TC16 and TC29 Compact Excavators


April 7, 2015 - Products


Terex’s TC16 and TC29 compact excavators can take on a variety of jobs including trenching, ground leveling, back-filling, grading, contouring, loading, and unloading. These models feature the Knickmatik boom system and Terex Fingertip controls and Tier 4 Final Mitsubishi diesel engines.

Weighing in at 3,800 lbs., the TC16 compact excavator offers a dig depth of 7 ft., 3 in. and a maximum reach of 12 ft., 10 in. It has a bucket capacity of up to 3.2 cubic feet. Weighing in at 6,450 lbs., the TC29 compact excavator achieves a maximum dig depth of 9 ft., 10 in. and a maximum reach of 16 ft., 5 in. This unit’s bucket capacity ranges from 1.34 to 3.88 cubic feet. The excavators come equipped with broad rubber tracks that provide excellent traction and low ground pressure — 3.6 psi on the TC16 excavator and 3.9 psi on the TC29 excavator.

Both compact excavators are also equipped with an auto-idling system to help improve fuel economy while lowering engine noise when the excavators are not in use. The Terex excavators’ top-mounted neck cylinders are designed to provide additional clearance for the operator to load large, high-walled trucks and containers while protecting them from damage. 

The excavators are equipped with pilot-operated controls that provide easy operation and changeable control patterns. Fingertip controls on a right joystick and actuation via rollers come standard and provide additional control for work attachments, including buckets, grabs, hydraulic hammers, cutting wheels, and augers.

Rethinking Utilization: Using the Energy in Parked EVs

By Facundo Tassara
Think the return on investment for electric vehicles (EVs) is too long? Vehicle-to-grid technology allows EVs to earn money while parked by utilizing their large batteries to provide energy storage services for buildings, utilities, and the grid. This extra money can reduce the total cost of ownership of EVs.

Size Matters

By Sherb Brown
There is little doubt that the folks out there with 5,000-10,000 vehicles have a good handle on how much they should be paying; for everything from bucket trucks to sedan floor mats. But some of our recent survey data shows that vast hordes of the fleet market are paying close to retail rates for a lot of products and services.
