Next Generation Terex TLB890 Backhoe Loader Increases Productivity for Aberdeen Owner-Operator


Owner-operator Colin Smith has been loyal to Terex since he bought his first backhoe loader 14 years ago. Now, after upgrading to the latest TLB890 model, he’s been delighted with how the Terex range has continued to develop and has actively seen his daily productivity increase. Here, he reveals how the TLB890 backhoe’s innovative features have made a positive difference.


With efficiency, productivity and durability key to delivering excellent results, Colin Smith, an experienced owner-operator from Aberdeen, Scotland, recently made the decision to upgrade his backhoe loader. The 55th Anniversary Special Edition Terex TLB890 backhoe loader was the perfect solution – a high performance machine built with the user in mind. Colin bought the backhoe from his nearby Terex equipment distributor, located in Balgownie, Scotland, and has been more than impressed with the results.


“Terex machines are strong, reliable and effective – perfect for the foundations and drainage work I undertake. Terex manufactures a great portfolio of backhoe loaders but the TLB890 model really is something else,” said Colin. “Alongside being able to complete a wide variety of digging, trenching and earth moving tasks, the TLB890 loader has noticeably increased my daily productivity. The pushing power and performance is excellent.”




Economic and highly productive, the 111HP turbo-charged power unit provides a 12.5% increase in engine torque compared to previous models. An impressive pushing force, ultra-tight turning circle, curved boom and enhanced slew system provides effortless loading, excavating and manoeuvrability.

“I need the flexibility of being able to move between sites and so it is important for me to have a strong, roadworthy vehicle,” he added. “My TLB890 has it all – a great design, easy operation, innovative features and a lot of power.”
