54 | www.cedmag.com | Construction Equipment Distribution | October 2014 New & Improved The New Terex Generation 2 Loaders Boast More than 100 Upgrades Terex's new line of skid steer loaders and compact track loaders are specifically designed for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscap- ing, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Based on proven designs and engineering, the new Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) load- ers feature more than 100 enhance- ments from the previous models and are available in radial and vertical lift-path patterns with rated operating capacities (ROC) ranging from 665 to 3,600 pounds. Terex GEN2 loader lines are aimed at increasing machine performance through additional ROC and loader breakout forces, while increasing the machine's durability and reliability in the field, which reduces the cost of ownership during the life of the loader. According to the company, the power, engine horsepower, bucket breakout force and axle torque of Terex GEN2 loaders contribute to these machines' superior lift capability and pushing force – enabling the loaders to handle heavier loads with faster cycle times than competitive brands. All Terex GEN2 models are equipped with Tier 4 Final engines for increased productivity at a lower operating cost. Other improvements include an improved quick-attach pin profile, a cylinder seal package that includes three additional sealing surfaces to eliminate potential leakage, as well as wear bands were added to reduce side load strain. GEN2 models also include new high-torque, stainless-steel clamps, upgraded hydraulic couplers, one million cycle hoses on all high- pressure applications, new standard and heavy-duty "W" style crimps on loader and drive hoses and improved O-ring installation processes. All Terex GEN2 compact track loaders utilize the company's popular, patented Posi-Track suspended undercarriage technology and proprietary all-rubber track system. The skid steer loaders continue to boast 10-inches of ground clearance, 28-degree rear angle of departure and the fastest top speeds in their class – up to 12 mph.
