Terex Trucks, a division of Volvo Construction Equipment, used Bauma to showcase its new TA400 41.8-ton articulated dump truck (ADT). The truck is the division’s first new product since Volvo purchased the firm from Terex in 2014, and is also the first in a series of new Generation 10 ADTs to be introduced this year.
Powered by a 444-horsepower Scania DC13 engine, the ADT uses selective catalytic reduction combined with exhaust gas regeneration to meet Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. It does not require a diesel particulate filter.
The 30-cubic-yard heaped capacity unit features upgraded hydraulic hoses, electrical interfaces, and transmission mountings over previous models.
Hydraulic component life cycles are prolonged through the use of magnetic pressure filters that reduce the risk of contaminants entering the system, improving the cleanliness of hydraulic oil.
The cab and engine feature anti-vibration mounts, and the cab has an improved air conditioning and ventilation system. In-cab machine performance displays have been improved, including transmission diagnostics on the oil quality, oil level, filter life and fault codes/service indicators.
The force-cooled multi-disc brakes are supported by an electronic activated exhaust brake and a six-stage modulating transmission retarder. A high performance transmission oil extends service intervals up to 6,000 hours.
Automatic adaptive shifting and a pre-selected two-speed transfer box provide performance and productivity in all haul conditions, says Terex Trucks.
Other features include wider, pivoting steps and platforms for easier, safer access and longer brake life cycles and extended service intervals.
