Carrying a Heavy Load
Increased productivity, uptime
John Deere Construction Equipment’s 250D, 300D, 350D, and 400D articulated dump trucks have been enhanced to increase productivity and uptime, according to the company. Updates include the transmission, operator station improvements, electrical enhancements, and a new engine in the 250D and 300D. The company says the truck’s best-in-class engine fuel economy and payload-to-weight ratio translate to lower daily operating costs. A new monitor provides increased diagnostic capability.
Chute allows quick material ejection
Terex Construction Americas says its 450-horsepower TA40 Generation 7TA articulated off-highway truck offers high power, high torque, and Tier III-emission certified engines for maximum performance. Its dual-slope tail chute is said to allow for complete and quick material ejection. The ergonomic cab is equipped with an air-suspended, fully adjustable operator’s seat. All Generation 7 models feature tilting cabs for unrestricted access for inspection and maintenance.
Caterpillar Inc. says its 740 articulated truck features an expanded capacity of 43.5 tons, the biggest payload of all the 40-ton size class. The truck body can handle 31.4 cubic yards of material, according to the company, and features differential locks that can be engaged and disengaged on-the-go for faster cycle times in challenging conditions and on steep grades.
