Terex®  Skid Steer Loader

  • Manufacturer: Terex
  • Model Number: R185S

Terex® skid steer loaders are built to get loading, picking and carrying, grading, back dragging or snow removal jobs done faster and more efficiently.The R185S radial lift path skid steer loader boasts a rated operating capacity of 1,850 lb at 50-percent tipping load (3,700 lb). Loaders engineered with a radial lift path, meaning the loader arms raise in an arc pattern, excel at digging and grading applications. Another benefit of the radial lift path configuration is visibility around the unit it provides to operators, especially when working around existing infrastructure such as homes and in back yards.

This unit’s 50-hp Perkins diesel turbocharged engine combined with load sensing, variable flow hydraulics gives R185S operators 8,453 lb of tractive effort to push material, dig, grade and drive-through the toughest jobsite conditions, yet conserve power when requirements are less demanding. For quick cycle times, a powerful drive train with optional 2-speed transmission propels Terex skid steer loaders to the fastest top speeds in their class — up to 12 mph. Terex skid steer loaders also offer increased fuel capacities over other brands, a 25-gal fuel tank on the R185S, that translates to longer operating times between refueling.

This unit weighs in at 6,365 lb operating weight and achieves 116 in of lift height, as well as nearly 22 in of reach to maximize productivity. The R185S also boasts 10.5-in ground clearance and 28.4° rear angle of departure. These features improve the ability of the machine to traverse soft, uneven terrain, making the workday more productive and less frustrating.
