Terramac RT6 rubber-track crawler carrier is the company’s most compact unit

The RT6 rubber-track crawler carrier is the company’s most compact unit, having a footprint of just slightly more than 16x8 feet. Carrying capacity is 12,000 pounds, and top speed is 6.5 mph. The new model uses a 130-horsepower Cummins QSB 4.5 engine. Fully loaded, the RT6 has a ground pressure of 5.4 psi, and flotation provided by the rubber tracks allows the machine to work in adverse ground and weather conditions. Track design also facilitates faster climbing on mountainous and hilly terrains with reduced slippage. The RT6 accommodates a variety of support equipment: digger derricks; bark blowers; cranes; vacuum excavators; generators; and tanks. Standard units are available with either a flat bed, dump bed, or rock dump bed. 

A roll-over protective structure (ROPS) and falling object protective structure (FOPS) are standard, and the RT6 is available with both open- and closed-cabs, the latter featuring a wide access door and windows on all sides to enhance visibility. A USB port, air-conditioning controls, improved grab handles, and a quick-release grate button provide added convenience. A tilt hood allows for engine access, and a “dog house” for fluid/filter checks facilitates maintenance.
