Updated Terex TA300 makes debut at bauma
Terex Trucks’ 28-tonne upgraded TA300 articulated hauler made its first international trade show appearance earlier this month at bauma 2019.
Representatives from Terex were at the event showing visitors how the company’s two articulated haulers – the TA300 and TA400 – deliver low total cost of ownership and high productivity on jobs including large scale construction projects, infrastructure developments, quarries and mines.
“Terex Trucks has been investing in and making improvements to both the TA300 and TA400 articulated haulers,” Paul Douglas, managing director of Terex Trucks. “Both of these machines are robust, reliable and productive. Our articulated haulers have never been better and Terex Trucks has never been stronger.”
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 1,000 to 4,000 hours. The hauler’s maximum speed has also increased to 55 km/h, up from 50 km/h. Ultimately, this means that customers can achieve faster cycle times, reduce the cost of operation per tonne and minimize their fuel consumption.
