The Terex PS6000 site dumper increases cycle times for contractors working in any terrain. Developed to increase on-site productivity with its four-wheel drive, power swivel articulating capabilities the PS6000 is a cost-effective solution to move material around the job site more efficiently, according to the manufacturer.

From cramped construction sites and rough terrain to routine utility, landscaping, agricultural and rental applications, the Terex PS6000 is designed to give the operator increased visibility for moving any material — dirt, clay, sand, stone, concrete, fertilizer and more.

The power swivel (PS) models, including the PS6000, offer added versatility by allowing loads to be rotated 180 degrees from side to side and tipped to accurately place a load. This added benefit makes the PS6000 practical for backfilling of trenches as well as providing more loading and dumping options when working in confined spaces. The PS6000 can be performance-matched with compact excavators, full-size excavators, backhoes and wheel loaders for maximum job-site utilization and productivity.

Using a four-speed powershift transmission with four speeds forward and four speeds reverse, the PS6000 has a travel speed of 17 mph (27 kmh). It offers a turning radius of 18 ft. 8 in. (5.7 m), a heap capacity of 4.6 cu. yd. (3.5 cu m) and a payload capacity of 13,228 lbs. (6,000 kg).

The Perkins 1004-4 diesel engine is rated at 83 hp (62 kW) at 2,200 rpm and meets all Tier II emission requirements.

The PS6000 offers enhanced job-site performance due to its 15 in. (38 cm) high ground clearance, and 405/70x20 14PR flotation tires.
