A new generation of yard tractors has been announced which are compatible with diesel, electric and hydrogen to help meet the sustainability goals of ports and terminals.

The new Terberg YT Series tractors are designed to be more robust and durable, plus easier to maintain and update than the YT182 and YT222. Deliveries of the initial models, the YT193 and YT223, will start the summer of 2020 with diesel and electric options. The company later aim to develop a hydrogen option.

These yard tractors also form the new platform for the automated AutoTUGTM. This range enables Terberg to contribute to a cleaner future, help reduce fuel consumption using advanced engine technology, and make transport more sustainable.

Terberg’s YT Series design gives maintenance fitters quick and easy access to mechanical and electronic components. For example, the entire dashboard can be removed or refitted in minutes. Covers, bumpers and windows are easily replaceable if they are damaged. The efficient design reduces the time and cost of maintenance and repairs.

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 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.
