Terex Unveils the New TA400 Generation 9 Articulated Truck


Designed to work on jobsites ranging from sand and gravel operations to coal mines and road construction projects, the new Terex TA400 Generation 9 articulated truck is designed to keep productivity levels high, fuel consumption low and cycle times short. Boasting a 444 hp (331 kW) Tier 4 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 yd.³ (23.3 m³).

With a world-class, emissions-compliant engine offering maximum torque of 1,548 ft.-lb. (2,100 Nm) at 1,350 rpm, coupled to a fully automatic Allison transmission through a two-speed drop box, the new TA400 provides both exceptional rim-pull and high-speed capabilities. The new Generation 9 TA400 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 (6 x 6) driveline and equalizing rear suspension, the new TA400 also offers exceptional traction capabilities. A four-bar trailing arm suspension system contributes to this new Terex truck’s exceptional ride quality, allowing operators to travel faster and more comfortably on difficult terrain.

“The combination of high torque, high horsepower, high capacity and top speeds make the Terex TA400 Generation 9 articulated truck a class leader in productivity,” said Terex Product Manager Ken Emmett. “The new TA400 is engineered to provide maximum rim-pull and gradeability for negotiating inclines, and with its high range in the drop box for high-speed hauls and a large body capacity designed for high retention, this articulated truck offers customers an excellent cost-to-value ratio.”
