Terex introduces its new line of skid steer loaders and compact track loaders specifically designed for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Based on proven designs and engineering, the new Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loaders feature more than 100 enhancements from the previous models and are available in radial and vertical lift-path patterns with rated operating capacities (ROC) ranging from 665 – 3,600 lb. These features combine to offer operators powerful machine productivity on every jobsite and equipment owners a high return on investment.
All Terex GEN2 models are equipped with Tier 4 Final engines for increased productivity at a lower operating cost. The GEN2 loaders come equipped with Perkins EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) diesel engines with a DPF exhaust system. EGR technology is well suited for lower horsepower engines operating in high-duty applications, and Terex GEN2 loaders, which operate in high-duty cycle environments, will generate enough heat during operation to clear the DPF through passive regeneration. Terex GEN2 skid steer loaders offer increased fuel capacities, which translates to longer operating times between refueling.
Other improvements incorporated into the GEN2 line were made based on customer feedback, distributor feedback and warranty data over the last six years. These improvements include an improved quick-attach pin profile, a cylinder seal package that includes three additional sealing surfaces to eliminate potential leakage, as well as wear bands were added to reduce side load strain. GEN2 models also include new high-torque, stainless-steel clamps, upgraded hydraulic couplers, one million cycle hoses on all high-pressure applications, new standard and heavy-duty “W” style crimps on loader and drive hoses and improved O-ring installation processes.
All Terex GEN2 compact track loaders utilize the company’s popular, patented Posi-Track suspended undercarriage technology and proprietary all-rubber track system. With this system, Terex GEN2 compact track loaders to achieve more traction, higher flotation and better operating comfort so operators can make full use of the machine’s higher travel speeds. All Terex GEN2 skid steer loaders continue to boast 10-in of ground clearance, 28° rear angle of departure and the fastest top speeds in their class — up to 12 mph, which improves these machines’ ability to traverse soft, uneven terrain to make the workday more productive and less frustrating for operators.
