Advanced Russian road construction machines were shown in Kuban
— June 14, 2018, Krasnodar — RM-Terex, together with the Tekhnomir dealership center (Krasnodar), acted as partners for the road construction machine operators contest organized by the Krasnodaravtodor public institution and the Road Builders Union, Krasnodar Regional Employers’ Association, with support from the Ministry of Transport and Road Industry of the Krasnodar Region.
By tradition, RM-Terex and the Tekhnomir dealership center acted as partners for the professional contest held among road construction machine operators of the Krasnodar Region. The annual event organized by Krasnodaravtodor and the Road Builders Union was supported by the Ministry of Transport and Road Industry of the Krasnodar Region. It took place at the quarry site in the Labinsky District.
The fleets of over 30 companies — members of Krasnodaravtodor — have been joined by advanced road construction machines from RM-Terex.
During the test drive, the operators assessed the comfort and controllability of machines: The WX 200 wheel excavator and the TG 180 motor grader.
Just like the entire TG lineup, the 180 motor grader has an ergonomic cabin designed to match the operator’s needs in any application. The hexagonal cab design and panoramic windows provide excellent visibility. The hydromechanical transmission selects gears depending on the load. The rear bogie with final drive gears helps save time and money during maintenance. The automatic transmission paired with the rear bogie design creates a blade pull force reaching 11 tons (106 kN).
The WX 200 excavator is a multi-use, general construction machine intended for excavation work in road construction and rehabilitation. Specifications: Bucket capacity (1 m3), depth (6.6 м), reach (10 m), digging force (151 kN) — ranking among the best-in-class models. In its standard configuration, the WX 200 offers a variety of features: a rearview camera, an electric fuel pump, 8 work lights, a starting preheater, single-flow hydraulic circuit for removable attachments (hydraulic hammer, mulcher, etc.), transmission protection, fenders on all wheels.
Vladimir Itskov, Sales Director of RM-Terex:
“Road building is the most developed construction sector in the Krasnodar Region. The growing population and the recently opened Crimean Bridge mean heavy traffic loads on regional highways and local roads. It also means that a large number of road construction companies will be involved in road maintenance. Competitions and contests are aimed to improve professional skills of drivers-operators and to demonstrate the range of capabilities of the present-day machines.”
