The first site dumper units featuring Terex Construction’s all-new Powershift transmission have rolled off the production line at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Coventry. The 2016 TA9P models, also featuring Stop-Start engine control and Autoshift technology, will be added to GAP Group’s national equipment fleet over the coming weeks.
Available on all models across the Terex® TA9 and TA10 site dumper portfolios, Powershift transmission allows smooth and more efficient gear changes, helping operators to select the correct gear for the required application – regardless of terrain or ground conditions.
Available with either a manual or optional automatic shift gearbox, the industry-first technology helps to improve productivity and ensures simpler operation. With the option to partner with Stop-Start engine control, the innovative update will improve site dumper productivity and reduce maintenance requirements for operators and managers alike.
Gregg Horne, General Manager at Terex Construction’s Coventry Facility, commented: “We’re committed to leading the way when it comes to technology innovation. That’s why we continue to invest in research and development and pride ourselves on being the first to market with revolutionary equipment upgrades.
“Over the past few months alone, we’ve added a range of new technologies to our site dumper portfolio – Powershift transmission, Stop-Start engine control and Autoshift technology – which have each been specifically designed to improve efficiencies and lower operation costs for owners.
“Seeing the first units featuring these technologies leave our Coventry facility is a proud moment for the team, with impressive future demand demonstrating their real-world suitability for today’s construction professional.”
Featuring T4-F engine technology to meet the highest levels of international emissions standards, the Terex TA9P site dumper is perfectly suited to working in tight areas. Providing class-leading tipping, each model is designed to provide the highest levels of durability, dependability and performance.
