Terex introduces its newest compact track loader models: the PT-100G and PT-100G Forestry. The original PT-100 and PT-100 Forestry models are among Terex best-selling models for construction and utility contractors, landscapers, landowners and vegetation management specialists. The company goal with the new PT-100G models was to keep the attributes that have made the previous machines so popular with customers, while enhancing features to exceed the market’s expectations.
The largest compact track loaders in the Terex lineup, these new models offer operators a 14.6% increase in tractive effort in low gear for more pushing power, a 32% increase in horsepower to the attachment, a redesigned loader arm to achieve greater reach and 13% more bucket breakout force over their predecessors. These models boast a class-leading 99.9-hp engine and 310 lb-ft of torque. These newest Terex loaders have an operating weight of 11,400 lb, a tipping load of 8,000 lb — with a 4,000 lb operating capacity at 50% tipping load capacity — and a lift height of 125 in.
With a narrow 6-ft profile and a low 14-3/4 in ground clearance, the new Terex PT-100G and PT-100G Forestry loaders are designed to maximize work in limited access areas. And with a low 4.0-psi ground pressure, these machines can easily work on soft or sensitive surfaces with minimal damage or impact. The new PT-100G models include the Terex patented Posi-Track undercarriage technology and suspension for the smoothest ride available in the industry. While these loaders come standard with general-purpose rubber tracks, the Terex Turf tracks are options for both these units.
New PT-100G Forestry model offers a comprehensive set of integrated standard features, including a FOPS Level 2 cab and 20-in tracks, as well as a complete forestry guarding package that includes a heavy-duty polycarbonate door with a wiper, steel hood, rear brush guard and limb-risers. Both the PT-100G and PT-100G Forestry loaders are equipped with electronic-over-hydraulic pilot-operated joystick controls and a comfortable operator station for easy operation.
