Terex has introduced a new line of skid steer loaders — vertical lift path and radius lift path — to complement its line of compact equipment. With eight models ranging from 50 to 83 hp (37.3 to 61.9 kW), Terex skid steer loaders feature high ground clearances and rear angles of departure, high travel speeds, increased fuel capacities, strong tractive effort and mechanical-faced axle seals.

“Terex skid steer loaders are engineered to give operators more power and productivity during operation,” said Jamie Wright, product manager, Terex Construction Americas. “Terex skid steer loaders are ideal for rental, landscape, construction and agricultural applications.”

Terex offers four radial lift path models (TSR50, TSR60, TSR70 and TSR80), as well as four vertical lift path models (TSV50, TSV60, TSV70 and TSV80). Terex skid steer loaders offers 10.5 in. (26.7 cm) ground clearance and 29-degree rear angle of departure on medium-frame loaders (TSR50/60 and TSV50/60) and 26 degrees on large-frame loaders (TSR70/80 and TSV70/80). These features improve the ability of the machine to traverse soft, uneven terrain, making the workday more productive and less frustrating, according to Terex.

Terex offers 8,453 lbs. (3,834 kg) of tractive effort on the medium-frame models and 8,700 lbs. (3,946 kg) on the large-frame models.

The drive pumps and motors on these loaders are performance matched to provide operators with the optimum amount of hydraulic horsepower on every task. Terex loaders also are designed with load-sensing hydraulics to ensure that fuel and energy are not wasted on surplus hydraulic power, so operators can push material, dig, grade and drive through challenging jobsite conditions, yet conserve power when requirements are less demanding, according to Terex. For increased versatility, the loader arms on the Terex models are designed to easily accommodate over-the-tire steel tracks, and because these loaders run cool, they allow operators to work longer in hot, humid environments.

Terex offers an array of attachments for its skid steer loader line, including auger, backhoe, rotary broom, general purpose bucket, light-material bucket, multi-purpose bucket, dozer blade, pallet forks, power box rake, snow blade, snow blower, stump grinder, trencher, vibratory roller and the Loegering Eliminator rake. Each attachment comes standard with the necessary hydraulic lines and connectors or electric connections for a quick, easy fit.

Terex skid steer loaders are built to get loading, picking and carrying, grading, back dragging or snow removal jobs done faster and more efficiently, according to the company. For quick cycle times, a drive train with optional two-speed transmission propels Terex loaders up to 12 mph (19 km).

Terex loaders also offer increased fuel capacities, with 25-gal. (94.6 L) fuel tanks in the medium-frame loaders and 30-gal. (113.5 L) fuel tanks in the large-frame models, translating to longer operating times between refueling.

Productivity of the new Terex skid steer loaders also is enhanced by the ergonomic operator’s environment. The tower design on the loaders offers excellent visibility, while the sealed and pressurized cab on the new Terex loaders provides a clean operating environment. Open-style and enclosed cab operator stations also are available.

“Everything from the hydraulics to the balanced machine weight, ensures smooth operation, reduced vibrations and exceptional stability, contributing to improved operator comfort,” said Wright.

To keep operators fresh and in control, hydraulic joystick controls come as standard equipment on all Terex loader models, allowing for quick, agile manipulation of the machine’s bucket, loader and travel functions with minimal effort. The joystick controls feature built-in switches for auxiliary hydraulic and electric control of attachments — each model is pre-wired for quick, easy connection to attachments.

To combat unnecessary downtime and maintenance costs, mechanical-faced axle seals are standard in all Terex skid steer loaders. These seals greatly extend the life of the axle bearings by preventing the migration of material such as dust, sand and debris, according to Terex.

Terex skid steer loaders also feature a tilt-up ROPS to ensure quick, trouble-free service checks by making all daily service points easily accessible.
