Taylor Machine Works

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Taylor Machine Works is setting a new standard in reach stacker container handling. The new TS-9972 Reach Stacker is the most durable, comfortable, and user-friendly truck in the industry. The TS-9972 has all the durability and dependability that you have come to expect from Taylor.

TS-9972

The TS-9972 has a first row rated capacity of 99,000-lb in the first, second, third, and fourth tiers, and 90,400-lb in the fifth tiers for 9.5-ft containers. Because of the multiple row capacity, please refer to the TS-9972 Capacity Chart for further information.

TS-9972 w/3 Hook Attachment (H3)

The 3 Hook Attachment was primarily meant for the emerging wind-power industry, but after extensive study, Taylor found that the TS-9972′s capabilities were not limited to one industry.

TS-9972 w/1 Hook Attachment (H1)

The 1 Hook Attachment provides a single point of lift and attaches directly to the upper boom. This attachment is not rotatable, but the hook does swivel.

Cropac Orders 22 Terex® Cranes at ConExpo 2011

CROPAC EQUIPMENT ORDERS 22 TEREX® CRANES AT CONEXPO 2011

ConExpo, Las Vegas, March 30, 2011 – Terex Cranes has announced an order for 22 cranes placed by Cropac Equipment Inc, Canada, in a transaction valued at more than $20 million (US), signed last week at ConExpo, Las Vegas.

A significant share of Cropac’s investment is eight new Terex® Roadmaster 9000 truck mounted cranes, the first of which is to be delivered in May this year. The seven other units will follow successively at the rate of one machine per month. Other cranes ordered include one Terex® AC 140, one AC 250, and two AC 350/6 all terrain cranes, as well as several rough terrain and truck crane models.

“The Roadmaster 9000 is the result of our highly customer-focused approach to product development,” says Jay Barth, Product Marketing Manager for Terex Truck Cranes. “This new model is engineered to meet the diverse requirements of a wide customer base. Its design represents a collaboration between Cropac and Terex to ensure acceptance in Canadian and Northern US markets.”

“This new order highlights the success of a strong and loyal 20-year partnership between family- owned Cropac Equipment Inc. and Terex Cranes. It supports our strategic initiative to grow our business in Canada. In addition, Cropac will continue to add service, support and new locations to further support this initiative,” says Frank Bardonaro Vice President, Managing Director Terex Cranes Americas.

For Cropac Equipment Inc., participation in the customer-focused development of this new model has meant that the company has been able to help define a product to meet expected strong market demand.

“At Cropac we want to provide our customers the solutions they need, when they need them – rapidly, hence our decision to order eight Roadmaster models at one time,” says Bill Finkle, President, Cropac Equipment Inc. “Taking part in the development process has provided us with the advantage of already knowing that our customers’ demand for this new model is high. We are fully convinced that this is the right crane for our market”.

Taylor Introduces the New XC Series

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

An exciting new XC Series of cushion tire industrial trucks has been introduced by Taylor Machine Works, Inc. of Louisville, Mississippi. These powerful cushion tire trucks are manufactured for productivity; they provide significant lift capacities in a remarkably compact space and are specifically designed for applications with limited maneuvering space plus significant heavy lift requirements.

The six XC models provide lifting capacities of 18,000 to 35,000 pounds at 24 inch load centers on 56 inch wide all-welded chassis. The XC chassis are built on three wheel bases: 80 inch for the 18,000, 20,000, and 22,000 pound capacities; 88 inches for the 25,000 and 30,000 pound capacities; and 98 inch for the 35,000 pound capacity truck. With the exception of the XC-350L, width over tires is 56.5 inches; over tire width for the XC-350L is 60.5 inches. The cast counterweight features single-bolt mounting for ease of service.

Standard engine for the XC Series is a GM 5.7 liter, 125 Hp, V8 LPG model. It is a propane gas injected, low emission engine with a oxy catalytic converter. (A Cummins 4.5 110Hp, Tier IIIturbocharged, charged air cooled diesel engine is available as an option.) The LPG engine muffler is mounted to the engine with exhaust directed through the rear of the truck. Standard is a CANbus engine diagnostic unit providing information to the dash-mounted display panel.

The 3-speed, fully reversing, powershift transmission includes inching and electric roll shift. Automatic Powershift Control is standard. The drive axle has wet disc brakes. The wet disc service brakes are internally force-cooled, hydraulically actuated. The brake oil and hydraulic oil are cooled in a cooler separate from the transmission cooler. The parking brake is mounted to the transmission and is operated by a dash-mounted button control.

The planetary drive axle is bolt-mounted to the chassis frame. The single-cylinder steer axle features legendary Taylor quality and ruggedness. The hydraulic system features transmission driven gear-type pumps, two-section control valve, and chrome-plated cylinder rods with self-adjusting packing. An accumulator in the lift circuit, dual wire-mesh strainers, and a replaceable 10-micron return-line filter element in the hydraulic tank are also included.

The 12-volt electrical system includes a 105 AMP generator (130 AMP for the optional diesel engine). Circuit breakers are utilized rather than fuses, and the high visibility T-style dash includes heavy duty, color coded wiring. Standard on the XC are: work lights, tail lights, turn signal indicators, two key-actuated amber strobe lights, electric horn and forward and reverse alarms, operator fan, two panoramic view mirrors, fire extinguisher, and black, nonmarking poly tires.

The cooling system incorporates three coolers for the standard LPG engine: transmission cooler, engine coolant cooler, and separate hydraulic/brake oil cooler. (For trucks with the optional diesel engine, a charged-air cooler is added.)

The operator station reflects the quality ergonomic design for which Taylor is known. The driver’s guard includes a bronze-tinted, polycarbonate Skyview window. The multi adjustable vinyl air-suspension seat provides comfort and includes 16°left/ 24°right rotation. The performance-proven electric joy-stick has multiple adjustments for operator comfort. It is mounted to the seat’s right armrest and controls all hydraulic functions. Full hydrostatic on-demand steering is standard. The steering wheel tilts, and the tilt-down instrument panel provides ready access to instruments and electrical wiring. Two wide integral nonslip steps assure easy access to the operator station.

The slope design of the counterweight, the clean lines of the T-shaped dash, and through-the-mast view provide outstanding visibility for the operator.

The exceptional quality of the design and manufacture of the XC Series lift trucks from Taylor Machine Works is matched by the outstanding parts and service support extended by Sudden Service, Inc., the Taylor after~market parts and service support organization, and Taylor dealers located throughout North America and around the world.
