The Terex zero tail swing TC37 crawler excavator meets the demand for a compact machine in applications where space is a premium. Designed to turn 360 degrees within the width of its tracks, the TC37 zero tail swing excavator is at home in confined and restricted areas. Ideal for utility contractors, this mini allows operators to get up close and personal in places where conventional excavators can’t fit.

“If you’re working in an alley, next to a building, or on a street, where traffic is an issue, you can be certain that the rear of the TC37 isn’t going to swing out into traffic or into a wall,” said Jamie Wright, product manager, Terex Construction Americas. “Plus, the off-set boom allows operators an unobstructed view of the task at hand, increasing visibility at every turn.”

Weighing in at 7,870 lbs. (3,570 kg), the TC37 offers a maximum digging depth of 10 ft. 6 in. (3.2 m) and a reach of 18 ft. 1 in. (5.5 m). The 30 hp Mitsubishi 4-cylinder diesel engine and hydrostatic drive delivers the speed and power needed to dig, load, lift and place material like the big boys, according to the manufacturer.

The cylinders are on the back side of the boom — not on the front of the machine like you find on other models. According to Wright, this reduces damage and increases uptime.

“All of our cylinders are mounted with spherical, self-lining bearings so that less stress is transmitted to the pins or bushings.”

Add load-sensing hydraulics with variable displacement piston pumps and closed center, flow compensating valves and you have a high efficiency, low fuel consumption operation. Plus, the TC37 features an optional quick change hitch that allows a wide range of optional attachments and accessories to be used for even greater versatility.

Spacious cabs with exceptional visibility in all directions keep operators focused and productive. The cab features a fabric-covered hydraulically cushioned driver’s seat that adjusts to the operator’s height, weight and length, plus height-adjustable armrests. Two power touch, pilot operated four-way control levers make for nearly effortless operation. And the control pattern changer (standard) is out in the open and doesn’t require a wrench to make adjustments.
