As part of a continued drive to meet international emissions regulations, Terex has announced a Stage IV/ Tier 4 Final compliant range of 6-tonne site dumpers. Featuring 55kW (74hp) EcoMAX turbo-charged diesel engines, the new Terex TA6 and TA6s dumper models will deliver superior machine performance and efficiency.
Providing users with 400Nm of torque, the next generation dumpers will enhance on-site user productivity while also lowering running costs and reducing fuel consumption by up to 8%. Adjusting the power band delivers the performance operators need to get the job done without costly and complex exhaust after-treatment systems.
In addition to faster acceleration speeds under load, the new units feature a rugged automotive style Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) dashboard complete with hour meter, coolant temperature gauge and fuel level readout. New early warning alerts, such as water-in-fuel and air filter blockage, will help prevent costly downtime. In addition, a user readout panel will provide real-time machine information, while Engine Control Unit (ECU) technology will manage performance data to improve uptime and reliability.
“Announcing a new range of Stage IV/ Tier 4 Final compliant site dumpers is an exciting move for the Terex compact construction range,” commented Neal Nowick, General Manager of Terex Coventry. “Ensuring our site equipment meets regulations is a key priority, which is why we made the decision to look towards a completely new technological upgrade.
“As Terex isn’t an engine manufacturer, we have the freedom to select the best solutions to meet specific product needs. This allows Terex to be flexible across our different equipment ranges, while always prioritising the highest standards of performance, efficiency, capability and reliability.
“Our site dumper range has gone from strength-to-strength over the past 12 months, resulting in a number of high-profile new contracts and system upgrades. The 55kW (74hp) Stage IV/ Tier 4 Final engine solution from JCB Power Systems will enable us to further continue this drive – delivering an improved end product capable of meeting the highest international emissions compliance regulations.”
