Terex Trucks has its sights set on North American expansion

Terex Trucks, the Scottish articulated hauler manufacturer, has big plans for North America. The company wants to expand its already 35-strong North American dealer network, bringing its TA300 and TA400 machines to even more customers throughout the region.

 With the way things are going, America – the ‘land of opportunity’ – will soon become known as the ‘land of construction’. Billions of dollars have been ploughed into projects to create new buildings, roads, and pipelines throughout the country. According to Dodge Data & Analytics, US construction projects started this year will carry a combined value of $808 billion (£612 billion GBP). Also, at the moment, oil pipeline companies are doing particularly well because major renovation work is underway in and around British Columbia in Canada.

Given the rising demand for robust construction equipment, Terex Trucks has decided to focus more attention on the North American market. “Historically, North America has always been a strong market for us,” says Robert Franklin, Sales & Marketing Director, Americas. “A significant proportion of the machines we make at our Motherwell facility are distributed to customers across this region. As a company, we want to grow our business in North America, reaching new customers and working with our dealer network to deliver an even better service.”

Market trends

“Our TA300 articulated hauler does especially well in North America,” says Robert. “In fact, keeping up with demand is a challenge because it’s just thatpopular! Towards the end of last year, the TA300 underwent an upgrade and it now includes the new EP320 transmission. It comes with two additional forward gears – eight in total – as well as four reverse gears. This helps to ensure smoother gear shifting and thereby superior operator comfort. In addition to this, the TA300 now delivers a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency, as well as enhanced performance, productivity and operator comfort. We’ve already sold several of these machines in North America. The demand for the TA400 has picked up a lot recently too, owing to the various large-scale infrastructure projects happening throughout the region.”

Today, Terex Trucks has 35 dealers in North America, but the company is keen to sign more in specific regions. “Colorado, Louisiana and Alabama are target areas for Terex Trucks, as is Ontario in Canada,” says Robert. “The dealers we already have in place are exceptional. Their industry experience, together with their technical expertise and willingness to invest in training, means that customer satisfaction is consistently high. Over the coming months and years, we want to expand our footprint and reach even more customers.”

Customer feedback

“Based on customer feedback, fuel efficiency is a big part of the reason why customers choose to go with Terex Trucks over our competitors,” explains Robert. Both the TA300 and TA400 are extremely fuel efficient and meet the requirements of North American emissions legislation without a diesel particulate filter (DPF). This is achieved via the latest generation selective catalytic reduction (SCR), combined with exhaust gas regeneration (EGR) technology and a variable geometry turbo (VGT).

Key features

Beyond fuel efficiency, there are many other benefits that come with Terex Trucks articulated haulers. The TA300, designed to deliver in even the most challenging conditions, is a firm favorite among customers working in quarries and on infrastructure developments. Powered by a Scania DC9 engine, this articulated hauler has a maximum payload of 30.9 tons (28 tonnes), maximum torque of 1309 lbf ft (1880 Nm) and can achieve gross power of 370 hp (276 kW). The TA400, Terex Trucks’ largest articulated hauler, is the perfect fit for customers working on large-scale construction projects and mines. With a maximum payload of 41.9 tons (38 tonnes) and a heaped capacity of 30.3 yd3(23.3 m3), it can put in a serious performance. Both machines also come with hydrostatic power steering and all hydraulic braking systems, helping to ensure a safe and comfortable ride.

CAT REDESIGNED G SERIES CARRIES ON 777 LEGACY WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR HIGH PRODUCTION, FUEL EFFICIENCY, AND OPERATOR AMENITIES

The new Cat® 777G off-highway truck builds on the legacy of performance, reliability, and long-term durability established by 777 models since 1977, both in mining and large earthmoving applications.

Rated payload for the new 777G is 98.4 tons (89.4 MT), with a standard-body volume (SAE 2:1) of 83.8 cubic yards (64.1 m3). The design of the 777G, which replaces the 777F, focuses on fuel efficiency, enhanced visibility, and operator comfort, convenience, and safety.

