Terex Rolls Out New Compact Track Loader

The new R265T compact track loader features a 74-hp turbocharged Tier 4 final engine with variable flow hydraulics for powerful productivity and quick cycle times. The newest Terex GEN2 loader has a 2,650-lb rated operating capacity, narrow (70 inches) width and radial lift path. 

It's compact design lets it easily maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites to handle site prep, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Its purpose-built chassis is designed to be a heavy-duty machine within a compact package.

Compact track loaderswith a radial lift path excel at digging and grading applications and provide better operator visibility around the unit, which is particularly important when working around existing infrastructure. 

The loader comes standard with 18-in wide tracks and patented Posi-Track undercarriage technology with multiple levels of suspension that distributes the machine’s 9,180-lb operating weight down to only 3.6 psi of ground pressure. The low ground pressure prevents damage to the groundand provides extended track life. For ride comfort and traction, this loader’s undercarriage is suspended from the chassis of the machine by torsion axles. These torsion axles are independent, so there are multiple levels of suspension points connecting the chassis to the undercarriage. This design allows the bogie wheels on the Terex R265T compact track loader to flex, creating a smooth ride and taking away much of the vibration and shock associated with running over rocks, curbs and other rough terrain. Optional 20-in tracks are available for increased versatility in wet, muddy or snowy conditions.

GEN2 compact track loaders, including the new R265T model, utilize a proprietary all-rubber track, rather than a rigid track technology with steel embedded tracks mounted on an existing skid steer chassis. With this system, these 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. By utilizing composite materials rather than a steel skeleton, Terex tracks do not corrode or rust.
