MOVING EARTH ON SUNSHINE COAST Mooloolah Posi-Track Hire gets the job done with Terex® PT-50 track loader

Australian Earthmoving Magazine News:


As a professional excavation and hire company, Mooloolah Posi-Track Hire is regarded as an expert in its field.

With years of experience hauling, digging, clearing and shifting earth on civil and commercial construction sites across Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, the machinery that supports their business needs to be the best in its class.

Michael Cross, owner and manager of Mooloolah Posi-Track Hire, explains why he selected the Terex PT-50 Posi-Track® mid-sized compact track loader as the key machine in his fleet.

“There are many reasons why I chose the PT-50, however it was mainly because I really like the way they are weighted. These machines have great stability – both front and back for when you are lifting, and I also really like the ground clearance.”

Because the PT-50 compact track loader uses the patented Posi-Track suspended undercarriage technology, the machine’s 2812kg operating weight is evenly distributed down to an impressive 24.1 kPa.

With such low ground pressure and excellent traction, the PT-50 loader is ideal for working on soft, wet or sensitive surfaces, as well as rocky and uneven sites.

Smooth Turf Tracks or Extreme Terrain Tracks with aggressive treads are also available for more specifically demanding sites.

“I have found the PT-50 to be reliable, with a very good power to weight ratio.” Michael continues, “Plus the ride is really comfortable, and it looks great… customers really like to see a good looking machine.”

With a 37.3 kW diesel engine providing smooth continuous power and a load-sensing hydraulic system that prevents engine stalls, it’s no surprise that Michael is impressed. The advanced Posi-Track technology provides excellent traction and floatation to give operators a smooth and comfortable ride. Easily operated with pilot-operated joystick and a comfortable operator station, the PT-50 track loader offers exceptional, reliable performance.

Now with three PT-50’s making up its fleet, Mooloolah Posi-Track Hire is able to deliver the finest service throughout the area. “We pride ourselves on only using the most durable machinery. And the PT-50 is the one machine that we trust,” said Michael.
