Terex’s new TA9 dumper

GLOBAL equipment solutions provider, Terex Construction, has announced a Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Final-compliant range of nine and ten-tonne site dumpers. Featuring 55kW (74hp) JCB EcoMAX turbo-charged diesel engines, the new TA9 and TA10 models will offer users increased fuel efficiency without any exhaust after-treatment requirements.

The first-to-market units emit the lowest CO2 figures for comparable payloads on the market today, as well as delivering a lower cost of operation and efficient cycle times. Available to order from distributors immediately, the units deliver superior customer value; both on an initial purchase basis and total life cost of operation.

The new Terex® dumpers feature an innovative Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) dashboard, complete with hour meter, coolant temperature gauge and fuel level readout. Early warning alerts help to prevent costly downtime and enhance operator safety. In addition, a user readout panel provides real-time machine information, while Engine Control Unit (ECU) technology manages performance data to improve reliability.

Neal Nowick, General Manager of Terex Construction’s Coventry facility, commented: “Launching this first-to-market range of Stage IIIB/ Tier 4 Final-compliant nine and ten-tonne site dumpers is an exciting move for Terex Construction.

“Ensuring our site equipment meets the latest international regulations – in particular emissions control – is essential, which is why we made the decision to move away from our current engine solution and instead look towards the 55kW EcoMAX alternative.

“Each new TA9 and TA10 site dumper is fitted with the enhanced engine setup – delivering a compliant on-site solution capable of meeting the highest international emissions regulations.”

The launch of Terex’s Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Final-compliant range of nine and ten-tonne site dumpers completes the transition of the brand’s portfolio (TA6, TA6S, TA9, TA10) of site dumpers to JCB as the new exclusive engine supplier. Terex will maintain a price freeze on the TA9 and TA10 models throughout 2015 to deliver exceptional customer value.
