March 7, 2011 – The TLB840 – the ninth generation of backhoe loaders offered by Terex – boasts an 88-horsepower Perkins engine and is powered by an optional four-speed servo power syncro transmission with automatic shifting, delivering fuel efficiency and high tractive effort.

The new TLB840 has a curved boom design that offers operators greater clearance to reach over obstacles and the ability to load closer into trucks for greater productivity. With a dig depth of 14 feet, nine inches (extended to 18 feet, one inch) and a reach up of 18 feet, nine inches (extended 21 feet, 11 inches), the Terex TLB840 is designed with a new slew system that provides high torque for easier backfilling and slewing uphill. The “deep dig” extendable dipper stick is new on the TLB840. With an optional thumb attachment, operators are able to clamp objects and materials between the bucket and dipper with ease.

The chassis on the new TLB840 is built for safe and reliable operation. With an operating weight of 15,895 lbs, Terex has fitted the TLB840 with a new cast hard nose counterweight to give improved weight distribution and full component protection. A new, larger steering cylinder, housed on the front axle, offers superior handling and reduced steering effort. Outboard wet disc brakes on the new TLB840 allow for shorter stopping distance and increased braking torque.
