Terex Trucks goes all in as it reveals the new Gen10 TA400 and launches a new warranty offering for customers at CONEXPO-CON/AGG (March 7-11).
Dedicated to building machines that withstand the test of time, Terex Trucks draws on more than half a century of design innovation to create its reliable and robust haulers. The Generation 10 TA400 is revealed to visitors at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2017 in Las Vegas. And with confidence in the performance of its products, the Scotland-based manufacturer is also upping the ante with the launch of an extended warranty package. To ensure customers benefit from a low total cost of ownership, Terex Trucks will unveil its new 6,000-hour warranty on all Factory-Approved Terex Trucks parts.
“Listening to what customers want, Terex Trucks has made various progressive moves over the last few years to make certain the machines and products not only maximize uptime but also provide a significant return on investment,” says Paul Douglas, director and general manager at Terex Trucks.
Terex Trucks’ show-stopping Generation 10 TA400 will take center stage at the company’s stand at CONEXPO/CON-AGG. The EU Stage IV/Tier-4 Final emissions-compliant machine is the new generation hauler that the Scotland-based company has produced. It offers durability and quality to ensure that customers benefit from lower operating costs and increased performance – even in the toughest of terrains. The 38-tonne capacity articulated hauler is also the first product to be launched by Terex Trucks since its acquisition by Volvo Construction Equipment.
Made in Motherwell, the Gen10 TA400, which is the largest in Terex Trucks’ articulated hauler family, features upgraded hydraulic and electrical interfaces, new drop box and improved aesthetics in order to maximize the uptime of the dump truck. To ensure productivity in all haul conditions, the Gen10 TA400’s engine and drivetrain have been optimally matched, utilizing automatic adaptive shifting and a pre-selected two-speed transfer box (drop box). Cushioned stops on the steering cylinders have been integrated to provide operators with a more comfortable ride, and the cab also features an enhanced air conditioning and ventilation system.
With a manufacturer-client relationship that goes beyond the point of purchase, Terex Trucks understands the significant investment customers put into acquiring machines and the company is committed to offering the very best aftermarket support available to maximize operational output. To back this commitment, Terex Trucks will introduce a two-year or 6,000-hour warranty – whichever comes first – on all Factory-Approved parts.
Designed with precision engineering to work in tandem with all other core components of the off-highway machines, the genuine parts are manufactured to achieve continuous optimum performance and a longer service life.
“Terex Trucks will always strive to offer competitive packages to support products and let customers know that we’re in their corner,” says Matt Deloglos, director of sales and marketing Americas at Terex Trucks.
Versatility for arduous environments
Also on display at CONEXPO/CON-AGG will be Terex Trucks’ proven performer, the TR60 rigid hauler. With a payload of 55 tonnes, the versatile dump truck is designed to haul through arduous environments. Fitted with the Cummins six-cylinder 19-litre engine that boasts gross power of 522 kW (700 hp) and maximum torque of 2,981 Nm, the TR60’s drivetrain gear reduction provides excellent rimpull, powering the rigid hauler up the steepest of gradients, while a high capacity haul body makes for low retention carry-back and cleaner dumping. A popular model, the TR60 offers solid performance in a wide range of hauling applications – from mining sites to large construction and earthmoving projects.
“CONEXPO-CON/AGG will see Terex Trucks make its Las Vegas debut as a stand-alone brand so it’s only right to do it big – it's the ideal platform to launch the extended two-year warranty on Factory-Approved parts. Our commitment has always been to ensure customers are satisfied with the performance of our haulers, which is why we have made major investments in building our products to the highest standard and we’re continuously making them easier to support,” says Paul Douglas.
He adds: “We’re now in the new era of Terex Trucks and looking forward welcoming customers and our friends in the press to our booth where they’ll be met by the Generation 10 TA400 and the TR60.”
Terex Trucks will be at CONEXPO/CON-AGG in Gold Lot in booth G3987, from March 7-11. Product specialists and senior managers will be available in the booth to demonstrate how the company has strengthened its dealer network, increased the worldwide availability of parts, and enhanced its products and customer service solutions.
There will also be a fun area on the stand where visitors will have the chance to guide a remote-controlled hauler around an assault course. There will be a prize at the end of each day for the person with the quickest time.
