Terex TC550 now features an on-demand hydraulic steering and blade control system with an improved blade lift and steering cylinders. The upgrades reduce heat buildup and extend the life of the 110,000-pound compactor. Other enhancements include a more durable steering cylinder mounting, reinforced mounts, and a cab with new joysticks that increase the operator’s control over the blade, travel direction, steering and working speed range. The TC550 also boasts an asset-management system, which relays critical faults and utilizes GPS and satellite technology to collect operational information.
