Terex Trucks’ recently upgraded TA300 articulated hauler will be presented at the Balmoral Show – Northern Ireland’s largest agricultural event – between May 15th-18th. Sleator Plant, Terex Trucks’ dealer in Northern Ireland, will proudly showcase the recently upgraded 28-tonne (30.9 ton) hauler on their stand: D9. The updated machine incorporates a new transmission that leads to a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency. It allows operators to be more productive, achieving faster cycle times, lower cost per tonne and reduced carbon emissions.
“We are really excited to exhibit the upgraded TA300 hauler at the show, it will be the cornerstone of our stand,” says Jonathan Campbell, Dealer Principal at Sleator Plant. “It will be impressive for visitors to see the robust TA300 up close. We want to show that we are at the forefront of the construction industry, our business is all about innovation and pushing boundaries – and that is something we share with Terex Trucks.”
“The TA300 and Sleator Plant will be great representatives for Terex Trucks at the Balmoral Show,” says Paul Douglas, Managing Director of Terex Trucks. “The TA300 is a proven performer that delivers low total cost of ownership and high productivity. This articulated hauler is simple to operate, robust and easy to maintain. It’s great that visitors will be able to see the machine up close and learn about the latest product improvements and customer benefits, such as improved fuel efficiency and increased productivity.”
Focus on: articulated haulers
Since August 2018, the TA300 has incorporated a new transmission. The updated machine now delivers a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency, a 5 km/h (3.1 mph) increase in speed to 55 km/h (34 mph), an extended maintenance period and enhanced performance when compared with the previous model. All of this means that customers can be more productive, achieving faster cycle times, lower cost per tonne and reduced carbon emissions.
The TA300’s new transmission comes with eight forward gears as well as four reverse gears, higher overall gear ratio spread, equal ratio steps between gears, and optimized gear shifting with partial load shifts. These features mean that the upgraded TA300 offers lower fuel consumption with smoother gear shifting and thereby higher levels of operator comfort. The TA300 also now comes with long life transmission fluid, increasing the length of time between oil maintenance intervals from 1,000 to 4,000 hours.
Terex Trucks also manufactures the TA400, a 38-tonne (41.9 ton) articulated hauler which is used for hauling excavated rock, moving processed materials and removing overburden. Due to its ability to effectively traverse established haul roads quickly, even in adverse conditions, the TA400 is the ideal hauling solution for customers who need even more power and capacity.
