Terex Trucks’ rigid haulers working in Swedish mining industry

Swecon is expanding its machine range for the mining industry with Terex Trucks’ rigid haulers, the TR70 and TR100. “The addition of Terex Trucks’ rigid frame haulers fills a small but important gap in our product portfolio and strengthens our offering to the mining industry,” says Ove Meander, Swecon’s sales manager in north Sweden. The robust trucks are proving popular due to their simplistic design which makes them easy to drive, maintain and service. “In the longer term, there may be more sizes of trucks available when the engines are adapted to the new environmental requirements,” says Meander. “However, the machines we sell now, the TR70 and TR100, are built to maximise uptime and have a proven technology that produces results.”

 

During the summer, Swecon delivered the first Terex Trucks rigid hauler to Lars-Göran Rutqvist – a TR100 with a load capacity of 55.5 m³, a payload of 91 t and an engine that delivers 783 kW. Rutqvist commented: “We needed a rigid hauler to transport road materials in Boliden’s open pit copper mine in Gällivare. The mine has a large road network and is used day and night, all year round.”
