UK suppliers of precast and ready-mixed concrete solutions, FP McCann, has bought a Terex Trucks TA400 articulated hauler to transport blasted rock around one of its quarries in Northern Ireland. The new truck is the fifth Terex Trucks model to joint the company’s fleet.
“We were happy to go with Terex Trucks one again,” said Mark McCann, a Civil Engineer with FP McCann. “It fits the requirements of the quarry. We’ve noticed an increase in productivity, as the machine has been performing well, and the operators have also commented on the comfortable and ergonomic cab.”
The new truck is powered by a six-cylinder Scania DC13 EU Stage 4 compliant engine that develops gross power of 331 kW and the maximum torque of 2,255 Nm. The TA400 is also fitted with autolube and a tailgate, while its traction and effective power-to-weight ratio ensures material is moved as quickly as possible in all conditions.
