New Tier 4F Compact Excavators From Terex

The new Terex TC16 and TC29 compact excavators use Tier 4 Final Mitsubishi engines, and offer improved fuel efficiency and productivity to improve return-on-investment. The new machines were designed to handle a wide range of job site applications.

The TC 29 weighs 6,450 lb, tachieves a maximum dig depth of 9 ft 10 in and a maximum reach of 16 ft 5 in. This unit’s bucket capacity ranges from 1.34 cu. ft.  to 3.88 cu.ft. Broad rubber tracks provide excellent traction and low ground pressure — 3.6 psi on the TC16 excavator and 3.9 psi on the TC29 excavator. The tread pattern is designed to provide a large surface area for ground contact and to improve ride comfort.

Both units are engineered with load independent flow distribution (LUDV), which means the available hydraulic flow on these excavator is proportionally distributed to provide hydraulic power when and where it is needed. All functions can be controlled simultaneously and independently from one another, and the system enables operators to precisely control all functions at every motor speed, independent of the load.

An auto-idling system helps improve fuel economy and lowers engine noise when the excavators are not carrying a load or in use. Their two-gear drive motor offers automatic speed changes for agile movement on jobsites.

The Knickmatik boom system lets operators work closely to walls or other existing infrastructure, or drive parallel to a trench while working on it. The offset boom design means these excavators can move to either side at full digging depth. Top-mounted neck cylinders provide additional clearance to load large, high-walled trucks and containers. End-position cushioning on both units’ hydraulic cylinders reduces vibrations and allows operators to work comfortably.
