Terramac, a manufacturer of rubber track crawler carriers, exhibited its latest specialty units and technologies at ICUEE 2019.

Terramac's most compact model yet, the RT6U designed for utility applications, was displayed with a Terex Commander 4047 digger derrick. This new specialty unit provides utility contractors an all-in-one equipment solution for safely and efficiently constructing, maintaining and restoring power.

The RT6U boasts a compact footprint of 25 ft. 8 in. by 8 ft. 2 in., which makes it ideal for jobs that are in tight spaces but don't require the payload of a larger unit. The RT6U also can be easily loaded onto a tag trailer and hauled by line trucks from job site to job site.

Terramac's heavy-duty RT14U crawler carrier equipped with a Terex RMX 75 aerial device also was exhibited at ICUEE 2019. This specialty utility model provides the ultimate versatility for either aerial material handling or personnel lifting. The RT14U accommodates taller lifting devices and heavyweight support equipment with superior durability, while also offering more torque and power than other crawler carriers in its class. This robust unit is especially useful for utility job sites that are located in remote areas where it is difficult for larger, wheeled machinery to access.

Terramac showcased the customization capabilities of its utility units. Compared to standard Terramac models, the new utility carriers are built with a unique extended frame and hydraulic mount system. This frame adjustment simplifies the mounting process to accommodate a variety of utility support equipment, including: lineman winches, vacuum excavators, boom lifts, concrete mixers and service cranes. Terramac also highlighted the units' innovative rubber track technology and low ground pressure, which enable utility crews to easily maneuver through adverse ground conditions and climb faster on steep and hilly terrain, according to the manufacturer.
