Terex will launch its new generation of articulated trucks at Bauma, in Germany, later this year.

The Generation 10, 38 tonne TA400 articulated dump truck will be launched at the event.

The machine, the largest in in the articulated range has a number of improvements in quality and durability, Terex stated, and has been designed as part of a major product renewal program.

The durability of truck components as well as upgrading hydraulic hoses, electrical interfaces, transmission mountings and brake pipes have been a major focus.

 In order to prolong hydraulic component lifecycles, Terex Trucks has also introduced magnetic pressure filters to reduce the risk of contaminants entering the system, improving hydraulic oil cleanliness.

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,” Terex said.

It features automatic adaptive shifting and a pre-selected two-speed transfer box for greater productivity in all operational conditions.

The new Generation 10 TA400 introduces the Stage IV compliant series of engines for the European market.

A Stage IV system features the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), combined with Exhaust Gas Regeneration (EGR) technology and a Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT).

Its new design has also removed the need for a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), with all trucks fully compliant with the new European Stage IV system.

Greater operator comfort has been part of the new trucks’ design.

Anti-vibration mounts for the engine and cabin, as well as cushioned stops on the steering cylinders have been integrated, and the cab features an improved air conditioning and ventilation system.

Machine performance information has also been improved, including transmission diagnostics that informs the operator on the status of the machine, including the oil quality, oil level, filter life, and fault codes/service indication.
