Terex Russian JV launches new grader range
By Murray Pollok18 April 2013
RM-Terex, Terex Construction’s Russian manufacturing joint venture with Russian Machines (RM), has developed four graders with the first mid-range model, the TG 180, shown at Bauma.
The graders are manufactured in Russia at RM’s Bryanskiy Arsenal factory and jointly designed by the two companies.
The graders differ from the RM models in using Cummins or Deutz engines and also feature a large cab offering very good visibility.
The 18 t TG 180 offers a 14.8 t traction force and is powered by a 147 kW engine. The moldboard is 4.27 m long, 700 mm high and has a cutting depth of 450 mm.
The other models in the range are the TG140, TG200 and TG250. The machines are available now, and will be launched with low emission engines for Europe in the second half of this year and early next year for other regulated markets.
