Company builds on the success of the TLB840 model to deliver new backhoe potential
COVENTRY-based Terex Construction have unveiled their new Terex TLB850 backhoe loader, which they describe as a cost-effective machine packed with features and additions to provide owner-operators with high performance, comfort and ease of use.
Built on more than 55 years’ of backhoe expertise, the new model is based on Terex’s TLB840 backhoe, which has proved popular on construction sites worldwide, thanks to its efficiency, flexibility and reliability.
Building on this success, the TLB850 features a 94hp, high-performance, charge air-cooled engine and closed-centre hydraulic circuit, which allows hydraulic oil to by-pass the control valves in the neutral position and reduces lever effort for the operator.
Moreover, with smooth multi-functional operation of boom, dipper, extender and bucket, the system allows fine control and smooth operation for quick, easy and accurate grading and levelling.
Other features of the new model include an optional hydraulically operated gear-shift transmission, a four-speed gearbox and a Stage IIIB/Tier 4i-compliant engine.
Reducing exhaust particulate emissions by up to 90%, the Stage IIIB/T4i technology boosts performance at a lower operating cost. With a 6% reduction in fuel consumption, an additional 50Nm of torque and auto engine idle as standard, the environmentally friendly engine has been designed to provide greater power and durability with lower engine effort.
Terex’s global product manager for backhoe loaders, Jon Beckley, commented: ‘We know our customers and the challenges they face. That’s why we’ve invested in developing the TLB850 – the latest addition to our fit-for-purpose range of backhoe loaders.
‘From increased torque and smooth hydraulics to greater dig depth and backhoe reach, our new model is perfect for those looking for a reliable entry-level backhoe with outstanding performance.’
