New Terramac Crawler Carrier Line From Rig Source

November 2012, Vol. 67, No. 11

Drilling equipment dealer, Rig Source Inc., located in Elburn, IL, has introduced their new Terramac RT9 rubber track multipurpose carrier.

The CE certified Terramac RT9 model has an 18,000-pound carrying capacity and is equipped with a 230 horsepower Cummins diesel engine in both open cab and closed cab options. The unit has rollover protective structure (ROPS) as well as falling object protective structure (FOPS) components. Ground pressure when fully loaded is only 4.9 psi. The RT9’s easy front and rear bolt-on attachments can accommodate a variety of needs in the drilling and general construction industries.

Cylinder mounts and front and rear attachment plates are all bolt-on for easy replacement. The pivot shaft blocks are also bolted on, rather than welded on. Cleanouts are included on the frame to simplify clearing mud and water from the frame rails as well.

The Terramac RT9 has a 17 foot, 7 inch overall length and is 8 feet, 5 inches wide with a 9 foot, 3 inch height and 20-inch minimum ground clearance. The unit’s travel speed is 4.7 to 7 mph. It has a 10-foot turning radius.

“I think a lot of our customers will really appreciate that these machines are manufactured in North America,” said Mike Crimaldi, president of Rig Source. “Terramac’s goal is to deliver machines in a shorter lead-time than manufacturers in Asia.” 630.365.1649, rigsourceinc.com
