The Customer Is King - continued
The five section, full hydraulic boom stretches 47 m for long reach applications, and the unit’s multi-stage outriggers are designed for a variety of positions.
Transporting and operating costs are reduced due to a width of 3 m.
Latest in Genie Access Platforms
Almost without exception, every manufacturer of access platforms that Contractors World International spoke to at Bauma 2016 said that the over-riding demand from customers was for greater reach with higher payload. And Terex Genie was no exception.
This is a big demand on engineers who are restricted in what is possible by the laws of physics. However, they seem to have achieved the ‘impossible’ with the new high-capacity performance and all terrain capabilities all in one unit.
The Genie Z-45/25XC boom lift is a variation on the company’s best selling rough terrain platform - the Genie Z-45/25J RT.
It has now been re-engineered to provide extra capacity combining up to 100 percent more lift capacity and weighing just 440 kg (967 lb) more than the standard model. New design features include a 1.83 m (6 ft) dual-entry platform and reinforced components to support additional weight in the platform.
It provides an unrestricted load capacity of 300 kg (660 lb) and a restricted capacity of 454 kg (1000 lb).
Power is via a standard Deutz D2011L03i 3 cylinder rated at 35.8 kW (48 hp) that can be driven at full height under maximum load.
World Premiere - Mini Excavators
Terex Compact launched six new mini excavators from 1.4 to 3.7 tonnes with new exterior design, operator focused workstation and modern excavator controls.
The new line up includes TC14-2, TC16-2, TC19-2, TC22-2, TC35-2 and TC37-2 mini excavators. Other models and variations will be introduced over the next 2 years.
Results of performance tests carried out by Terex show that the new models offer up to 20% more work performance on average based on faster trench digging times.
Their conventional design ensures that the machine remains stable even on rough terrains.
For the precise control of attachment tools such as hammers or cutters, the second auxiliary circuit is operated with electrically proportional control, a standard feature offered on TC22-2 and larger models, optional in the smaller models.
The new models in the 1.5t class offer a cabin with second door on the right for additional entry/exit –an advantage for road construction and good for direct communication and visibility to the right-hand side.
The new XL cab offers the space and comfort of a 3.5 t machine. Excellent visibility from the large glass surface offers a clear view of the attachment tool and working environment; the track below on the right is particularly easy to see.
The combination of intuitive control and safe working environment makes the machine user-friendly.
