Terex Trucks has updated its TA300 articulated hauler with the introduction of a new and improved transmission. The 28-tonne (30-ton) workhorse will now incorporate the latest EP320 transmission from ZF as standard. This results in a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency, as well as enhanced performance and productivity, when compared to the previous model working in the same application. The new transmission comes with eight forward gears as well as four reverse gears, higher overall gear ratio spread, equal ratio steps between gears and optimized gear shifting with partial load shifts. All of this helps to 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 maximum productivity in the most challenging of conditions.
This year, the US construction industry is expected to grow by 5%, owing to positive trends in housing and large-scale infrastructure projects.

When it comes to the mining industry, the phrase ‘Everything is bigger in Texas' is most certainly true according to B-C Equipment Sales.

B-C Equipment Sales has been dominating the local market for the past 32 years, ever since Bill Lathrop and his wife Cathy decided to go into business together. With a reputation built on tradition and integrity, the family-run company has a customer network covering four major areas in South Texas: Corpus Christi, San Antonio, LaFeria and Laredo.
