Terex has introduced seven hydraulic transverse cutting units to the North American market. Featuring transmissions with patented gear reduction technology, these attachments are designed for use with the Terex family of excavators (models ranging from 4,400 to 132,000 pounds) and with Terex tractor loader backhoes. Terex hydraulic cutting units are ideal for trenching in pipeline construction.
“Our cutting units are manufactured for efficient material crushing,” says Jamie Wright, Terex product manager. “They are designed for smooth, quiet running, low vibration and equipment-friendly operation. With a wide selection of motors, drums and picks available, our cutting attachments can be matched to the application for high cutting performance and low pick wear.”
The Terex cutting unit range is comprised of seven models – WS15, WS30, WS45N, WS60N, WS90N, WS120N and WS150N – all designed with heavy-duty spur gears and bearings, powered by a low-speed, high-torque hydraulic drive motor ranging from 24 to 190 hp and a hydraulic flow ranging from 8 to 158 gpm. The transmissions of Terex hydraulic transverse cutting units feature patented gear reduction that boosts cutting power.
