Terex Trucks is readying the launch of new EU Stage V versions of its TA300 and TA400 articulated haulers for the fast-approaching Hillhead Digital event.
The machines have been updated with an EU Stage V emission-compliant engine – and now deliver an improvement in fuel efficiency, an even stronger performance, as well as low total cost of ownership, the company says.
Both haulers come with a reduction of up to 7% in fuel consumption when compared with the Stage IV engine, according to Terex Trucks. Customers in Europe will also benefit from the haulers’ strong engine performance and excellent responsive power in all conditions.
Equipped with a Variable Geometry Turbo, the new Stage V engine allows for faster response at all engine speeds and an efficient combustion performance, according to the company. This helps improve operators’ efficiency while keeping the total cost of ownership low.
The TA300 and TA400 Stage V engine’s effective aftertreatment system uses selective catalytic reduction technology, removing the need for exhaust gas recirculation. This way, no exhaust gas is returned to the combustion chamber of the engine, helping to improve efficiency and durability of the machine. The diesel oxidation catalyst and a large-capacity diesel particulate filer ensure the engine meets the latest EU emission standards.
Kenny Price, Regional Sales Manager for EMEA at Terex Trucks, said: “Introducing the Stage V compliant engine for the TA300 and TA400 is part of our focus on delivering efficient, productive, high-quality and durable articulated haulers, while keeping the total cost of ownership down.
“We’re excited about presenting the new Stage V haulers to customers at Hillhead Digital.”
Just like the Terex Trucks Stage IV haulers, the new Stage V TA300 and TA400 are equipped with Scania DC9 and DC13 engines. Thanks to a drivetrain that is matched with the engine, the trucks deliver a powerful performance and excel in demanding work environments. For heightened levels of operational safety and control, an engine exhaust brake is installed as standard, which also reduces brake component wear.
The haulers also come with three-stage aspirated air filtration, which provides increased engine protection to lengthen maintenance intervals. All of this helps deliver strong, durable engine performance and keeps the total cost of ownership low.
The new Stage V TA300 and TA400 engines are also linked to Terex Trucks’ Haul Track telematics system, which allows customers to have visibility and control of the haulers, according to the company. They can access machine GPS location and tracking together with a range of downloadable daily performance reports such as machine hours worked, engine speed, idle time and system fault code alerts. This helps customers to plan maintenance more efficiently, maximises uptime and prolongs component lifecycles.
The first Stage V 28-t-payload TA300 and 38-t-payload TA400 are already rolling off the production line and will be delivered to the first customers in Europe from March, according to Terex Trucks.
Terex Trucks will present its new EU Stage V emission-compliant TA300 and TA400 dump trucks at the Hillhead Digital 2021 exhibition from March 30-31.
