TLB840 Backhoe Loader


April 16, 2013 - Equipment

Powered by an electronic, interim Tier 4 Perkins 1204E-E44TA engine and an optional 4-speed servo power synchro transmission with automatic shifting, the 94-hp Terex TLB840 backhoe loader is now available in North America. The machine can be used for digging, reaching, lifting, and loading applications.

The Tier 4i-compliant engine on the TLB840 is designed with EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) technology, which is well-suited for lower horsepower engines operating in high-duty applications. EGR engines incorporate diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) systems and sometimes diesel particulate filters (DPF) to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) and particulate matter exhaust emissions. The new Perkins Stage III B/Tier 4i EGR engines, like the one in the Terex TLB840, include a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and allow auto-idle to be incorporated in the machine. "The Perkins DPF has a 10,000-hour service life, so maintenance needs are reduced,” said Jon Beckley, Terex global product manager for backhoe loaders. “This backhoe loader does not require diesel exhaust fluid, also known as AdBlue, or forced regeneration.”

The curved boom design on the TLB840 offers operators greater clearance to reach over obstacles and the ability to load closer into trucks for greater productivity. The machine has a dig depth of 14feet, 9 inches (extended to 18 feet, 1 inch) and a reach up of 18 feet, 9 inches (extended 21 feet, 11 inches). For high-productivity trenching, the backhoe loader delivers 7,958 pound-force (lbf) dipper tearout and 11,892 lbf bucket tearout forces.

The backhoe loader has a 10,485 lbf bucket breakout force, a loader lift capacity of 7,291 lbf, and bucket capacity of 1.32 cubic yards. With “return to dig” feature at the press of a button, the Tier 4i TLB840 reduces cycle times and provides quick loading capability, according to the company. The hydro mechanical self-leveling feature on the TLB840 enables the operator to avoid spillage and allows for load retention at full height. The hydraulic unload button controls the loader’s lift speed, as well as boosts the machine’s pushing performance.
