Construction Equipment Guide

Terex’s TA30 articulated dump truck (ADT) has Terex independent front suspension system with integral wet disc brakes and is fitted with the latest Tier III engines for optimum performance and fuel efficiency. The TA30 has a 350-hp (261 kW) Cummins QSM11 engine and a maximum payload of 30.9 tons (28 t).

The Terex independent front suspension system, which was developed in conjunction with Timoney Mobility Systems of Navan (Ireland), is a purpose-designed, parallel-linkage coil-spring system. This system addresses the increasing emphasis on driver comfort. It also significantly adds to the potential for increased productivity by providing a smooth ride and improved handling, which can result in faster cycle times, according to the manufacturer.

Another feature of the latest generation of Terex articulated haulers is the provision of all-round, fully-enclosed wet-disc brakes on all wheels of these haulers, which provide long-life and fade-free braking. This improves not only overall braking performance and operating efficiency, but it also increases service life and reduces operating costs.
