Terex Extends Its Four-Model Motor Grader Range with New Top of the Line 23tonne, 234hp Model Tg230

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

The Terex® range of German-built ‘TG’ Motor Graders has been extended with the addition of a new top-of-the-range 23t model TG230. Powered by a 234hp (175kW) Cummins QSB 6.7 litre engine, the Terex® TG230 also benefits from the powerful performance of an advanced ZF (6-forward, 3-reverse) full-powershift transmission. This provides high starting torque and smooth progressive shifting even under full load.
To optimize power, traction and precision grading the ‘Hydrodynamic’ drive-train of the TG230 includes an optional micro-processor-controlled hydrostatic front-wheel-drive drive to the oscillating front axle. There is a torque-converter lock-up, and the degree of control is such that no inching pedal is required, ensuring smooth, accurate grading capability.
For maximum productivity on this high-powered unit, Terex offers either a 14 ft (4.27m) or 16 ft (4.88m) fully articulated mold board, with a unique additional choice between a simple slipper-guided or a fully-sealed roller bearing slewing ring, complete with overload safety clutch. Along with factory-fitted GPS leveling, additional ground-engaging tools include front and rear scarifiers.
The articulated frame provides exceptional maneuverability for the operator, which is further enhanced by the choice of optional front wheel-lean. This together with the load-sensing hydraulic control system provides sensitive and accurate controllability for the operator, with an adjustable steering and control column pedestal.
The side-tilting cab and rear-tilting engine hood provide easy service access to all components and hoses, and the ROPS/FOPS cab itself features sliding doors and tinted glass with excellent visibility and multiple mirrors and working lights. A reduced height cab is also available.
Other machines in the Terex® ‘TG’ Motor Grader range include the TG110, TG150 and TG190 at 11, 15 and 19t operating weights respectively, enabling Terex to offer a full range of specifications for road building and maintenance, mining, drainage and landscaping operations, fully complementing the other excavators and hauling products for the mining and construction industries.
