“Shafer Equipment’s legacy of serving their customers’ needs is closely aligned with Terramac’s, so when the opportunity presented itself in 2013 to expand our brand in West Virginia with a well-respected equipment dealership, we seized it,” said Mike Crimaldi, CEO of Terramac LLC. “We’ve established a very successful relationship with Shafer Equipment, as evidenced by their rapidly growing fleet of RT9 crawler carriers.”

“We are committed to serving our customers through innovations and continuous improvements, and that commitment is evident in our partnership with Terramac,” said Barry Casto, general manager, Shafer Equipment. “Terramac has proven to be an excellent brand to represent, with a solid reputation for reliability, durability and performance. Expanding our current fleet of Terramac RT9 crawler carriers allows us to continue to accommodate projects of all sizes.”

With an operating weight of 26,000 lbs. (11,794 kg) and a maximum carrying capacity of 18,000 lbs. (8,165 kg), the Terramac RT9 is the largest mid-sized rubber track carrier that does not require special oversize permitting to transport the machine.
