Articulated hauler specialist Terex Trucks has recently introduced its new EU Stage V emission-compliant TA300 and TA400 dump trucks. Both haulers now boast a reduction of up to 7% in fuel consumption when compared to the Stage IV engine. Customers in Europe will also benefit from the haulers’ strong engine performance and excellent responsive power in all conditions. No matter the application – whether that’s construction, quarrying or mining – the new Stage V engine allows for faster response at all engine speeds and an efficient combustion performance, thanks to its Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT). All of this boosts operators’ efficiency while keeping the total cost of ownership low.
“The Stage V compliant engine for the TA300 and TA400 is part of our focus on delivering efficient, productive, high-quality and durable articulated haulers, while keeping the total cost of ownership down,” says Kenny Price, Regional Sales Manager for EMEA at Terex Trucks.
Strong performance in demanding work environments
Just like the Terex Trucks Stage IV haulers, the new Stage V TA300 and TA400 are equipped with Scania DC9 and DC13 engines. Thanks to a drivetrain that’s perfectly matched with the engine, the trucks deliver a powerful performance and excel in demanding work environments. For heightened levels of operational safety and control, an engine exhaust brake is installed as standard; this also reduces brake component wear. The haulers also come with three-stage aspirated air filtration, which provides increased engine protection to lengthen maintenance intervals. All of this helps deliver strong, durable engine performance and keeps the total cost of ownership low.
Reliable machines for all global markets
The TA300 and TA400 Stage V engine’s effective aftertreatment system uses selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, removing the need for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). This way, no exhaust gas is returned to the combustion chamber of the engine, helping to improve efficiency and durability of the machine. The diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a large-capacity diesel particulate filer (DPF) ensure the engine meets the latest EU emission standards.
Terex Trucks offers fully compliant, cost-efficient haulers to all global markets, with the new European Stage V system complementing the Tier 4 Final range of articulated haulers for the North American market and the Tier 2 range designed for the non-regulated markets across the world.
Better than ever before
The 28-tonne (30-ton) TA300 has a maximum payload of 28 tonnes (30.9 tons) and a headed capacity of 17.5 m³ (22.9 yd³). The hauler comes with a maximum speed of 55 km/h (34 mph), eight forward gears as well as four reverse gears. This increases operational efficiencies and helps to ensure smoother gear shifting and thereby higher levels of operator comfort. In addition, Terex Trucks engineers increased the length of time between oil maintenance intervals from 1,000 to 4,000 hours. All of this means that customers can be more productive, achieving faster cycle times, lower cost per tonne and reduced carbon emissions.
The TA400, the largest articulated hauler on offer from Terex Trucks, has a maximum payload of 38 tonnes (41.9 tons) and a heaped capacity of 23.3 m³ (30.3 yd³). It’s designed to meet the demands of the most extreme operations such as quarries, mines and large-scale construction projects. The planetary gear transmission provides smooth, efficient gear shifting for optimized fuel consumption and reduced cost of operation, via its 6,000 hours fluid maintenance interval. Ground level test points and a fully tilting cab, combined with an electronically raised hood, ensure ease of service and maximum uptime.
“Over the last six years under the ownership of Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE), we’ve made substantial improvements to the quality and performance of the TA300 and TA400,” says Paul Douglas, Director and General Manager of Terex Trucks. “We’re also heavily investing in the factory, systems, employees, distribution network and aftermarket services. We’ve come a long way over the last few years, and there has never been a better time to invest in a Terex Trucks articulated hauler.”
