Terex Trucks to showcase TA300 and TA400 at CONEXPO
Articulated hauler specialist Terex Trucks is bringing both the TA300 and TA400 to CONEXPO, North America’s largest construction trade show.
As part of the Volvo family, the company will be sharing a booth in Las Vegas from 10–14 March with other Volvo Group brands, including Volvo Construction Equipment, Volvo Trucks and SDLG.
Terex Trucks, which has almost 70 years’ experience developing and building off-highway haulers, will offer visitors the chance to discover the significant investments and improvements that have been made in its products, facilities, people and processes since Terex Trucks was acquired by Volvo Construction Equipment in 2015.
“North America has always been a strong market for us, so we’re looking forward to meeting current and future customers from the region, as well as further afield, at CONEXPO,” saif Paul Douglas, managing director of Terex Trucks.
“A significant proportion of the machines we make at our Motherwell facility in Scotland are distributed to customers across North America. As a company, we want to grow our business in North America, reaching new customers and expanding our strong dealer network in the region – which currently stands at 40 dealers.”
In North America, the TA300 and TA400 are sold with a three-year warranty, telematics and planned maintenance included as standard – and there are finance packages available for lease and wholesale.
One example of the recent improvements Terex Trucks has made is the product upgrade on the TA300. Since the beginning of last year, the TA300 has been manufactured with a new transmission, leading to improvements in fuel efficiency, performance, productivity and operator comfort, when compared to the previous model working in the same application.
The 28-tonne (30-ton) workhorse delivers a five percent improvement in fuel efficiency, a 5 km/h (3.1 mph) increase in speed to 55 km/h (34 mph) and an increase in the length of time between oil maintenance intervals from 1,000 to 4,000 hours.
The TA300 is also equipped with true independent front suspension as standard, further enhancing operator comfort and enabling excellent traction control and maximum productivity in the most challenging conditions.
The TA400, the largest articulated hauler on offer from Terex Trucks, has a maximum payload of 38 tonnes (41.9 tonnes) and a heaped capacity of 23.3 m³ (30.3 yd³).
Powered by a high performance, fuel efficient engine that develops a gross power of 331 kW (444 hp), the TA400 is designed to meet the demands of the most extreme operations such as quarries, mines and large-scale construction projects.
