Terramac has introduced the RT7R crawler carrier, the company’s most compact rotating unit, ideal for tight spaces that don’t require the payload of a larger unit. It can easily be loaded onto a trailer and hauled by line trucks from jobsite to jobsite.
Built with a rugged upper frame that rotates a full 360-degrees, the Terramac RT7R can carry and dump up to 14,000 lbs. of material at any position, even while driving. This functionality allows the RT7R to offload materials faster than a standard straight frame crawler carrier since the tracks do not need to be counter-rotated to drive another direction.
This new unit features a compact footprint of 17 feet, 3 inches by 8 feet, 1 inch, and boasts travel speeds up to 6.7 mph. The 24,080-lb. RT7R is powered by a 165-hp Cummins B4.5 performance series Tier 4 Final engine.
In addition to power and efficiency, the RT7R showcases Terramac’s rubber track technology. Flotation from the unit’s rubber tracks and a fully-loaded ground pressure of just 5.5psi allows the RT7R to travel lightly in adverse ground conditions, climb faster on rugged terrain, and reach remote areas while minimizing environmental damage and land restoration costs. The RT7R is ideal for work in tight spaces and environmentally sensitive areas, such as railroad track right of way access, rivers, and levees, as well as general earthmoving, site prep, and utility jobsites.
