Terberg's new yard tractor
Terberg has announced a new generation of yard tractors which it claims is "even more robust and durable than the YT182/YT222 and even easier to maintain and update".
The new models are compatible with all power options (diesel, electric and, later, also hydrogen) and ready for the future.
The new Terberg YT Series is designed for use at ports, distribution centres, industrial sites and airports.
The new Terberg YT Series is a multifunctional platform and also forms the new platform for the automated AutoTUGTM. This range enables Terberg to contribute to a cleaner future, help reduce fuel consumption using state-of-the-art engine technology, and make transport more sustainable, according to the company.
The new electronics architecture is based on the CAN bus and supports future updates over the air. With the Terberg Connect software, users can gather valuable operational data from the yard tractors to optimise their fleet management. This makes it possible to track vehicle movements and schedule preventive maintenance to maximise the availability of the tractors.
Terberg is also introducing a number of improvements to facilitate day-to-day operations and improve productivity. For example, the fuel tank and AdBlue tank are located on the same side, and the fuel tank capacity is significantly higher than before. The upgraded hydraulics provide improved functional safety and better control of the lowering of the lifting frame. There is now also a sensor to measure the fifth wheel height.
Deliveries of the initial models, the YT193 and YT223, will start in the northern summer of 2020.
