    Were looking at purchasing the Terex TL80 loader. We basically only use it for snow. Does anybody have any input. We have local dealers that seem to be willing to work with use. So I think dealer support should be good. Top speed 22mph, 1.3yrd bucket, about 11,000lbs, 60hp. Any input will be greatly appreciated, Thanks

    We have an 05 Ingersoll Rand WL440 we bought last winter (repainted TL 100 Terex made for Ingersoll Rand). Roughly 75 HP and weighs 13,500 lb. Handles the 1.5 yd. bucket full of slabs of concrete and loads it into 10 wheelers and triaxles at 10 -11 ft like a champ. Snow, even easier of course. We used it for snow removal/ push back piles last year, looking for a 2 yard snow bucket for it this year. Great machine, I would go with at least the TL 100, personally we would like to be in at least the TL 120, the TL 160 would have been the perfect size but they dont make it any more.
