    Any operators with seat time in both? Opinions?

    Terex has a fixed cutting edge and a goofy strike of plate which moves with the floor.

    500 Cats built for every Terex.

    Found a 2003 Terex with the 8.7L Navstar (Detroit). Not sure I have any interest but this one only has 1200 hours. It's a little shy of a cream puff (stored inside)

    Never been around any.

    Already own a 613

    got a 2006 615c series 2 weaker than late 613 I have operated but I think still be my choice at 3 times the price of terex self loader 500 cats for every terex for a reason. one careful open minded strict to detail operator might due fine but varied guys on it prolly go cat

    Go with the Terex if it's not to late. The Hancox bowel on the Terex is away faster to load.
