Terex Construction releases new site dumper range
Published: 01 December, 2014
In a drive to meet international emissions regulations, Terex Construction has released a Tier 4 Final-compliant range of 6-tonne site dumpers.
Featuring 55kW EcoMAX turbo-charged diesel engines, the new Terex TA6 and TA6s dumper models are intended to deliver superior machine performance and efficiency. They provide users with 400Nm of torque, and are designed to reduce fuel consumption by up to 8%.
The new units also feature a rugged automotive-style LCD dashboard complete with hour meter, coolant temperature gauge and fuel level readout. New early warning alerts, such as water-in-fuel and air filter blockage, are intended to help prevent costly downtime, while Engine Control Unit (ECU) technology will manage performance data to improve reliability.
“Announcing a new range of Tier 4 Final-compliant site dumpers is an exciting move for the Terex compact construction range,” said Neal Nowick, general manager of Terex Coventry. “Ensuring our site equipment meets regulations is a key priority, which is why we made the decision to look towards a completely new technological upgrade.”
Mr Nowick added: “Our site dumper range has gone from strength-to-strength over the past 12 months, resulting in a number of high-profile new contracts and system upgrades. The 55kW (74hp) Stage IV/ Tier 4 Final engine solution from JCB Power Systems will enable us to further continue this drive – delivering an improved end product capable of meeting the highest international emissions compliance regulations.”
