New Terex TLB840R Backhoe Loader
The Terex TLB840R backhoe loader is designed to give rental business owners a more immediate return on investment without sacrificing performance and or quality.
The backhoe loader is equipped with a powerful 74-hp, Tier 4 final 4-cyclinder Deutz electronic fuel injection diesel engine, a 4-speed synchro shuttle transmission and a robust hydraulic system to excel at digging, reaching, lifting and loading tasks.
The engine, transmission, and hydraulic systems have all been designed for easy maintenance by rental company technicians and mechanics.
In the past when we’ve launched new products, they have been primarily designed with owner/operators and our distribution base in mind — we factored in features and benefits that we thought were important for rental. But, with the TLB840R, we took a good hard look at the needs of our rental customers and configured this backhoe loader specifically for the market,
says Vice President and General Manager of Terex Construction Americas and Global Aftermarket, Gary Dennis.
What the rental market really needed was a reliable unit, that is cost-effective to maintain, with a competitive acquisition cost, easy to operate and delivers a superior return on invested capital to the rental houses.
Within 12 months of identifying these needs, Terex has launched the TLB840R backhoe loader — a unit specifically designed and priced for the rental industry.
With a 9,441 lbf bucket breakout force, a loader lift capacity of 7,291 lbf and bucket capacity of 1.0 yd3, this new Terex backhoe loader offers high-capacity production to tackle any project for which a customer needs a backhoe.
Terex has designed this unit to give operators unrestricted visibility to the bucket edge, which is ideal in grading applications. The curved boom design and up to 13-ft 5-in loading height (with an extendable stick) of the new backhoe loader offers operators excellent clearance to reach up and over obstacles, as well as the ability to load closer into trucks for greater productivity.
This rental-ready backhoe loader comes standard with 4-wheel drive, tilt steering wheel, suspension seat and selectable pattern change pilot controls. It can be ordered with either a canopy or fully enclosed cab that includes heat and A/C, as well as a choice of a standard or extendable dipperstick.
All Terex TLB840R backhoe loaders are equipped with a fully tilting hood for easy access to all service points, including the engine, oil cooler, radiator and air cleaner.
