Two Gen10 Terex ADTs for RECO Equipment

North America’s first two Generation 10 TA300 haulers bought by Terex Trucks’ original dealer in the region

RECO Equipment have become Terex Trucks’ first dealer in North America to acquire the truck manufacturer’s new Generation 10 articulated haulers. The heavy equipment distributor has recently purchased two Gen10 TA300s along with four Generation 9 TA300s.

‘Timing played a minor role in this deal, as at RECO we were looking to freshen up some of our fleet and I had it in mind that I wanted to buy six trucks,’ explained company president Reed Mahany.

‘I had a conversation with Terex Trucks and the offer came up that they had four trucks that would be common to what we already run, and there would also be two of the new version trucks to bridge the gap – this of course was very appealing.

‘With us being the lifetime Terex Trucks guys, the opportunity to be the first Gen10 dealer in the market was something we couldn’t pass up.’

Founded by Robert E. Hathaway in February 1983, RECO Equipment set up shop in the coalfields around Morristown, Ohio, with just 28 employees. The following year, after acquiring almost all the Terex parts available in Hudson, Ohio, the company serviced more than 200 Terex TS24s in eastern Ohio.

In the late 1980s, RECO expanded their operations as the economy boomed and opened facilities in Columbus and Cincinnati, before moving into the articulated hauler market in the 1990s.

Today, RECO have more than 200 employees and operate in a number of states east of the Mississippi river, including Pennsylvania, Indiana, North Carolina, Florida, Kentucky, and West Virginia.

Ready to bring their partnership with Terex Trucks into a new era, RECO received the two 30.9 US ton Generation 10 TA300s in March, alongside the four Gen9 machines.

The new Gen10 TA300 model is an EU Stage IV/Tier-4 Final emissions-compliant machine that showcases improvements in quality and durability. Made in Motherwell, Scotland, its primary purpose is to ensure that customers benefit from lower operating costs, increased performance and maximum uptime – even when operating in the toughest of terrains.

The second product to be launched by Terex Trucks since their acquisition by Volvo Construction Equipment, the hauler comes with upgraded hydraulic and electrical interfaces, as well as improved aesthetics and styling.

To aid productivity in all conditions, the engine and drivetrain have been optimally matched. Additionally, cushioned stops on the steering cylinders have been integrated to provide operators with a more comfortable ride, and the cab features an enhanced air-conditioning and ventilation system.

Moreover, for customers in the US and Canada, the Gen10 model comes with an extended three years of full machine warranty, three years planned maintenance and three years telematics as standard.
