Handling heavy loads in a demanding environment
TAGS: Industrial Tractor, Steel industry, RT tractors
The steel industry combines an often dusty and demanding operating environment with heavy loads and a 24/7 operation 365 days a year. Terberg's industrial versions of the RT tractors are specifically designed for such applications. For example, our RT403 can handle loads up to 200 tonnes. Many of these units operate in steel factories all over the world.
Terberg DTS recently supplied two RT403s with a 3.5" cardanic fifth wheel, Volvo Stage 5 engine and ZF transmission to a longstanding client in the steel industry, which operates Terberg vehicles in several countries. These tractors are replacements for equipment delivered almost 20 years ago - proving the quality and reliability of Terberg vehicles. They are customised with special kits to operate hydraulic cassette trailers and will handle around a million tonnes of steel annually.
