    Anybody have any experience with a Takeuchi TW80 wheel loader? Looking for any feedback or reviews?

    I have no experience with them but know it is not made by Takeuchi...I'm by no means saying that's a bad thing, I'm not sure any of them are made by the manufacturers that sell em. I have a Kubota R630 and I know it's built in Europe, weather or not kubota builds it is hard to say but I doubt it.

    How do you like the R630? I have 2 Kubota excavators. They have been nothing but great machines.

    I think the TW80 is a Atlas Wyerhausen or something spelled like that

    I know Wacker, CAT, Kubota and JCB build their own. CASE, Deere and Takeuchi both buy them from others.

    I do not think anyone builds them in the US. Most, if not all, are coming from Europe, usually Germany.
