Terex added the 2,650-lb. rated operating capacity Terex R265T compact track loader, which features a 74-hp turbocharged Tier 4 final diesel engine with variable flow hydraulics, to its Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loader line-up.

Boasting a 70-in. machine width, the R265T radial lift path compact track loader can maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites, making it an ideal loader for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications, Terex said.

The R265T loader has 221 ft-lb of peak torque, a tipping load of 7,571 lbs., a bucket breakout force of 5,800 lbs. and a lift height of 125 in. Compact track loaders, like the R265T unit, are engineered with a radial lift path, meaning the loader arms raise in an arc pattern. According to the company, this design makes the machines excel at digging and grading applications and promotes operator visibility.

The Terex R265T compact track loader comes standard with 18-in. wide tracks and Posi-Track undercarriage technology with multiple levels of suspension that distribute the machine’s 9,180-lbs. operating weight down to only 3.6 psi of ground pressure, according to Terex. This model is also available with optional 20-in. tracks.

GEN2 compact track loaders, including the new R265T model, use a proprietary all-rubber track, rather than a rigid track technology with steel embedded tracks mounted on an existing skid-steer chassis. By using composite materials rather than a steel skeleton, Terex tracks do not corrode or rust, according to the company.
