Terex® PT-50 Compact Track Loader: the machine of choice for machinery operator training



SUNSHINE COAST, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA, March 2014 – For businesses to grow and succeed, up-to-date training for all staff is essential - both in the latest Work Health & Safety procedures and in operator training.


Registered training organisation, Diggerman Training, has chosen the Terex PT-50 compact track loader with Posi-Track® suspension technology as a key machine to be used for their equipment licensing courses.


“We find the Terex loader perfect for training,” Richard Burke, Owner/Director of Diggerman explains. “Our course modules in High Risk and Confined Space require a compact loader that is reliable and maneuverable; one that enables the operator to experience the best in compact loader technology.”


Thanks to the patented Posi-Track technology, the Terex PT-50 loader is evenly distributed down to just 24.1 kPa of ground pressure, providing excellent traction and flotation even in soft ground conditions, and providing a smooth and comfortable ride. The machine’s hefty 50 horsepower engine provides continuous, smooth and reliable power, supported by a load-sensing hydraulic system that prevents engine stalls.



Founded in 2002, Diggerman offers a wealth of services to the civil construction sector. With an earthmoving division, line marking service, and a number of franchises across Gladstone and Brisbane, Diggerman says its reputation has been built with the help of using only the most trusted names in civil construction machinery.


“We have ten Terex Posi-Track compact loaders across the business now - from the compact PT-30 mid range models and the PT-100G,” Richard said.


At the top of the range, the PT-100G is the most powerful Terex compact track loader. Featuring 457mm wide rubber tracks, rugged construction and exceptional ground clearance, the PT-100G unit is the perfect choice for more demanding jobs such road profiling, brush cutting and mulching.


With a highly efficient high-flow auxiliary hydraulic system and hydraulic cooling package, Terex says its PT-100G track loader offers more usable hydraulic power than other machinery in its class, due to its advanced load-sensing hydraulic system.


“Our courses are fast becoming the first choice for operators in the area. And to continue that level of professional service, we’ll always use the Terex Posi-Track loader to provide our customers with the best training possible,” Richard added.
