High-horsepower haul truck
Terex says its new TA300 articulated truck boasts the highest horsepower and torque in its class and is the only 30-ton hauler that comes standard with a fully independent front suspension system. The truck features a 385-horsepower, Tier 3-compliant Cummins diesel engine; a ZF fully automatic transmission with manual override; a maximum torque of 1,309 foot-pounds at 1,400 revolutions per minute; and a 100-percent differential locking action that enables the truck to tackle challenging grades and extreme site conditions with ease.
Rice Lake’s LaserLT remote weight display has a five-button keypad that can remotely change units, gross/net, tare, zero, and print. The large 1½-inch display is fully adjustable for effortless viewing at up to 50 feet. The unit is daisy-chainable for linking multiple units to a single indicator/controller and installs easily with any electronic weight indicator or peripheral equipment using fiber-optic, Ethernet, or wireless methods. Six easy-to-read enunciators and an added red and green stop/go feature boost communication and expand versatility.
Visual blade-wear gauge
Flexco’s new conveyor belt cleaner, the Rockline EZP-LS Limited Space Precleaner, is a compact version of the company’s current precleaners — the low-profile design boasts the same material path options, and visual tension check. The belt cleaner also features a visual blade-wear gauge built into the tensioner. The 4.5-inch-high blade features the patented, faceted ConShear blade profile that allows the blade to renew its cleaning edge as it wears, and the one-pin blade replacement feature is said to allow easy servicing.
TCI Manufacturing’s new floating transfer conveyors are designed to work with the company’s bucket dredge. The conveyors are built with a swivel point for dredge movement and a radial-type receiving hopper. Other features include a head-end turn style, head-end discharge hood, and a catwalk and handrails around the head end and down the drive side of the conveyor.
