The Terex 82-30 FA crawler was built in USA and Scotland by Terex. It featured a 239|hp|Detroit Diesel 6-71N or the optional 6-71T Detroit engine and an Allison model CRT-5534 powershift transmission. The Scottish built models were offered with a Cummins engine option however, these were never imported to the USA nor were the USA built versions offered with the Cummins engine option.
==Model history== Introduced in 1967 as the Euclid model 82-30FA it was later designated as the Terex 82-30FA after 1969 when General Motors renamed the division Terex. The 82-30FA, 82-30FAM (military version) and the rare FAT (Turbocharged) model continued until about 1973 in the USA when it was replaced by the 8V-71 powered 82-30B. Sources indicate the Scottish 82-30 FA production ran until 1986.
