Terex Trucks said it has signed the new dealer to support the growing demand from customers choosing dump trucks in North America and to help bring its TA300 and TA400 dump trucks to even more customers. The company already sells around 170 articulated haulers per year in Georgia.
Border Equipment has branches in Atlanta, Augusta and Savannah. It will sell both the TA300 and the TA400 and provide aftermarket support.
Brett Arrowood, managing partner at Border Equipment, said: "Most of our customers are active in the construction, mining, road construction and large earthmoving sectors. The TA300 and TA400 excel in these applications, so we are looking forward to introducing our customers to the brand.
"Terex Trucks has made a lot of investments and improvements in the trucks over the last few years and this definitely shows in the reliability, durability and low total cost of ownership of the machines."
In North America, the TA300 and TA400 are sold with a three-year warranty, telematics and planned maintenance included as standard.
One example of the recent improvements Terex Trucks has made is the product upgrade on the TA300. Since the beginning of last year, the TA300 has been manufactured with a new transmission, leading to improvements in fuel efficiency, performance, productivity and operator comfort, when compared to the previous model working in the same application.
The 28t truck delivers a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency, a 5km/h increase in speed to 55km/h and an increase in the length of time between oil maintenance intervals from 1,000 to 4,000 hours. In addition, the machine now comes with eight forward gears as well as four reverse gears, to help ensure smoother gear shifting and thereby higher levels of operator comfort.
The TA300 is also equipped with true independent front suspension as standard, further enhancing operator comfort and enabling excellent traction control and productivity in the most challenging conditions.
The TA400, the largest articulated hauler on offer from Terex Trucks, has a maximum payload of 38t and a heaped capacity of 23.3m³. Powered by a high performance, fuel efficient engine that develops a gross power of 331kW, the TA400 is designed to meet the demands of the most extreme operations such as quarries, mines and large-scale construction projects.
The planetary gear transmission provides smooth, efficient gear shifting for optimised fuel consumption and reduced cost of operation. Ground level test points and a fully tilting cab, combined with an electronically raised hood, allow ease of service and excellent uptime.
Dan Meara, regional sales manager at Terex Trucks, commented: "With an excellent reputation in the market, expert employees and complementary lines, Border Equipment is an ideal partner to help bring Terex Trucks' dump trucks to even more customers in the region. Like Terex Trucks, Border Equipment prioritises excellent customer service and they're always willing to go the extra mile for their customers."
