Terramac to introduce versatile crawler carriers for landfill management at WasteExpo
Terramac is preparing for an exciting exhibit at WasteExpo, booth #2463. Terramac plans to showcase how its crawler carriers are redefining landfill management of municipal solid waste as well as feature its latest advancements.
"As a first-time exhibitor, we are looking forward to introducing our carriers as an efficient and environmentally sound solution for the waste industry," says Matt Slater, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Terramac. "Our machines provide operators with the consistency and power that landfills require for a full day of operation while reducing overall stress on the landfill infrastructure."
Terramac will educate on how landfill operations can capitalize on the versatility of its rubber tracked crawler carriers. Terramac carriers exert low ground pressure, which allows the units to easily maneuver across landfills with rough, wet or uneven ground conditions to accomplish tasks such as hauling dirt for daily cover, performing cell maintenance and various other landfill restoration projects.
"The stability and traction of Terramac units are ideal for every landfill phase. Our machines perform many tasks and easily adapt to changing ground conditions. They serve many purposes, which makes them a valuable asset to landfills and an all-in-one equipment solution for keeping operations and revenue flowing," says Slater.
Terramac also plans to showcase its customization options at WasteExpo. Terramac carriers can be outfitted with a wide array of landfill support equipment, such as industrial spray applicators for applying alternative daily cover or hydroseeding units for reclamation during landfill closures.
Furthermore, Terramac's innovative RT14R model will be on display. The RT14R offers even more versatility with a 360-degree rotating upper frame that allows it to dump 28,000-pound loads with a simple straight-in, rotate, dump and straight-out approach. Any added stress on the underlying layers due to turning treads is eliminated.

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
