Elburn, IL – Terramac, a leading manufacturer of innovative rubber track crawler carriers, recently met with thousands of attendees at their exhibit during the recent CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV.
“CONEXPO was a great success for the Terramac team,” says Mike Crimaldi, CEO of Terramac. “It was our third time exhibiting at the show and attendees were familiar with our company and product offerings. Each year we have continued to work towards expanding our crawler carrier line and capabilities. This year at CONEXPO, we put on our largest display of Terramac equipment to-date and unveiled a new rotating model, which was very well-received by attendees.”
CONEXPO attendees experienced the debut of Terramac’s most compact rotating crawler carrier, the RT7R, which was on display alongside the larger RT14R. These units’ unique ability to rotate a full 360-degrees enables them to offload materials faster than standard straight frame crawler carriers since the tracks do not need to be counter-rotated to drive another direction.
“The RT7R is an excellent solution for jobs that are in tight spaces but don’t require the payload of the larger RT14R model,” says Jesse Whittaker, Director of Business Development at Terramac. “Attendees were excited to learn that the RT7R can be legally hauled on an existing tag trailer and no additional equipment or permits are required.”
“I was excited to see the guillotine tailgate on the new RT7R at CONEXPO and thrilled when I found out I can also get that tailgate on the RT14R,” says Mark Haynes, President of Mark Haynes Construction Inc. “Our crews have utilized the Terramac RT14R for stream restoration projects and the combination of low ground pressure and 360-degree rotation makes these units incredibly efficient.”
In addition to the product launch, Terramac’s RT6, RT9 and RT14 straight frame carriers also drew attention at the exhibit. These units are designed to provide an unprecedented degree of customization and feature an exclusive bolt on/off system that enables a wide variety of support equipment to be mounted, including: concrete mixers, cranes, fifth wheels, vacuum excavators, and hydroseeding units.
“We customize electrical power sources and frame adjustments on the RT6, RT9 and RT14 to suit any configuration. The standard hydraulic system on these units is designed to accommodate the attachments, whereas competing units require a hydraulic conversion to take place,” says Whittaker.
Furthermore, Terramac highlighted the innovative rubber track technology of its units, which minimizes environmental damage and enables crews to easily maneuver through adverse ground conditions and climb faster on steep and hilly terrain. The advanced safety and efficiency features of Terramac crawler carriers was also exhibited.
“Terramac crawler carriers are a product that people can’t live without once they see firsthand what the units are capable of,” says Clete Kaemmerer, Heavy Equipment Sales at Bobcat of St. Louis. “These machines allow us to provide customers with an endless opportunity for customization. And the new RT7R is ideal for landscape, civil construction and infrastructure jobs and other projects in a tight space or with clearance restrictions. I’m excited to introduce Terramac carriers to these segments of our customer base.”
“CONEXPO provided a great opportunity to showcase our latest units and technologies, while allowing us to connect with Terramac dealers as well as current and potential customers,” says Crimaldi. “We are thrilled with the positive outcome.”
