This story was published before Terex Trucks announced that it was withdrawing from ConExoo because of the coronavirus.
Articulated hauler specialist Terex Trucks is bringing both the TA300 and TA400 to ConExpo, North America’s largest construction trade show.
As part of the Volvo family, the company will be sharing a booth in Las Vegas with other Volvo Group brands including Volvo Construction Equipment, Volvo Trucks and SDLG.
Visitors to the company’s F3432 booth (fairgrounds) will have the chance to take a closer look at both the TA300 and TA400 articulated haulers and discover the significant investments and improvements that have been made in the products, facilities, people and processes since Terex Trucks was acquired by Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) in 2015.
The 28-tonne (30-ton) TA300 has been manufactured with a new transmission, leading to improvements in fuel efficiency, performance, productivity and operator comfort, when compared to the previous model working in the same application.
The TA400, the largest articulated hauler on offer from Terex Trucks, has a maximum payload of 38 tonnes (41.9 tons) and a heaped capacity of 23.3 m³ (30.3 yd³). Powered by a high performance, fuel efficient engine that develops a gross power of 331 kW (444 hp), the TA400 is designed to meet the demands of the most extreme operations such as quarries, mines and large-scale construction projects.
Over the show period, Terex’s team will be there to discuss everything from how Terex Trucks’ haulers deliver low total cost of ownership, to expansion plans, current and future product investments and why North America is a strong market for the company.
“North America has always been a strong market for us, so we’re looking forward to meeting current and future customers from the region, as well as further afield, at ConExpo,” says Paul Douglas, Managing Director of Terex Trucks.
He added, “A significant proportion of the machines we make at our Motherwell facility in Scotland are distributed to customers across North America. As a company, we want to grow our business in North America, reaching new customers and working with our expanding strong dealer network in the region – which currently stands at 40 dealers – to deliver an even better service.”
A closer look at the TA300 and TA400 is not all that the Terex Trucks booth is offering, there will be a giant Jenga and beat the buzzer game, with daily prizes for the fastest time on the buzzer! “ConExpo is a showcase of virtually every machine in the industry – but for Terex Trucks, it’s all about the articulated hauler,” concludes Paul. “The articulated hauler is the only product Terex Trucks develops – so we’re able to focus all our attention on this machine.”
