Terex TC16 compact excavator

Two new compact excavators are on the market: the TC16 and the TC29 from Terex.

The excavators have Tier 4 Final Mitsubishi diesel engines with load independent flow distribution (LUDV). The LUDV distributes hydraulic power proportionally. They also include an auto-idling system, Knickmatic boom system for working alongside structures and treads intended for larger surface areas.

The neck cylinders are top mounted and are designed for high clearance. End-positioning cushioning are used for vibration reduction and comfort.

Here are specs for the individual excavators:
