New backhoe from Terex
By Lindsay Gale07 August 2014
Terex Construction has introduced a new backhoe loader, the TLB850 that is based on the popular TLB840 but features a 70 kW (94 hp) high performance charge air cooled diesel that Terex claims delivers high performance. It features a closed centre hydraulic circuit that allows oil to by-pass the control valves in the neutral position, consuming minimal power and reducing lever effort for the operator. In addition, with smooth multi-functional operation of boom, dipper extender and bucket, the system allows for fine control and smooth operation for quick, easy and accurate grading and levelling.
Other features of the model include an optional hydraulically-operated gear shift transmission (Servo power synchro), a 4-speed gearbox and a Stage IIIB/ Tier 4i compliant engine.
Reducing exhaust particulate emissions by up to 90%, the Stage IIIB/T4i technology used in the Terex TLB850 backhoe boosts performance at a lower operating cost. With a 6% reduction in fuel consumption, additional 50Nm torque and auto engine idle as standard, the environmentally friendly engine design provides greater power and durability with lower engine effort.
Terex Global Product Manager for backhoe loaders, Jon Beckley, commented: “We know our customers and the challenges they face. That’s why we’ve invested in developing the TLB850 – the latest addition to our fit-for-purpose range of backhoe loaders. Developed using insight from owner-operators and embracing the latest processes, the TLB 850 builds on successes of the previous TLB840 designed to enhance user productivity and efficiency, as well as meeting the highest industry demands."
