New compact machines from Terex
By Chris Sleight17 February 2011
Terex will introduce a new line of skid steer loaders - both vertical lift path and radius lift path models - to add to its range of compact equipment. There are eight models, with engine sizes from 37.5 kW to 62.2 kW, and Terex highlights the high ground clearances and rear angles of departure of the machines - 265 mm ground clearance and either 26 degree or 29 degree rear angles of departure, depending on the model.
The range includes four radial lift path models (TSR50, TSR60, TSR70 and TSR80) and four vertical lift path units (TSV50, TSV60, TSV70 and TSV80).
Also new from Terex Construction is the TLB840 backhoe loader, which is designed as a replacement for the TX760B. The new model has a 66 kW Perkins engine and a curved boom design that provides better clearance over obstacles and the ability to load closer into trucks. The backhoe has an operating weight of 7150 kg.
In the light tower segment meanhile, Terex will show its innovative battery powered LED light towers. The AL4L and AL5L towers provide up to 10 hours of run-time with "crisper lighting capabilities compared to 4000W metal-halide models. As battery operated LED units, the light towers eliminate engine noise and emissions. The AL5L offers an on-board generator to charge its batteries.
From Terex AWP comes three new rough terrain scissor lifts, the Genie GS-2669RT, 3369RT and 4069RT. The scissors have a "new industrial design with improved performance", with a front oscillating axle. Terex says "increased power and terrainability enables the machines to drive through sand, mud and over curbs with ease. The entire RT69 family has been enhanced to include increased horse-power by up to 30%, increased platform work space, and a simplified link stack. The new design enables all three to drive and function at full height."
Also new from Terex will be the Genie GR-20J and GR-26J self-propelled vertical masts. These are the machines built by Manitou under the manufacturing alliance announced at last year's Bauma.
