THE MOST powerful compact track loader in the industry has just received a total redesign.
Available in standard and forestry versions, the Terex PT-100G improves upon the success of the Terex/ASV PT-100 Posi-Track loader, delivering substantial gains in performance and operator comfort.
The largest model in the Terex Posi-Track line-up, the new PT- 100G, offers a 15-per cent increase in tractive effort in low gear for greater pushing power, a 32-per cent increase in hydraulic horsepower to the attachment, a redesigned loader arm to achieve greater reach, and 13 per cent more bucket breakout force over its predecessors.
The PT-100G also boasts a powerful 4.4-litre engine that makes a classleading 75kW (100hp) and 420Nm, once again the highest in the compact track loader sector.
The unit has an operating weight of 5,171kg and a safe working load of 1,814kg at 50 per cent of tipping capacity.
The new PT-100G is built on the most-advanced Terex Posi- Track undercarriage technology to date, featuring multi-level active suspension technology for the smoothest ride in any compact track loader.
With the widest tracks in the industry (508mm) and only 4.5psi of ground pressure, the PT-100G offers increased traction, higher flotation in all ground conditions and improved track life.
An open centre-rail design featuring full metal face sealed wheel bearings means this Posi-Track undercarriage also delivers lower owning and operating costs. Plus it is easy to clean and maintain.
In addition, given the machine's relatively narrow 1,828mm width and impressive ground clearance of 375mm, the new Terex PT-100G loader is not only designed to work on sensitive surfaces but it excels in limited-access areas as well.
The PT-100G Forestry compact track loader is outfitted for demanding brush-cutting and landclearing applications.
With a sealed and pressurised cabin and standard heavy-duty guarding from top to bottom, this machine is built for the bush.
The rugged new PT-100G Forestry model offers a comprehensive set of integrated standard features, including a FOPS Level 2 cab as well as a complete forestry guarding package that includes a heavy-duty polycarbonate door, rear brush guard and limb-risers.
Also standard is a screened engine pre-cleaner and heavyduty skid plates that are hinged so operators can easily get in to clean out debris.
In both versions, the PT-100G raises the bar for hydraulic power with the most capable high-flow system available on any skid-steer or compact track loader in the industry.
With a load-sensing high-flow auxiliary hydraulic capability of 170l/ pm at 3,800psi, the PT-100G is ideal for running demanding attachments such as mulchers or profilers.
In addition, the PT-100G comes equipped with a high-performance cooling system featuring an over-sized oil cooler, dedicated large-diameter high-flow lines and an automatic reversible fan (on the forestry version) to maximise cooling efficiency.
