Capacity of the new TA400 articulated dump truck from Terex remains the same as the TA40 it replaces at 41.9 tons, and its Detroit Diesel Series 60, 14-liter engine produces the same power and torque as it has for the past three years. But the computer-controlled components on the TA400 communicate via a CAN-bus network, a leading-edge electronic protocol that not only improves digital control performance but dramatically reduces the amount of wiring required in the truck. Terex says its unique four-bar trailing arm suspension allows operators to travel faster (top speed is 37.3 mph) over difficult terrain. All three axles of the articulated dump are locked in permanent all-wheel drive. The TA400 also gets an all-new cab.