Conserving fuel

The new 777G’s Cat C32 ACERT™ engine meets US EPA Tier 4 Final as well as EU Stage V emission standards and is available in configurations to meet emission standards of less regulated (LRC) countries. The engine delivers 1,025 gross horsepower (765 kW) and incorporates a number of fuel-conservation features.

Auto Neutral Idle allows the 777G transmission to intermittently shift to neutral when the truck is idling in a forward gear to avoid stalling the torque converter and increasing engine speed. Engine Idle Shutdown, an operator-selected feature, stops the engine when the truck idles in park for more than a preset interval. Speed Limiting provides an alternative to gear-limiting the 777G by allowing the truck to travel at a more fuel-efficient engine speed and in a more efficient transmission gear. Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy (APECS) transmission controls boost fuel efficiency by maintaining momentum and speed on uphill grades during shifts.

In addition, the 777G has two operating modes, Standard Economy and Adaptive Economy. Standard Economy saves fuel by reducing engine power by 0.5 to 15 percent, based on the fleet and economic conditions at a particular site. Adaptive Economy requires a production baseline for the site using the Advisor display, and then, as the truck travels the haul cycle, the system automatically evaluates the power rating needed to meet baseline requirements. Full power is applied when needed, and reduced power is applied when appropriate. The efficiency of the 777G’s performance is further enhanced by 7 percent more engine torque and an increase in top speed.

Operator environment and safety

The 777G features a redesigned cab, easier to enter and exit, and having a new operator seat on the left and a more comfortable trainer seat on the right. A new console with an integrated hoist-and-shift lever enhances convenience, as does more interior space for storage. The truck’s design also emphasizes improved visibility, to both the work area and instrumentation, and overall visibility is further enhanced with an optional object-detection system. Convenience items include a powered left window, automatic temperature control, throttle lock for long uphill grades, and reduced interior sound (by 50 percent, compared with predecessor models)

Operator safety is a primary design factor for the 777G, with roll-over and falling-object protective structures integrated into the cab’s design. Laminated glass is used in the front and left windows, and emergency egress is provided via a right-side hinged window. A ground-level engine-shutdown switch is readily accessible, and a secondary steering system is provided in the event of the primary steering system failure.

Powerful wet-disc brakes are used at all four corners and provide parking brake and slope-holding capability. Brake life can be extended with an available engine brake, and a brake-wear indicator facilitates timely maintenance. Automatic retarding adds to positive control on downhill grades, and a new steering-sensitive traction-control system assists when ground conditions deteriorate

Structures and bodies

The 777G’s major structures are designed for long-term durability in harsh operating conditions, engineered to endure through more than one power-train life cycle. Box-section castings are used strategically in high-stress areas, a new front frame design increases the approach angle on ramps and grades, and a heavy-duty rear axle housing axle allows increased lubrication and filtration of critical components.

The Dual Slope Body, designed for optimum material retention on haul roads with steep slopes, carries material low and centered for stability. Heaped capacity is 78.8 cubic yards (60.2 m3) in its standard configuration. Two side-board sizes increase capacity for lighter weight materials. The X body has a flat floor and facilitates metering material into a crusher; standard heaped capacity is 83.8 cubic yards (64.1 m3). Rubber or steel liners are available for both bodies. Light-material bodies provide capacities to 165 cubic yards (126 m3).

Serviceability

Tire life can be extended for the 777G with the TKPH/TMPH feature that calculates tire loading, and a mud-protection package is available to help keep power train components clean. Hydraulic-oil filter life is 1,000 hours under normal conditions. Fluid-fill and extraction points are grouped for convenience, and all checkpoints are located at ground level and lighted for night access. A master disconnect switch, engine lock-out switch, and hydraulic lockout switch provide a convenient method when servicing the 777G.
