The 71-hp Terex PT-75 compact track loader is the newest member of the Terex line of interim-Tier 4 compliant compact construction equipment. With a narrow machine width of 70 inches, the PT-75 track loader can easily maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites.
Featuring a 4-cyclinder, turbocharged Perkins 804C-33T diesel engine, the PT-75 has 178.5 lbs. of peak torque, a tipping load of 6,200 lbs., and a lift height of 125 inches. It is available with an optional two-speed hydrostatic drive system that allows operators to select low for maximum torque or high for faster travel speeds up to 10.5 mph.
The compact track loader comes standard with 18-inch wide tracks and Posi-Track undercarriage technology with multiple levels of suspension that distributes the machine’s 8,972-lb. operating weight down to only 3.5 psi of ground pressure. The low ground pressure prevents damage to the ground below and provides extended track life.
For ride comfort and traction, the undercarriage is suspended from the chassis of the machine by torsion axles. The design allows the bogie wheels on the PT-75 to flex, creating a smooth ride and with minimal vibration and shock. It is also available with optional 20-inch tracks for increased versatility year-round.
The new PT-75 loader is designed with front-mounted, quick-connect hydraulic fittings and an electronic connector for control of attachments, enabling it to use industry-standard attachments. Additionally, it is equipped with a comfortable operator station and pilot-operated joystick controls to reduce operation fatigue and increase production.
All Terex compact track loaders, including the new PT-75 model, utilize a proprietary all-rubber track with steel embedded tracks mounted on an existing skid steer chassis. It enables Terex compact track loaders to produce greater efficiencies in operation and speed because of the lighter weight, according to the company.
