Terex Construction has unveiled its new Terex® TLB850 backhoe loader. The cost effective TLB850 is packed with features and additions to provide owner-operators with high performance, comfort and ease of use.
Built on over 55 years’ of backhoe expertise, the new model is based on Terex’s TLB840, which has proved popular in 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, delivering outstanding performance at a highly affordable price.
With a market-leading closed centre hydraulic circuit, which allows hydraulic oil to by-pass the control valves in the neutral position, the TLB850 consumes minimal power and reduces lever effort for the operator. What’s more, 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 model include an optional hydraulically-operated gear shift transmission (Servo power synchro), a 4-speed gearbox and a Stage IIIB/ Tier 4i compliant engine – making the TLB850 a perfect entry-level system to comply with regulated markets.
Reducing exhaust particulate emissions by up to 90%, the Stage IIIB/ T4i technology used in the Terex TLB850 backhoe boosts performance at a lower operating cost. With a 6% reduction in fuel consumption, additional 50Nm torque and auto engine idle as standard, the environmentally friendly engine design provides greater power and durability with lower engine effort.
Terex 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.
“Developed using insight from owner-operators and embracing the latest processes, the TLB 850 builds on successes of the previous TLB840 designed to enhance user productivity and efficiency, as well as meeting the highest industry demands.
“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.
“We’re confident that the TLB850’s excellent pushing power, breakout forces and comfortable cab will delight users; who take great pride in their backhoe and expect the highest possible performance. What’s more, with its Stage IIIB/ Tier 4i compliant engine, it meets international emissions regulations as well – making it a great machine for owner-operators, construction firms and hire companies alike.
