Terex presented its new line of skid-steer loaders and a new backhoe loader at last week’s World of Concrete show in Las Vegas.
The eight new skid-steer models — both vertical lift path and radius lift path — range from 50 to 83 horsepower.
“Terex skid-steer loaders are ideal for rental, landscape, construction, and agricultural applications where contractors and owner/operators need reliable, productive machines that get the job done efficiently and cost effectively,” said Jamie Wright, product manager for Terex Construction Americas.
The four radial lift path models, the TSR50, TSR60, TSR70 and TSR80, and vertical lift path models (TSV50, TSV60, TSV70 and TSV80) were designed with enhanced ground clearance and rear angles of departure. Ground clearance is 10.5 inches on the medium-frame loaders, along with 29-inch rear angle of departure.
Hydraulic joystick controls come standard on all Terex loader models.
Incorporating more than 50 years of engineering expertise into its design, the TLB840 has an 88-hp Perkins engine and is powered by an optional 4-speed servo power syncro transmission with automatic shifting, delivering enhanced fuel efficiency.
“We surveyed customers about what features and functionality they wanted in a backhoe loader, and we designed this machine around what our operators asked for,” said Tom Reith, product manager, “a spacious, ergonomic cab, extended dig depth and reach capabilities with increased power and maneuverability.”
The unit has a curved boom design that offers operators greater clearance to reach over obstacles and the ability to load closer into trucks for greater productivity. The “deep dig” extendable dipper stick is new on the TLB840, along with an optional thumb attachment that enables operators to clamp objects and materials between the bucket and dipper.
