Terex Construction unveils TLB870 backhoe loader at Lamma 2017 in UK


Terex Construction exclusively unveiled its all-new TLB870 backhoe loader at the UK’s Lamma 2017 agricultural exhibition this week (January 18-19).

The exciting new machine was on display at the Willowbrook Plant Services stand at the event at the East of England Show Ground, Peterborough.

The TLB870 is packed full of modern design features, including an all-new loader arm, bespoke roof canopy and LED lights, and of course boasts improved performance and effiency.

With up to a 7% increase in dig reach and 8% increase in dig depth compared to the competition, the TLB870 offers superior excavator productivity. In addition, an intelligent hydraulic system, featuring unique in-loader valve and tandem gear pump, reduces power consumption while improving fuel economy.

Servo controls offer enhanced operator ergonomics and instant familiarity, while a class-leading tear-out performance offers up to a 30% improvement against the competition.

On launching the new backhoe, Brian Conn, Sales Director at Willowbrook Plant Services, commented: “The TLB870 will give us something new for the market – as it combines low cost of ownership with excellent excavator performance.”

“LAMMA is a key event in the agricultural calendar and provides an excellent platform to launch the new model. We’re confident that the TLB870 will be positively received, thanks to its proven design and impressive productivity.”

Paul Macpherson, sales and marketing director at Terex Construction’s Coventry facility, added: “The TLB870 is an exciting addition to Terex’s comprehensive range of backhoe loaders. Following months of development – many of which have been undertaken in direct partnership with key customers, distributors and operators – we’ve developed a highly productive model which precisely meets the needs of today’s backhoe marketplace.”
