Bauma: Terex Trucks to showcase updated TA300 articulated hauler
Upgraded machine to make its first international tradeshow appearance at bauma 2019
VISITORS to the Terex Trucks stand during bauma 2019 will have the chance to get up close to the newly upgraded TA300 articulated hauler, as well as the TA400 model. This will be the first time the TA300 track has been displayed at an international trade show and it will take pride of place on the company’s stand.
‘bauma is the world’s leading construction machinery trade fair, and as such, it’s a showcase of virtually every machine in the industry, but for Terex Trucks, it’s all about the articulated hauler,’ said Paul Douglas, managing director of Terex Trucks.
‘That’s one of the key messages we want to get across at bauma 2019 – we specialize in robust, reliable articulated haulers. We will also be discussing the investments and improvements we’ve made in our product line and our growing dealer network. All of this, which is underpinned by our long-standing expertise in the field, has helped us to make sure our articulated haulers are even more productive and reliable. Terex Trucks is the strongest it’s ever been.’
The TA300 incorporates the latest EP320 transmission from ZF as standard, which comes with eight forward gears and four reverse gears, resulting in 5% improvement in fuel efficiency, as well as enhanced performance and productivity, when compared with the previous model working in the same application.
The articulated hauler also comes with long life transmission fluid, which has helped to increase the length of time between oil maintenance intervals from 1,000h to 4,000h. The machine’s maximum speed has increased from 50km/h to 55km/h. Ultimately, this means that customers can achieve faster cycle times, reduce the cost of operation-per-tonne and minimize their fuel consumption.
‘Having recently launched an updated version of the TA300 that boasts improvements in fuel efficiency, performance, productivity and operator comfort, we see bauma 2019 as the perfect opportunity to display the hauler in front of a global audience,’ commented Mr Douglas.
‘As well as this, we’ll be using the show as a chance to inform people about our TA400, which is the biggest articulated hauler we make. In terms of maximum payload, it’s 10 tonnes (11 tons) bigger than the TA300.’
