Terex PT-75 Is a Heavy-Duty Machine in a Compact Package

The PT-75 has 178.5 ft.-lb. of peak torque, a tipping load of 6,200 lb. (2,812 kg) — with a 3,100 lb. (1,406 kg) operating capacity at 50 percent tipping load capacity — and a lift height of 125 in. (317.5 cm).

The PT-75 has 178.5 ft.-lb. of peak torque, a tipping load of 6,200 lb. (2,812 kg) — with a 3,100 lb. (1,406 kg) operating capacity at 50 percent tipping load capacity — and a lift height of 125 in. (317.5 cm).

Featuring a 4-cylinder, turbocharged Perkins 804C-33T diesel engine, the new 71-hp (52.9 kW) Terex PT-75 compact track loader is the newest member of the Terex line of Tier IV-interim compliant compact construction equipment. Boasting a narrow machine width (70-in. [178 cm]), the PT-75 track loader can maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites, making it an ideal loader for landscapers and general contractors. Its purpose-built chassis is designed to be a heavy-duty machine within a compact package, according to the manufacturer.

The PT-75 has 178.5 ft.-lb. of peak torque, a tipping load of 6,200 lb. (2,812 kg) — with a 3,100 lb. (1,406 kg) operating capacity at 50 percent tipping load capacity — and a lift height of 125 in. (317.5 cm). This loader also is equipped with powerful load-sensing, low-flow auxiliary hydraulics from 0 to 17.4 gpm (0 to 65.8 Lpm), high-flow auxiliary hydraulic capability of 30 gpm (113.5 Lpm) @ 3,000 psi. This new Terex compact track loader is available with an optional two-speed hydrostatic drive system that allows operators to select low for maximum torque or high for faster travel speeds up to 10.5 mph (16.9 kmh).

The Terex PT-75 compact track loader, which is Tier IV compliant, comes standard with 18-in. (45.7 cm) wide tracks and Posi-Track undercarriage technology with multiple levels of suspension that distributes the machine’s 8,972-lb. (4,069 kg) operating weight down to only 3.5 psi of ground pressure. The low ground pressure prevents damage to the ground below (e.g.


turf) and provides extended track life.

For ride comfort and traction, this loader’s undercarriage is suspended from the chassis of the machine by torsion axles. These torsion axles are independent, so there are multiple levels of suspension points connecting the chassis to the undercarriage. This design allows the bogie wheels on the PT-75 to flex, creating a smooth ride and taking away much of the vibration and shock associated with running over rocks, curbs and other rough terrain. This model also is available with optional 20-in. (51 cm) tracks for increased versatility to keep operators working year-round, even in wet, muddy or snowy conditions, according to the manufacturer.

All Terex compact track loaders, including the new PT-75 model, utilize a proprietary all-rubber track, rather than a rigid track technology with steel embedded tracks mounted on an existing skid steer chassis. This enables Terex compact track loaders to produce greater efficiencies in operation and speed because of their lighter weight. And by utilizing composite materials rather than a steel skeleton, Terex tracks do not corrode or rust.

The new PT-75 loader is designed with front-mounted, quick-connect hydraulic fittings and an electronic connector for control of attachments, enabling it to use industry-standard attachments. This Terex loader is equipped with a comfortable operator station and pilot-operated joystick controls to reduce operation fatigue and increase production.
