Terex Equipment has recently upgraded its existing TLB series of backhoe loaders. The upgrades are now available on TLB 740 (76 hp) and TLB 844 (90 hp) models. The key changes over the existing model include re-designed swing and mast assembly and ergonomically designed cab interiors and overall styling. Heavy duty slew cylinders fitted on the swing mast assembly generates up to 18 per cent higher torque for side swing movement, enabling smooth backhoe operations in demanding situations while handling higher payload. Also, a reduction in the cycle time or quicker return to dig position gives operators a chance to improve productivity. The cabin is now fitted with suspension type operator seat, enhancing operator comfort reducing fatigue over long working hours. An FM radio set with speakers and mobile charging point have been included as standard fitment.
These changes are primarily focused on the human element of the machine's operations and are designed to increase productivity, says Rajesh Shrivastava, General Manager Marketing, Terex India.
