By Helen Wright11 April 2016
Terex Compact has launched six new mini excavators from 1.4 to 3.7 tonnes – the TC14-2, TC16-2, TC19-2, TC22-2, TC35-2 and TC37-2 models at Bauma, which it said would be followed by other models over the next two years.

The new minis are equipped with LUDV hydraulics (load-independent flow distribution), enabling power to be transferred to the functions as the operator demands.
For the precise control of attachment tools such as hammers or cutters, the second auxiliary circuit is operated with electrically proportional control, a standard feature offered on TC22-2 and larger models, and optional in the smaller models.
Terex also showcased its new TA9SP site dumper, which is said to provide new swivel tip functionality for a 9-tonne payload class machine as well as including a new powershift transmission, combined with auto-shift technology. The model will also highlight a patent pending stop-start technology feature, providing new benefits to machine ownership.
The TLB830 backhoe loader has been specifically designed with the rental marketplace in mind. Featuring a Tier 4 Final-compliant 56kW Deutz TCD 3.6 L4 engine for Europe, and a Tier 3 Perkins 1104 T3 70kW variant for South America and the rest of world, each model comes with synchro transmission, air conditioning and servo excavator controls as standard.
The TLB830 has been engineered to excel in digging, reaching, lifting and loading applications, said Terex. The additional option of bespoke accessory kits enables users to fully customise their machine tuning specification to meet exact application requirements.
Taking place in Munich, Germany, from 11 to 17 April, Bauma is the largest construction equipment exhibition in the world.
