Terex Trucks’ upgraded articulated hauler made its first appearance on the international stage at Bauma last week. Featuring a new transmission and delivering a 5% improvement on fuel efficiency, the updated TA300 was pride of place on the company’s stand at the construction trade show in Munich, Germany.
With two additional forward gears on top of the existing four, the EP320 transmission enhances operator comfort by providing smoother gear shifting.
Now including long-life transmission fluid, the length of time between oil maintenance servicing has increased by 3,000 hours to 4,000 hours. While offering a cleaner, more efficient engine, the articulated hauler’s maximum speed has increased by 5km/h (3mph) to 55km/h (34mph).
“Bauma is the biggest trade fair for our industry,” says Paul Douglas, managing director of Terex Trucks. “It attracts all kinds of equipment from around the world, but for us, it’s all about robust articulated haulers – that’s the only product Terex Trucks manufactures. This gives us the luxury of being able to focus all our attention on this machine. We are the experts in all-things articulated hauler – and have been for many decades.”
“Terex Trucks has been investing in and making improvements to both the TA300 and TA400 articulated haulers,” continues Paul. “Both of these machines are robust, reliable and productive. Our articulated haulers have never been better and Terex Trucks has never been stronger.”
