Terex TA400 Articulated Dump Truck

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.
