Terramac® Launches a 360° Rotating RT7R Crawler Carrier
Terramac introduced the innovative RT7R at CONEXPO-CON/AGG as the company’s most compact rotating unit.
“The 2 biggest features that set the RT7R apart are its compact size and unique rotational functionality,” says Matt Slater, vice president of sales and marketing at Terramac. “The RT7R is an excellent solution for jobs that are in tight spaces but don’t require the payload of a larger unit. And because it is small and compact, the RT7R can be easily loaded onto a tag trailer and hauled by line trucks from jobsite to jobsite.”
Built with a rugged upper frame that rotates a full 360°, the Terramac RT7R can carry and dump up to 6,350 kg of material at any position, even while driving. This unique 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.
The Terramac RT7R is built to be nimble while providing the power needed to accomplish the task at hand. This new unit features a compact footprint and boasts travel speeds up to 10,8 km/h, ensuring quick cycle times to keep productivity levels on point. The 10,922 kg RT7R is powered by a 165 hp Cummins B4.5 Tier 4 final engine, enabling it to boost jobsite productivity while remaining highly fuel efficient, regardless of the application.
In addition, the RT7R features Terramac’s rubber track technology. Flotation from the unit’s rubber tracks 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 railroad track right of way access, rivers and levees, as well as general earthmoving, site prep and utility jobsites. Terramac currently offers a heavy-duty rock bed on the RT7R to maximize hauling efficiency for moving dirt, brush or rugged materials such as rip rap.
