Terex Trucks TA400 is said to meet the demands of the most extreme operations
Terex Trucks is gearing up to showcase its TA400 and TA300 articulated haulers on home ground at ScotPlant 2018 at the Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh, Scotland, on 20-21 April.
The Gen 10 machines will have pride of place on the Motherwel, Scotland-based company’s exhibition stand (space D18).
Joining Terex Trucks throughout the two-day event will be the company’s official UK dealer, TDL Equipment, which will be exhibiting nearby (stand D20).
“Scotland is the home of Terex Trucks, so we’re excited to be exhibiting once again at the leading construction show in the country,” says Paul Douglas, managing director of Terex Trucks.
“Scotland is known for the quality of its engineering and at Terex Trucks we are proud of our Scottish roots. We are looking forward to exhibiting the Gen 10 TA400 and TA300 so we can discuss our latest innovations and investments with customers.”
“TDL Equipment is proud to be the UK mainland distributor for Terex Trucks,” says John Black, sales director at TDL Equipment.
“ScotPlant is an important fixture in our calendar because it’s a chance for us to meet with existing and potential future customers to showcase the latest Gen 10 articulated haulers.”

More than 4,000 construction trade professionals flocked to the last ScotPlant show, which took place in 2016. The number of visitors and the impressive names on the exhibitor list helped to reaffirm its reputation as an event where high-value deals are done.
Designed to meet the demands of the most extreme operations, the Terex Trucks TA400 is a 38tonne machine that is said to excel in large-scale construction projects, quarries and mines.
It is powered by a six-cylinder Scania DC13 engine that boasts gross power of 331kW and a maximum torque of 2,255Nm.
The 28tonne machine is a proven performer in tough applications ranging from quarries to infrastructure developments and commercial projects.
Giving the TA300 its power is a five-cylinder Scania DC9 engine, which provides 276kW gross power and a maximum torque of 1,880Nm.
The machine comes fitted with a transmission retardation system, in combination with an engine exhaust brake, which supports the fully enclosed oil-cooled multidisc brakes for maximum protection.
