Terramac is proud to announce that we’ve enhanced our Terramac RT6 carrier model to improve performance, operator comfort and serviceability. As a leading manufacturer of rubber tracked crawler carriers we take pride in our equipment and are constantly looking for and working on ways to improve our products. It is our mission to deliver high quality crawler carriers and we continue to do so by routinely integrating new technology, abiding by equipment regulations and incorporating customer feedback into our developments. The latest set of changes outlined below is effective on all new 2019 RT6 carrier models.
All new Terramac RT6 carrier models will come equipped with a Cummins B4.5 Performance Series (US Tier 4 & EU Stage V compliant) engine. The new engine will provide the RT6 with more power and torque while reducing emissions and lowering fuel consumption. The Cummins Guidanz technology also streamlines the diagnostic and repair process for dealer technicians to ensure RT6 carriers are well maintained and running properly. The gradeability on the RT6 was improved to feature an increased slope capability of 24° to 30°, and a new proportional dump valve control was installed to provide operators greater control and smoother operation when dumping materials. Front and rear pull plates have become standardized for increased flexibility in towing and recovery.
To address operator comfort the Terramac RT6 was upgraded to a dual joystick for relaxed steering and increased control. The addition of an electronic slope indicator was placed on the RT6 to increase safety by alerting operators to potentially unsafe conditions and noise level have been reduced by 3 dBa. A Bluetooth compatible radio was also installed allowing operators the ability to remain hands-free while making and receiving phone calls or playing music in the cab.
Both the dog house and electrical service center on new RT6 models have been redesigned. The doghouse redesign improves access to fuel filters, fluids and batteries. The electrical service center was expanded to include the main engine fuses and relays, jump start posts, battery disconnect, DEF tank and air filter.
