Terex’s TC16 compact excavator has a dig depth of 7 ft., 3 in. and a maximum reach of 12 ft., 10 in.

Terex introduced its TC16 and TC29 compact excavators, which were designed to enhance jobsite productivity, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. According to the company, these machines can complete a wide range of jobs, including trenching, excavating, ground leveling, backfilling, grading, contouring and loading/unloading.

These Tier 4 excavators are engineered with load independent flow distribution and can work with attachments such as hydraulic hammers, cutting units and auger drills.

The TC16, weighing in at 3,800 lbs., has a dig depth of 7 ft., 3 in. and a maximum reach of 12 ft., 10 in. The TC29 weighs 6,450 lbs. and achieves a maximum dig depth of 9 ft., 10 in. and a maximum reach of 16 ft., 5 in.

Both excavators come equipped with auto-idling systems to help improve fuel economy and Knickmatik boom systems for working alongside walls or other infrastructures. In addition, they both feature top-mounted neck cylinders designed to provide additional clearance for the operator to load large vehicles, says the company.

The TC16 and TC29 models were built with ergonomic cabs with visibility in all directions, as well as pilot-operated controls, changeable control patterns and fingertip controls. They also include inverted boom cylinders and spherical bearings.
