Southaven, Miss. – Terex introduces the first in its new line of interim Tier 4 compliant compact construction equipment with the PT-110G and PT-110G Forestry compact track loaders. Featuring electronic, four-cyclinder, turbo-powered Perkins iT4 diesel engines, the PT-110G compact track loaders boast 332 ft-lb of peak torque at 1,400 rpm, 45 gpm of hydraulic flow and a two-speed transmission that allows travel speeds up to 10 mph.
The 110-hp PT-110G loader has an operating weight of 11,100 lb, a tipping load of 7,600 lb - with a 3,800 lb operating capacity at 50-percent tipping load capacity - and a lift height of 125 in. The 111-hp PT-110G Forestry loader has an operating weight of 12,100 lb, a tipping load of 8,600 lb - with a 4,300 lb operating capacity at 50-percent tipping load capacity - and a lift height of 125 in. These loaders boast productivity with a load-sensing, low-flow auxiliary hydraulics from 0-20 gal/min, high-flow auxiliary hydraulic capability of 45 gal/min @ 3,800 psi and 98.7 hydraulic horsepower. The PT-110G Forestry model meets British Columbia logging standards BC WCB G608.
“The new Terex PT-110G compact track loaders offer operators higher peak engine torque, the highest hydraulic flow and top travel speeds in the large-frame size class,” says Jamie Wright, product manager, Terex Construction. “A few new features include a diesel particulate filter and after-cooled iT4-compliant engine for improved performance, a hydraulic fan cooling system for efficient cooling and more production, as well as an open design for ease of access to all critical components to enhance serviceability.”
For better cooling capabilities at lower engine speeds and better attachment recovery, the cooling system on the Terex PT-110G models is designed with a tilt-out radiator, large-capacity heat exchanger and a hydraulic reversing fan that only draws 10 hp from the engine, gaining more power for operation of the attachment and loader drive system. The quiet-operating, 230-2,600 rpm variable speed fan can push 11,000-14,000 cfm of air and allows operators to trigger it at set intervals to keep the cooling system running at peak performance.
Boasting a narrow 6-ft profile, 14.8-in ground clearance and 4.3-psi ground pressure, the Terex PT-110G compact track loaders are designed to work well in limited access areas, as well as on soft or sensitive surfaces, with minimal damage or impact. These units are engineered with the Terex patented Posi-Track undercarriage technology and multi-level suspension, and are engineered with 48 contact points on the ground for excellent traction and high flotation in all ground conditions.
