High operational reliability and simple maintenance are another strong feature of the Terberg machines. The cabin can be tilted up 71° to ensure unobstructed access to the engine in connection with service and repair.
For this machine, Terberg has developed an innovative flat radiator – with three independent cooling modules placed on top of each other for the intercooler, engine and transmission respectively. The radiator is also easy to clean and maintain.
Terberg RT and Terberg TT are way ahead when it comes to driver comfort, safety and simple maintenance. The strengths of the RoRo terminal tractors have been enhanced even further. Terberg is moving terminal operations into top gear. Experience from thousands of operating hours and new technology moved up a level when Terberg launched the first generation of RT terminal tractors in April 2010.
These specialist heavy duty machines, with 2 and 4 wheel drive respectively, have been improved in a wide range of areas to increase overall efficiency in RoRo handling, terminal operations and other forms of trailer handling.
One of the areas of focus is to create the best possible working environment for the driver. That’s why the VIP cabin on the Terberg machines is undoubtedly the best in the world in its category in terms of ergonomics, safety and low noise levels.
The heavy duty machine Terberg RT403 provides an impressive towing power of 403 HP and further optimization of e.g. fuel consumption and driver comfort.
The Terberg RT403 is a machine that is often used in both industrial companies and in port areas and terminals, thanks to its durability and value in performing heavy duty transports. Technological innovation and ever increasing demands placed by companies on the volume and size of goods lie behind the optimized design of the Terberg RT403. Despite the high performance of the machine, the engine is extremely quiet and environmentally friendly.
Driver comfort and productivity are two sides of the same coin. Terberg is known for delivering the best cabin on the market in terms of ergonomics, space, safety, noise and visibility. The spacious cabin has large window surfaces, which give a clear view on all sides and the use of soundproof materials ensures a virtually noise-free working environment.
The Terberg BC182 combines flexibility and extreme solidity with a well thought out VIP cabin, focusing on optimal comfort, visibility and safety. The machine can move any type of truck bed and trailer found in terminals and distribution centres.
The Terberg BC182 is a true three-in-one machine that ensures the necessary flexibility in distribution centres and terminals, where the goods arrive or are handled on different modes of transport.
The BC182 is available with lifting frames for swap bodies, 5th wheels for trailers and a standard trailer hitch for truck trailers. The machine thus covers all common types of truck bed and trailer.
The specially designed Terberg DT (Distribution Tractor) has a low boarding height, a panoramic view from the cabin and a host of safety features, which sets a new standard for the Terberg DT series when it comes to moving trailers at busy goods terminals, central warehouses and distribution centres.
The low boarding height and a cabin floor that is just a half meter above the ground make Terberg DT well-suited for busy trailer traffic. The operator of a Terberg DT is literally at eye level with other drivers and pedestrians at the terminal. The low height helps minimize the risk of collision and other accidents.
The popular Terberg YT (Yard Tractor) series is available in diesel, electric and hydrogen versions. It has been developed from a multi-functional concept including increased driver comfort, high efficiency and a host of optional equipment to enhance operations in distribution centres, port terminals, waste disposal sites and industrial companies.
The new Terberg YT is extremely powerful and can handle a maximum 5th wheel load of 36 tonnes. This means there is always plenty of power in reserve for the vast number of trailers that are handled in the course of a day.
Increased driver comfort
Of course, Terberg has also listened to the wishes of the machine drivers who spend many hours working behind the wheel. These have been taken into account to improve driver comfort in the form of a unique cabin suspension, plenty of room for accessories and storage, robust mirror arms, ergonomically designed control panel and an efficient heater to prevent fogging on windows.
The electric Terberg runs 100% on electric power and is therefore extremely quiet, making it a major benefit to the environment.
Groundbreaking battery technology
The machines are equipped with groundbreaking lithium battery technology. This gives a much longer operating time without recharging, and when charging is finally required, it only takes about 2½ hours. A fully charged lithium battery can operate for 9-10 hours.
New technology is continuously used to further improve terminal tractors and extend Terberg’s leading position with regards to ease of use, ergonomics and safety. “Keep it simple and safe” is the fundamental Terberg principle behind construction, design and technology.
The range of Terberg Terminal Tractors includes:
Terberg YT - models with a separate drivers platform on the side of the cabin for handling e.g. loose trailers.
Terberg RT - models with a turnable drivers seat designed for RoRo tasks and very heavy transports that require both raw power and speed.
Terberg TT - models with a turnable drivers seat for traditional terminal tasks in e.g. ports.
Terberg BC - a flexible three-in-one machine that can handle swap bodies and conventional trailers.
Terberg DT - the Terberg DT series is specially designed for internal transport at goods terminals, central warehouses and distribution centres.
Terberg Zagro - a real specialist machine adapted to work on and around railway track as it can run on both wheels and rails.
The range also includes special solutions such as the Terberg with attached sand spreader or Terberg low rider terminal tractors.
" The new Terberg diesel engines are the result of many years of development work by Terberg engineers, where the engines have gradually been improved. At the same time, environmental technology is becoming more and more complex, for example the AdBlue liquid requires a separate injection system and the SCR catalytic converter also adds new components to the structure of the engines.
