Terex [wheeled] SSLs

http://equipment.forconstructionpros...-Steer_Loaders

Looks like this may be the first image of the new Terex SSL on the internet... sadly, no high-res shots or specs. Terex Construction's training site confirms the model numbers (but also no specs).

That looks like a vertical lift machine about the size of a bobcat S185. Not the best looking machine I've ever seen....but also not the worst. I'd like to see some more specifications on them. Good find!

It actually looks like Terex borrowed the frame tower, loader torque tube, and engine cowling from the ASVs -- but I agree it's tough to discern anything.

Maybe these are at World of Concrete in a few weeks? It seems like they'll be at "The Rental Show" (late Feb. - early March), but that doesn't seem like a great place to release a new line of machines.

Conexpo in March seems like a logical choice since it's the biggest thing going this year as far as attendance, other introductions (Case/NH skids), and all the pomp and circumstance.

I can see a little bit of a C series Cat in the design. Anyone else see that?
Paint scheme is great. Very paramilitary!

Tiger, get some specs dammit!!

Some one know where this machine comes from. It looks like an Italian model I have seen before. Did they build this themselves? Kinda doubt that since Terex has yet to build anything themselves. At a time when Komatsu backs out of the market, CNH consolidates machines, Volvo and JCB consolidates skid steers for a company to open up a new line of machines takes some balls. Good on em.

I know it is US built at their ASV factory, and I was told it was designed entirely "in house". Not sure about who's technology they used, but I imagine they'd use their CTL compnents when possible...Perkins engines, Rexroth pumps and controls, etc. I'm looking forward to seeing one up close.

i like the fact that the vertical lift linkage system isnt so big and obtrusive like some other designs.

I would like to see what kind of reach it has.

What do you figure...30-34"? By the looks of the machine size I got to imagine it stacks up against the S185.
