Choosing the right machine for a project depends, of course, on the application and working environment. Terex Trucks articulated haulers offer high levels of flexibility, versatility and maneuverability, allowing them to navigate tighter working conditions. The machines can haul a variety of materials under varying conditions and are a good fit for quarrying, mining, and tunneling application as well as earthmoving, material handling and waste handling.
Another aspect to consider is the required payload of the hauler, which is determined by the material that is to be transported, as well as the size of the project. In the U.S., many contractors are kicking off large-scale construction projects at the moment, and for these tasks, the Terex Trucks TA400 is a great choice.
“In Northern America, the demand for our machines is very high,” says Robert Franklin, Sales and Marketing Director of the Americas at Terex Trucks. “Our TA400s are working on lots of projects in the U.S. and Canada, where their efficiency and productivity is proving very popular.”
In Pennsylvania, a fleet of TA400s is part of a road improvement project on the Turnpike highway. Moving material throughout the day, the haulers help reconstruct and widen more than seven miles from two lanes to three. In the south of the U.S., the TA400s are busy working in quarries and general construction projects.
“Apart from high levels of productivity, customers are also increasingly looking for high levels of efficiency in a machine,” says Franklin. The TA400’s exceptional fuel economy helps customers to keep the total cost of ownership low. Its lean, fuel-efficient engine meets the Tier IV Final emission standards without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
As the construction sector in North America is recovering from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for machinery has seen a significant increase in recent months. “We’re experiencing a high demand for our machines as well as for our lease offer across the U.S.,” concludes Franklin. “All our dealers in North America have strong rental fleets, and they are active as well, with very high utilization rates. Our customers are busy at the moment, and we’re expecting a good year and have a positive outlook for 2022.”
