    I just purchased this Compact Wheel loader Terex TL 80 and should take delivery in a week or two. I wanted to post a few pictures to show it off. Can't wait to push some snow with it. :bluebounc I am contemplating what size pusher box to go with. I like arctic and the trip on it seems amazing, I also want to go with a metal cutting edge but I'm open to options.

    I'm jealous. I would love to have a loader that size.

    well it was 60k and its not a crazy price like a regular sized loader and the bucket is a 1.2 yard but will soon have a snow box. The best thing about it is that is brand new and I get to fart in the seat first :laughing: but if you come to NJ I promise the test drive is free:)

    is Terex based off another brand?

    I know there skid steer line was ASV or there was some relation there.
    The loader looks similar to a volvo?

    Nice loader, a 10 or 12ft pusher would be perfect for that machine in average snow falls.

    ASV and Terex are the same company (I believe that the Track equipment with the "PosiTrack" was all ASV and Terex was always the larger earth moving equipment) not sure if they are still marketing under ASV name and I know that the dealer I had purchased this from had ASV track loaders (which was great on the test drive I took, problem was they were only 5 or 6 grand cheaper then my TL80) in there lot in I believe yellow & black color a year or two ago and had switched over to branding Terex in white on the Track machines. The engine on my TL 80 is a German, Deutz which is a 140yr old engine company.

    ASV was started by the guy who owns polaris and another guy in the late 90's. they were building their own skid loaders know as POSI-Track. CAT bought into their company and started putting their track systems on their machines. then terex bought out asv's skid loader frim all together and now cat has to build their own track systems for their machines, ASV still produces other products such as a hydraulic clutch systems for motocross bikes (found onf KTMS stock) or aftermarket.

    I am interested to hear how that loader works in snow. The company I work for has had that same loader for almost 3 years now, but it has never seen snow. We use it to load landscape materials on pick-ups and small trailers. Works well as a forklift to.

    Any reason why you bought a Terex over a deere or cat? for 8K more you could get a deere and for 2K ontop of that you coulda had a cat.....

    Any reason why anybody goes to a reliable dealer over another.


    And the answer is: Dealer location & Support

    I actually called Cat before I purchased this and they never even called me back

    Right on, I do agree that is very very important, if not the most important... Goodluck with your new purchase!
