Terex TC37 mini excavator shows its mettle in NZ

Reliability, toughness and power are at the top of McDonough Contracting’s list when it comes to earthmoving equipment — which is why the New Zealand company waxes lyrical about its Terex TC37 mini excavator.

“Our TC37 is a well designed and manufactured machine,” Managing Director Bruce McDonough says. “The excavator is very reliable and equipped with robustly constructed buckets. Its engine and hydraulics deliver all the power we need.”

The South Island company, which specialises in thrust boring, directional drilling, cable installation, farm water schemes and road maintenance, has used the mini excavator in a wide range of challenging tasks, McDonough says.

He lists the zero-tail-swing TC37’s top features as being: bucket capacities of 54-191 litres; a maximum dig depth of 3,200mm; a float position for the dozer blade; and engine power of 22kW.

In addition, the TC37 excavator offers optional hydraulic system features including Terex ‘electro-proportional fingertip controls’ for precise movement, and an additional control-circuit foot pedal.

Operator space in the cab has been optimised by side-mounting the engine. Cab options include a ROPS canopy with floodlight, plus seat options that include pneumatic lumbar support, air damping, extra-high backrest and longitudinal-horizontal suspension.

“The cab is great, and our operators are more than happy with the TC37 unit,” McDonough says.” With its range of attachments, the TC37 unit has been a great addition to our equipment fleet.”

Terex equipment is distributed by Advancequip in New Zealand and ASV Sales & Service in Australia.
