The Motherwell, Scotland-headquartered, globally renowned articulated and rigid hauler manufacturer Terex Trucks was launching its new Stage IV compliant TA400 ADT during the Bauma 2016 trade fair. Besides the new generation 10 hauler’s lineup the firm was also showing popular 65ton TR70 rigid dump truck.
Terex Trucks has introduced magnetic pressure filters that reduce the risk of contaminants entering the system – this will prolong hydraulic components lifecycle. They also improve the cleanliness of the hydraulic oil.
Enhancing safety has also been key, with a focus on the force-cooled multi-disc brakes.Supported by an electronic activated exhaust brake and a six-stage modulating transmission retarder, the TA400 benefits from longer brake component lifecycles.
The transmission now features high performance oil that extends time between service intervals to 6,000 hours, and the powerful drivetrain maintains traction in even the most difficult terrain thanks to longitudinal and limited slip transverse differential locks.
The Stage IV system on the TA400 features the latest generation Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), combined with Exhaust Gas Regeneration (EGR) technology and a Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT).
