Terex TA30's Gearbox Is Countershaft

September 28, 2010

In our January-issue Buying File on articulated dump trucks, Construction Equipment incorrectly identified the ZF 6WG310 transmission used in the new Terex TA30 as a planetary-type gearbox. This countershaft transmission is an upgrade from the 6WG260 used in most 30-ton trucks, but it is not a planetary design. Deere's 300D is the only 30-ton articulated truck with a planetary transmission. We regret the error.
