The crawler loader, or track loader, is an item of construction equipment that rides on hydrostatically driven tracks. They are used to move and load loose material, the tracks providing improved traction on soft ground and a resistance to the kind of rough terrain that can damage rubber tires.
Track Loaders And Their Major Manufacturers
Crawler loaders bring together the stability of crawler tractors with the capabilities of wheel loaders. They come into their own on soft and unstable ground as the tracks spread the weight, and can easily move across the entire construction site under their own power. Their excellent manoeuvrability includes the option of the machine turning in its own length. The diesel engine is generally placed in the rear of the machine to provide the driver with better forward visibility and to serve as an effective counterweight to a full bucket.
Crawler loaders are predominantly used for scooping up loose material to place onto a truck or conveyor. Full size track loaders popular on the market today are the two LIEBHERR machines with Tier 3 engines and which join the company's best selling LR634. Their 143 horsepower LR624 succeeds the LR622 and incorporates the sleek and functional design of the LR 634. The JOHN DEERE 755D track loader is the largest of the company's three crawler loaders and has the benefit of their Total Machine Control system. The CATERPILLAR 973D crawler loader is also proving to be highly rated in the industry. When it comes to compact crawler loaders, JCB (who produced the first rear engine hydrostatic tracked loader in 1971), CATERPILLAR and BOBCAT are definitely leading the field in positive feedback. However, the TEREX PT-35 is rapidly gaining ground due to its power, intuitive controls and tight manoeuvrability.
The Advantages Of Buying Used Track Loader At Auction
Since their 1960s heyday the demand for large crawler loaders has declined due to the rise in popularity of the hydraulic excavator, which can perform the same tasks and more. Only JOHN DEERE, CATERPILLAR and LIEBHERR make the larger track loaders today. This has led to a thriving used track loader for sale market, where this piece of equipment can be picked up at a more affordable price than their brand new counterparts. Crawler loader auctions are a great way to view a wide selection of these durable and reliable machines and conveniently compare prices and condition.
