Hydrostatic planetary drive at each wheel provides the new 400-horsepower-class Terex RS445C reclaimer/stabilizer with "true" four-wheel drive, according to Terex Roadbuilding. With no axles, flow dividers or lock differentials, the RS445C introduced at World of Concrete 2009 delivers the power and traction required for applications ranging from deep stabilization with lime slurry to reclamation cuts pushing a tanker up-hill, the company says. Drawbar pull has been increased by more than 40 percent over the RS425C model. A center-mount cutter assembly positions the 59,000 pounds of operating weight over the 96-inch cutting width to keep the rotor from riding out of the cut.
