Terex Trucks set to expand throughout Russia
“Russian customers are very cost conscious,” says John Rotherford, global key accounts director. “That‘s why our TA400 articulated hauler does particularly well there, as it ensures low cost per tonne and maximum productivity. The TA300 is also popular among Russian customers. It‘s reliable and easy to operate, both these factors help to drive the majority of purchasing decisions. Looking beyond products, one of the key things Terex Trucks offers (that many manufacturers do not) is dedicated on-site maintenance and support services. This is especially valuable in Russia because the country is so vast, meaning that dealers‘ branches are often based hundreds of miles away from their customers.“
A popular choice in mines and quarries, the TA300 is a sturdy piece of equipment. It is powered by a Scania DC9 engine and has a maximum payload of 28 tonnes, maximum torque of 1880 Nm and can achieve gross power of 276 kW. It is equipped with independent front suspension as standard, resulting in excellent traction control and operator comfort. Since August last year, the TA300 has incorporated the new EP320 transmission as standard, which helps to deliver a 5 % improvement in fuel efficiency and an enhanced performance. The upgraded transmission 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.
The TA400, the largest articulated hauler on offer from Terex Trucks, has a maximum payload of 38 tonnes and a heaped capacity of 23.3 m3. The Allison HD4560 transmission boasts high performance oil and up to 6000 hours between service intervals. Both machines come with hydrostatic power steering and all-hydraulic braking systems, helping to ensure a safe and comfortable ride.
