Terramac LLC delivered its 100th RT9 rubber track crawler carrier unit to its newest dealer, Groff Tractor & Equipment, headquartered in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

“We are pleased to partner with Groff Tractor & Equipment and we are very proud that they have shared in the celebration of an important milestone for Terramac by taking delivery of our 100th production unit,” said Mike Crimaldi, CEO of Terramac LLC. “Adding Groff Tractor to our dealer network helps meet the growing demand for our RT9 crawler carriers and allows us to offer our customers more localized and accessible support. We always go the extra mile for our customers, and we seek partners, like Groff Tractor, that are committed to doing the same.”

"Our team at Groff Tractor is excited to represent a reputable brand like Terramac,” said Mike Savastio, president and CEO of Groff Tractor & Equipment. “The Terramac RT9 crawler carrier has proven to be quite popular with our customers. We were pleased to take delivery of the 100th production unit.”

“After only 18 months since production began on the RT9 crawler carrier, Terramac has crossed the 100-unit production threshold,” Crimaldi said. “This milestone, combined with the continued growth and expansion of Terramac’s dealer network, are clear indicators that our strategy for growth is succeeding.”

With an operating weight of 26,000 lb (11,794 kg) and a maximum carrying capacity of 18,000 lb (8,165 kg), the RT9 is the largest mid-sized rubber track carrier that does not require special oversize permitting to transport the machine. The rubber tracks and low ground pressure allow the unit to cover a variety of ground and adverse weather conditions. Equipped with front and rear bolt-on connections, the Terramac RT9 crawler carrier has been customized to fit more than 15 different industry specific applications and can tackle a variety of jobs, including suppressing tailings dust on mines, holding welding equipment for oil and gas pipelines, and laying dirt in environmentally sensitive areas for general construction.
