New Terex Generation 2 Loaders Boast More Than 100 Upgrades, Build On Popular Features
Terex introduced its new line of skid steer loaders and compact track loaders specifically designed for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Based on proven designs and engineering, the new Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loaders feature more than 100 enhancements from the previous models and are available in radial and vertical lift-path patterns with rated operating capacities (ROC) ranging from 665 to 3,600 pounds. These features combine to offer operators powerful machine productivity on every jobsite and equipment owners a high return on investment.
As part of the company’s continuous improvement methodology, many of the enhancements to the Terex GEN2 loader lines are aimed at increasing machine performance through additional ROC and loader breakout forces, while increasing durability and reliability in the field, which reduces the cost of ownership during the life of the loader.
All Terex GEN2 models are equipped with Tier 4 Final engines for increased productivity at a lower operating cost. Other improvements incorporated into the GEN2 line were made based on customer feedback, distributor feedback and warranty data from the last six years. These include an improved quick-attach pin profile, a cylinder seal package that includes three additional sealing surfaces to eliminate potential leakage, as well as the addition of wear bands to reduce side load strain. GEN2 models also include new high-torque, stainless-steel clamps, upgraded hydraulic couplers, one million cycle hoses on all high-pressure applications, new standard and heavy-duty “W” style crimps on loader and drive hoses, and improved O-ring installation processes.
Carrying over from Terex’ predecessor loader models, all Terex GEN2 compact track loaders utilize the company’s patented Posi-Track suspended undercarriage technology and proprietary all-rubber track system. With this system, Terex GEN2 compact track loaders achieve more traction, higher flotation and better operating comfort so operators can make full use of the machine’s higher travel speeds.
