Terex Trucks‘ recently updated TA300 articulated hauler will soon be making its first international tradeshow appearance at bauma 2019. The Terex Trucks team will be at the event to show visitors how the company‘s two articulated haulers – the TA300 and TA400 – deliver low total cost of ownership and high productivity at jobs including large-scale construction projects, infrastructure developments and quarries.
Since August, the TA300 has incorporated the new EP320 transmission, which comes with two additional forward gears – eight in total – as well as four reverse gears. This helps to ensure smoother gear shifting and thereby superior operator comfort. In addition to this, the TA300 now delivers a 5 % improvement in fuel efficiency, as well as enhanced performance, productivity and operator comfort. It also now comes with long life transmission fluid, which has helped to increase the length of time between oil maintenance intervals from 1000 to 4000 hours. The hauler‘s maximum speed has also increased to 55 km/h (34 m/h), up from 50 km/h (31 m/h). Ultimately, this means that customers can achieve faster cycle times, reduce the cost of operation per tonne and minimize their fuel consumption. “The TA300 is one of our staple products, hence why we worked long and hard to make it even better for our customers,” says Paul Douglas, Managing Director of Terex Trucks. “The upgraded TA300 was rigorously tested for nearly two years internally and by operators on real job sites, working in a variety of conditions.”
The TA400 – the biggest articulated hauler manufactured by Terex Trucks – is designed to meet the demands of the most extreme operations. This robust machine excels at delivering cost-effective production at large-scale construction projects, quarries and mines.
