Terramite

A brand new high school is taking shape on the site of a former hospital in Cumberland, Md., which is located in Allegany County in the western part of the state. Work began on the Allegany High School project on May 24, 2016, and completion is expected by May 25, 2018.

The Terramite T5C is rugged and powerful enough to tackle many “big machine” jobs such as septic tank installations, water, sewer and gas lines, loading, spreading and much more. Features include: • Easily interchangeable buckets ranging in width from 8 to 36 in.

The Terramite T9 compact tractor loader backhoe is the larger version of the T5C. This machine is bigger and more powerful than the T5C, but it still works in areas inaccessible to big machines. It can be towed with a 3/4 ton pickup truck. The backhoe digs 10 ft.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) A company that manufactures construction equipment has laid off an unspecified number of workers at its plant in Cross Lanes, officials said this week. Layoffs at Terramite Corp. come one month after U.S. Commerce Secretary Don Evans praised the plant as a homegrown success story.

Terramite has released its T5C backhoe. The T5C backhoe buckets are quick attach and easily changed. They range in size from 20 to 97 centimeters (8 to 38 in.) and have 1.3-centimeter (.5 in.) high carbon cutting edges with cast steel replacement teeth.

The Terramite T9 compact tractor loader backhoe is the larger version of the company’s T5C. This machine is bigger and more powerful than the T5C, but it still works in areas inaccessible to big machines. The backhoe digs a deep 3 meters (10 ft.) and has 3.8-centimeter (1.5 in.) pins with bushings and 7.6-centimeter (3 in.) cylinders for heavy-duty work.

Marty Kimbrough, the general manager for At-Once Rental & Supply in Lancaster, TX, knows a good thing when he sees one. So when the opportunity came up recently to land the local franchise for Terramite Corporation’s brand of compact tractor loader backhoes, he grabbed at it. So far, Kimbrough has seen a long line of plumbers, electricians, landscapers, and local homeowners coming in to do a double take, and end up driving off with one of his Terramite backhoes.
