Want the ability to dump in any direction from one position or when on the move? You can have it with Terramac’s RT14R, which features a rugged upper frame that rotates a full 360 degrees and hauls and dumps material from any position, even while moving.

This unique rotational functionality allows the 320-horsepower RT14R to offload faster than with a standard straight frame because its tracks don’t need to be counter-rotated to drive in another direction.

The RT14R’s ability to dump in any direction without damaging the surrounding ground also minimizes environmental damage and land-restoration costs.

Low ground pressure and rotating functionality make the RT14R ideal for work in confined spaces and environmentally sensitive areas such as railroad track right-of-way access, rivers and levees, general earthmoving, site prep, mining and utility jobs. It delivers a carrying capacity of 28,000 pounds.

The innovative machine enhances safety by eliminating the time an operator spends traveling in reverse. Downtime is reduced with easy access to maintenance checks, and track wear is significantly less as the unit can spin, resulting in lower repair expenses.

Excellent flotation with rubber tracks

Like other Terramac crawler carriers, the RT14R incorporates rubber-track technology that exerts minimal ground pressure while fully loaded, making it a good choice for loose and wet ground conditions where heavy, wheeled- or steel-track machines are likely to get stuck. Flotation from the tracks leaves a minimal footprint and less soil disturbance while providing reduced slippage to conquer adverse conditions, climb faster on rugged terrain and reach remote areas.

The carrier has a multi-function joystick with dump controls for user-friendly operation and a two-speed hydraulic transmission for increased power. It is manufactured in North America, built entirely of premium components. The carrier is ergonomically designed with features such as a wide-access door, windows on all sides and a large rearview mirror for excellent visibility. A tilt hood for engine access and a dog house for fluid/filter checks are also provided for hassle-free maintenance.
