Terex Construction has introduced affordable lease options to customers on its TA300 and TA400 models of Generation 9 articulated trucks. The new Terex Gen 9 articulated truck lease program features low monthly payments, no money down, with the option to refinance at the end of the initial lease period or lease a new Terex articulated truck. The program will run until March 31, 2013, in North America.
“Because of the uncertainty within the construction industry, end-users are reluctant to make long-term buying commitments in order to conserve cash flow,” said John Poag, director of sales, Terex Construction. “To help keep their equipment acquisition options open, as well as to allow them flexibility in an uncertain economy, we designed this truck lease program so customers can get the equipment they need while improving their cash flow without being locked into payments or terms that are tough on their bottom line.”
Features of the new Terex Gen 9 articulated truck lease program include no money down, low monthly payments, the ability to return or sell the trucks at the end of the lease terms. This benefits customers with a lower capital investment compared to buying, an affordable way to keep newer products in an equipment fleet and could yield significant tax advantages based on recent changes in tax regulations. Customers should consult their tax professionals for more information.
Low cost of ownership is a key feature of Terex TA300 and TA400 articulated haulers. Engineered to excel in the toughest applications around the world, Terex Gen 9 articulated trucks are designed to keep productivity levels high, fuel consumption low and cycle times short, according to the manufacturer.
With a maximum payload of 30 tons (27 t), a body dump cycle time of 20 seconds and a 22.9-cu. yd. (17.5 cu m) heaped capacity body, customers will benefit from low cost-per-ton per hour when moving material with the Terex TA300 articulated truck. Powered by a Tier IV interim compliant Scania DC9 370-hp (276 kW) engine, the TA300 is equipped with a ZF fully automatic with manual override transmission and retarder, with six forward gears and three reverse gears. It has a maximum torque of 1,309 lb.-ft. at 1,400 rpm, and when coupled with the 100 percent differential locking action, this performance gives the truck excellent pulling power and significant traction advantage. An independent front suspension (IFS) system comes standard on the TA300, providing a smooth ride when traveling over rough terrain and making it easier to handle while increasing productivity.
Boasting a 444 hp (331 kW) Tier IV interim compliant Scania DC13 engine, the powerful TA400 has a maximum payload of 41.9 tons (38 t) and a heaped capacity of 30.3 cu. yds. (23 cu m). With an, emissions-compliant diesel engine offering maximum torque of 1,548 ft.-lb. at 1,350 rpm, coupled to a fully automatic Allison transmission through a two-speed drop box, the TA400 provides both exceptional rim-pull and high-speed capabilities, according to the manufacturer.
The TA400 also is equipped with dual retarder systems, a transmission retarder and exhaust brake, giving operators increased control in loaded, downhill hauls. Engineered with a permanent all-wheel-drive (6x6) driveline and equalizing rear suspension, the TA400 also offers enhanced traction capabilities. A four-bar trailing arm suspension system contributes to this truck’s ride quality, allowing operators to travel quickly and comfortably on difficult terrain.
