Construction equipment: Compact track loader

Construction equipment: Featuring a 74-hp turbocharged Tier 4 final diesel engine with variable flow hydraulics for powerful productivity and quick cycle times, the new 2,650-lb rated operating capacity Terex® R265T compact track loader is the newest member of the Terex® Generation 2 (GEN2) loader line-up. Boasting a narrow machine width (70-in), the R265T radial lift path compact track loader can easily maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites, making it an ideal loader for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Its purpose-built chassis is designed to be a heavy-duty machine within a compact package.

Proving it has the power and productivity to get the job done, the R265T loader has 221 ft-lb of peak torque, a tipping load of 7,571 lb, a bucket breakout force of 5,800 lb and a lift height of 125 in, enabling it to get loading, picking and carrying, grading, back dragging or snow removal jobs done faster and more efficiently. Compact track loaders, like the R265T unit, engineered with a radial lift path — meaning the loader arms raise in an arc pattern — excel at digging and grading applications. Another benefit of the radial lift path configuration is the visibility around the unit it provides to operators, especially when working around existing infrastructure, such as homes and in backyards.

The Terex R265T compact track loader comes standard with 18-in wide tracks and patented Posi-Track™ undercarriage technology with multiple levels of suspension that distributes the machine’s 9,180-lb operating weight down to only 3.6 psi of ground pressure. The low ground pressure prevents damage to the ground below (e.g. turf) and provides extended track life. For exceptional ride comfort and traction, this loader’s undercarriage is suspended from the chassis of the machine by torsion axles. These torsion axles are independent, so there are multiple levels of suspension points connecting the chassis to the undercarriage. This design allows the bogie wheels on the Terex R265T compact track loader to flex, creating a smooth ride and taking away much of the vibration and shock associated with running over rocks, curbs and other rough terrain. This model is also available with optional 20-in tracks for increased versatility to keep operators working year-round, even in wet, muddy or snowy conditions.

GEN2 compact track loaders, including the new R265T model, utilize a proprietary all-rubber track, rather than a rigid track technology with steel embedded tracks mounted on an existing skid steer chassis. With this system, these compact track loaders to achieve more traction, higher flotation and better operating comfort so operators can make full use of the machine’s higher travel speeds. By utilizing composite materials rather than a steel skeleton, Terex tracks do not corrode or rust.
