Southaven, Miss. (March 11, 2008) Responding to market demand, Terex Construction introduces the new TL210 compact wheel loader to the North American market. The design of the new Terex® TL210 has similar features and characteristics to the company™s popular TL260 compact wheel loader, including a spacious operating cab, a heavy-duty chassis and the Terex® cooling system with reversible fan. This new wheel loader also boasts Tier III engine compliance, modified toolcarrier linkage, and powerful operation.
With a 162 hp quiet, low-vibration Cummins diesel engine, the TL210 meets the latest Tier III / COM III emission standards. For the first time in the Terex® mid-sized wheel loader range, the power transmission in the hydrostatic drive unit of the TL210 is carried out via a hydrotransmatic transmission with two regulating motors and a pump. In the entire speed range between 0 – 25 mph (0 40 km/h), the traction force and speed are optimized automatically and without interruption. The temperature efficiency of the load-limit controlled drive unit is well-adjusted and optimized.
The loading system on the new TL210 wheel loader is equipped with Terex® modified toolcarrier linkage. This combines the advantages of Z kinematics ” powerful breakout force, bucket reaction force and unloading time ” with the precise parallel control of the parallel kinematics in the bucket and fork lift attachment, across the entire movement range. The lifting force on the ground is 27,740 lbs. (123.4 KN) and the breakout force of the bucket cutting edge achieves a considerable 23,830 lbs. (106 KN).
The discharge height on the Terex® TL210 of 9™ 11 (3,010 mm) at an angle of 45 degrees is a significant advantage for applications in recycling plants, mixing plants, timber processing, paper plants and the agriculture industry. The 8™ 2 (2500 mm) wide, 10™ 8 (3,260 mm) high TL210 compact wheel loader moves a payload of 8,699 lbs. (3,945 kg) direct mounted with a 2.75 yd³ (2.1 m³) bucket. Payload over the entire lift and steering range for forks is 9,921 lbs. (4,500 kg).
The radiator system on the TL210 represents a competitive advantage for Terex® wheel loaders worldwide. A wire screen is installed in front of the high-volume cooler to protect from grit. For system cleaning and to remove fine grit, the fan automatically and periodically switches to reverse so that the system is cleared out, thus requiring considerably less maintenance. It also has the added benefit of having the air intake located in the dust-free zone behind the driver”s cab.
The fully hydraulic center pivot steering on this new wheel loader, which is a proven standard in combination with a rear-axle oscillating function, is effective, stable and cost-efficient. Thanks to load-sensing hydraulics by Rexroth with load-independent flow distribution, the operating cycles are extraordinarily smooth, non-jolting and powerful; rapid steering movements are possible even at low engine revolutions.
The cab of the new Terex® TL210 compact wheel loader offers the operator™s view through tinted windows to provide excellent visibility. The spacious cab on this new unit incorporates state-of-the-art ergonomic features including an accessible two-door entry system, an operator”s seat with hydraulic shock absorption and standard air conditioning.
