when Pat Covell was starting his utility services company Treton Inc. he wanted to be sure he was getting the best value for his equipment dollar. He demoed every brand of mini excavator he could find including John Deere Caterpillar and Takeuchi. The hands-down winner was Kubota he said. I had two other people I respect try the machines and give me their opinion and we agreed there wasnt a better one out there than Kubota. I still believe that. After nine years of Kubota ownership Covell has been impressed with how well the Kubota equipment has performed and held up. His fleet includes nine mini excavators with models including K057 K040 K035 KX121 and U45 plus an RTV900 utility vehicle and a ZD331 zero-turn mower. They are very productive with very little downtime. We are faithful with changing the fluids and greasing them and weve never had to replace any major parts Covell said. Treton Inc. an Amanda Ohio-based company primarily performs but is not limited to underground and aerial utility work. Customers include ATT Verizon MCI Sprint Northeast Ohio Gas and Horizon Telecommunications. The compact Kubotas are particularly useful in under- ground work Covell noted. In tight places like down- town Columbus we use them for working in the street and we can excavate up to 8 feet deep with a K057. With the Kubotas he said he has the productivity of a rubber-tired backhoe but can keep the work to one lane. Additionally his crews can use a one-ton truck to haul the compact machines so he doesnt need to maintain large trucks. Kubota mini excavators are fast and strong for their size and also very smooth Covell said. My eleven full-time operators all agree they wouldnt want anything else. Another benefit of owning Kubotas is strong resale value Covell said. He generally keeps a machine for four or five years then sells it and upgrades. Covell is a longtime customer of Columbus Equipment Company where he also purchases Komatsu equipment. Columbus Equipment is hard to beat for service in Ohio he said and he was pleased when Columbus Equipment became the local Kubota dealership because of its excellent customer support. 5 Treton Inc. Growth Powered By Dedicated People and Solid Kubota Equipment Kubota mini excavators are fast and strong for their size and also very smooth. My eleven full-time operators all agree they wouldnt want anything else. Pat Covell Owner Treton Inc. 6 You couldnt ask for better people to deal with. Parts are always available or delivered within a day he noted. If we have questions the service department is more than willing to take the time to answer Covell said. His two staff mechanics handle the regular main- tenance on his equipment which is all the Kubotas have ever required. I just cant say enough about the Kubotas because of the lack of maintenance issues. Besides normal wear and tear we havent had to do maintenance on anything. Covell also has an excellent relationship with sales rep. Richard Durst in the Columbus store. Rich has a lot of knowledge of all types of excavating equipment. If hes not sure hell take the time to research it. A lot of my competitors agree hes great to deal with Covell has been in the excavation business for nearly 30 years starting out as a laborer and working his way up. When he started Treton Inc. the company consisted of him and his wife Pam who still helps man- age all of the office functions. In just nine yearsand after having successfully navigated through The Great RecessionTreton has grown to about 30 employees a size Covell is comfortable with. In fact he sometimes turns down offers to bid for work because he wants to retain the companys current size. Excellent customer service loyal employees and reliable Kubota equipment have helped Treton Inc. reach and maintain that enviable position. www.columbusequipment.com Columbus Equipment is hard to beat for service in Ohio.
