Developed to increase productivity, the Terex TX760B tractor backhoe loader is practical for contractors with applications requiring the versatility of a wheel loader and the functionality of an excavator.

Weighing in at 15,151 lbs. (16,873 kg), the TX760B offers a maximum digging depth of 19 ft. 3 in. (5.9 m) and a standard lift capacity of 7,604 lbs. (3,449 kg). The 86-hp (64 kW) Perkins turbo-induction engine and powershift transmission provides power and clutch-less operation.

This machine comes standard with a front counter weight for greater fore and aft stability. The TX760B stabilizer legs feature lock-out valves in the circuit so they remain down during operation, providing better stability when operators are working 90 degrees of the side of the machine.

The Terex backhoe loader bucket linkage design allows operators to drive into a pile and roll back 45 degrees. This machine is able to dump at 57 degrees for greater fill capacity and better discharge.

While the front loader-end of the TX760B provides mechanical controls, the backhoe end features piloted controls. Piloted controls make this machine operate like an excavator. Its closed center, sharing control valve gives operators a smooth, multi-function performance while ensuring fine control for accurate trenching and grading applications.

The ergonomically designed joystick with adjustable armrests increases operator comfort and visibility. Because the controls are set to either side of the seat, the operator has an unobstructed view of the work area. Another visibility-enhancing feature is a joystick override switch, which allows operators to stand while operating the backhoe. This gives operators a clear view inside the trench. The joystick also includes a control pattern change valve that allows the operator to choose an SAE or ISO operating pattern — without leaving the cab.
