The Terex skid steer line ranges in rated operating capacity from 1,500 to 3,000 lbs. and uses Perkins power, ranging from 50 to 83 hp. Power trains are designed to deliver generous axle torque through burly Rexroth drive pumps and motors. Mechanically faced axle seals -- a $1,000 option for prolonging seal life on some skid steers -- are standard equipment. An optional two-speed transmission propels Terex loaders up to 12 mph.
Pilot-hydraulic joystick control puts ground drive in the operator's left hand and boom and bucket control in the right. Load-sensing hydraulics deliver hydraulic horsepower only when it's needed.
List price on the smallest radial-lift machine, the TSR-60 with cab and air conditioning, is about $32,000. Terex says all the units are priced in the middle of the market; "very competitively" with the more-premium machines with which Terex feels they compete.
