Weighing in at 3,800 and 6,450 pounds, respectively, the new Terex TC16 and TC29 compact excavators have rated digging depths of 7 feet 3 inches and 9 feet 10 inches. Both use Tier 4-Final Mitsubishi diesel engines and feature load-independent flow distribution, which, says Terex, allows all hydraulic functions to be controlled simultaneously and independently. The off-set boom design of the new models (the Knickmatik boom system) permits the machines to dig closely next to structures, and the linkage is designed to allow loading high-sided trucks. Cylinders feature end-of-stroke cushioning. In-cab features include pilot-operated controls, control-pattern changer, and electro-proportional controls for attachments, such as hydraulic hammers, grabs, cutting wheels and augers.
