That's how they roll, it's no wonder people bug me about "how my Terex is doing".

"Terex ASV" hmmm.....

GMC Chrysler, New York City Philadelphia, I'm thinking they should pick one, or maybe Terex All Surface Vehicles.

What do you mean? get rid of both this and the bobcat thread? I can understand the bobcat thread, but why this one? this is already on the official Terex website, why cant we discuss it?

I remember seeing Bobcats with mirrors and lights like that. They are a European requirement. I don't think you'll see those mirrors in the states.

Bring back the snot green like Terex's used to be painted.

Even if they brought back those ear shaken Screamin DETROITS in a skid would be just awesome:weightlifter:

You knew there was a Terex or Euclid machine working with its screaming detroit.

Oh yeah, Eucs were awesome. I remember as a kid there was a road widening job right by my house, must've been running TS-14's, maybe 24's. All I know is that I loved watching those scrapers and they were LOUD.

I like the paint. The mirrors are nice, but I would more than likely rip them off brush mowing. Hopefully they get a better dealer network in my area so I don't have to drive 90 minutes for good customer support.

I hope they improve the visibility out of the cabs on them. If they would do that and beef up the pins and bushings a little bigger I would like them allot. For now they have poor visibility and are built a little lighter duty then the competitors. I ran a asv about a month ago from a landscaper that only used it for rock hounding and light grading and it had about 1,200 hrs on it and it felt sloppy and very loose. They also maintain their equipment very well. I was not impressed on the durability of them.

i hope they go with a adapter plate that would allow being interchangable with dingo attachments on the pt30.

What model were you operating. My PT80 is built WAY better than my RC50

I think the visibility in the PT70 and PT80 could be better but the visibility in the PT50, PT60 and PT100 is fine. I don't think they're any lighter duty than the others except for the Takeuchi and everyone falls into that category. The pins on all of their machines except for the PT30 are 1.5" just like the rest in the market. My RC50 only has the 1" pins but I haven't broken one yet. It has held up better than the bobcats that I sold.

I know that there is an adapter plate for them because I saw one and asked about it. I think that Bradco makes it.

I have broke around 20 bucket pins (RC50), all 4 at least 3 times. And I broke an upper bucket cylinder pin 2 weeks ago (right side) and the leftside today. I have just over 800 hours, and problem started at 80. The pins themselves are designed so badly that the pins will "Spiderweb" crack at the inside grease hole, then snap in half.

ASV has been contacted, and has no awnsers or suggestions. I just hope to trade it off in a month or so, then it will become someon elses problem. Hopefully the PT60 I want to get has better pins.

That's a bummer, I would be quite irritated with that.

Scag.

Yes . it used to irritate me, now its just an expected thing. I stock at least 6 bucket pins at all times. And now that I am starting to break loader arm pins I am stock them as well.

I mean, I could sit an complain about it, or I can get over it and keep working. I like money to much so I went with the work option.

My dealer seems to thing something is out of whack (Briliant observation) and want us to bring it in for new pins and bushings. But I think I will just limp it through snow season and get a new one in the spring. Maybe a white one. (Terex that is)

They look good, one issue is whether Terex will cheapen the machine,
I hope not, time will tell,

Last year we rented a dingo rototiller and the rental yard had a plate that allowed RC30 to hook-up to dingo attachments. Was slick.
