Terex trucks for Scottish Coal
Some of the Terex TR100 trucks delivered by TDL Equipment
The final two trucks of a 20-unit machine order placed by Scottish Coal have rolled out of the Terex manufacturing facility in Motherwell, Scotland.
The TR100 rigid trucks are part of a large order placed at the end of 2011 by Scottish Coal through TDL Equipment, the official UK distributor of Terex heavy line construction machines. They have joined the rest of the fleet across the company’s open cast coal sites in County Ayrshire, which now totals 44 TR100s operating across Scottish Coal’s Ayrshire sites.
All 20 trucks will be covered by a TDL full repair and maintenance contract and will include a range of reliability, performance and safety improvements that have been jointly developed by Scottish Coal, TDL and the Terex manufacturing plant in Motherwell.
An example of the partnership in operation is the all-round vision system being fitted to the new trucks. The new safety camera system, which affords the operator a 360º bird’s eye view of potential obstructions around the truck was established based on the customer’s increased safety requirements for better visibility. The system has been jointly developed and trialled by TDL in conjunction with Scottish Coal.
