The brand new and recently released CAS® tier 4 TR20 is among the most versatile off-road slingers on the market. Built upon the same platform as our best-selling CAS AT7, the TR20 comes standard with rubber tracks or the recently available metal track option. Equipped with the proven CAS proprietary wireless remote system, Slinger and operator can be up to 900 feet apart.
BUILT TOUGH FOR OFF-ROAD
The TR20 was built for the nastiest off-road environments and the steepest of terrain. With the TR20’s transmission lock, this slinger can lock into position on a hillside as it slings material in difficult hard to reach areas. A tremendous benefit of the TR20 is the low ground pressure the tracks provide. Due to the five “bogeys” supporting the tracks, the weight is evenly distributed, which allows the TR20 to only emit a mere 4-7 pounds of ground pressure per square inch. This “light as a feather” footprint, makes the TR20 ideal for operation on the most sensitive terrain such as on beaches, marshlands, golf courses, wetlands, and/or protected habitats.
Located in Eugene, Oregon, the TR20 is handcrafted in the USA with the highest quality workmanship and materials available. Powered by a 225 hp CAT® engine, the smooth and responsive HAVVE hydraulic system, combined with the optional 18-inch wide placing conveyor belt (the widest in the industry), makes for a highly productive and effective slinging machine.
Recent testing demonstrated that the TR20’s 10-yard hopper was able to unload its filled to the brim payload of ¾-inch minus gravel in approximately 1 minute and 45 seconds at full production. This level of production will challenge the most active contractors to keep this Slinger packed full of material. It is for this reason that most contractors are extremely impressed when they first see CAS slingers like the TR20 operating. Hearing comments such as, “Where has this been all my life?” is commonplace at the CAS demo yard.
