Case study: Taking in the view from a Terex tracked loader

Vision, comfort and power are on the top of earthmoving business owner/operator Jeremy Redman’s shopping list, which is why he’s been using a series of mid-sized Terex PT-50 tracked loaders.

"I’ve had three of the PT-50s," says Redman, whose company, Newcastle-based Redman Earthmoving, specialises in residential cutting and subdivision work.

"Originally I started with a wheel machine and I have driven most other track machines, but the first time I jumped in the PT-50 I knew I’d never go back," he says

Putting about 4,000 hours on each loader, Redman changes his PT-50 every two to three years, while getting about 1,600 hours service out of one set of tracks.

"The vision out of the PT-50 is a big plus factor," he says. "You can see the cutting edges of your front bucket which means you can get the job done faster. No other machine I’ve ever tried has such great front and rear vision."

Other features coming into play are the power produced by the factory-fitted turbocharged 44.7kW diesel engine and the Posi-Track suspended undercarriage technology. The latter is designed to maximizes traction and flotation while giving operators the most comfortable ride possible.

That’s very important to Redman as an operator as well as an owner, he says: "It’s really comfortable to operate. It’s my workplace for 10 hours a day, so when you are working a machine on uneven ground for that long, comfort is a major consideration."
