Terramac custom crawlers on display at the Utility Expo
Terramac is preparing for an exciting display at The Utility Expo, held September 28 - 30, 2021 at the Kentucky Exposition Center. Terramac will unveil its newest utility carrier model and exhibit its latest specialty units and technologies at booth E1329.
The all-new Terramac RT7U will make its debut at The Utility Expo. The RT7U is purpose-built for utility applications and capable of accommodating a wide array of support equipment. The RT7U will be on display with a Versalift VST-7500 aerial lift, which boasts a working height of 80 feet, and 47 feet of horizontal reach. This unique customization provides the height to tackle almost any size pole, the compactness to work in tight areas, and the ultimate versatility for either aerial material handling or personnel lifting.
Terramac's robust RT9U and heavy-duty RT14 will also be on display. The purpose-built RT9U will be configured with a Terex Commander 6060 digger derrick, providing contractors an all-in-one equipment solution for safely and efficiently constructing, maintaining, and restoring power. The Terramac RT14 will be customized with a 5200 cfm Supervac; this specialty straight frame unit is a powerful combination of a vacuum excavator and rubber track carrier that streamlines the process of locating underground utilities.
Terramac will also have its compact RT6 straight frame unit with a 2400 cfm vacuum excavator and John Deere engine on display at the Lobby B patio where hotel shuttle drop-off is located.
Terramac plans to showcase the customization capabilities of its purpose-built utility units at The Utility Expo. Compared to standard Terramac models, the utility carriers are built with a unique extended frame and various hydraulic pump drive configurations. This frame adjustment simplifies the mounting process to accommodate a variety of utility support equipment, including lineman winches, concrete mixers, service cranes, and more. Terramac crawler carriers can be utilized for traditional utility projects, as well as for renewable wind and solar energy generation applications.
Terramac will also highlight its units' innovative rubber track technology and low ground pressure, which enable crews to easily maneuver through adverse ground conditions and climb faster on steep and hilly terrain.
The Utility Expo will be Terramac's first tradeshow since being acquired by CK Power in January 2021.
