TEREX® TL100 WHEEL LOADER SCORES AT EURO 2012
A Terex® TL100 wheel loader scored big points with Greenboss crews by helping to replace the turf at the Lech Poznań Stadium (Bułgarska Street, Poznań city) in Poland, site of the Euro 2012 football competition.
Grzegorz Szulczyński, owner of Greenboss, leased the brand new wheel loader from Terex distributor EWPA Maszyny Budowlane in Komorniki, to remove the old grass, level the terrain and lay the new UEFA compliant grass rolls in time for the opening kick-off.
The project cost 450.000 zlotys in total and used approximately 700 grass rolls.
According to Mr Szulczyński, the TL100 was a perfect match for the range of work it performed in the stadium. He said: “It was hard work, but the machine did an outstanding job. The TL100’s compact dimensions (weight of 5.7 tonne) and mobility meant that the vegetation layer did not become compacted in the process, leaving the newly laid turf intact. Our employees were impressed by the speed and ease of shifting and moving turf layers provided by the machine.”
Terex TL100 wheel loaders have a large bucket capacity which ranges from 1.0 to 1.55m3 allowing them to shift large volumes of material. Another feature of the TL100 is its parallel kinematics® which allows material to be lifted and moved swiftly with precision.
Marek Miller from EWPA Maszyny Budowlane’s sales department said that they have already received orders for eight similar machines in the area. He believes that the TL100’s popularity is a result of many reasons, including the closed-circuit hydrostatic travel drive which offers powerful performance with low fuel consumption. In addition, the separation of the travel drive and the working hydraulics offers the operator excellent torque at all times, allowing the machine to move smoothly up to top speed, reducing on-site journey time.
On the Poznan site, operators were particularly impressed with the easy access to the engine and battery compartments provided by the wide opening one-piece hood, which allows for more efficient maintenance.
