The 410E-II and 460E-II articulated dump trucks (ADTs) from John Deere feature three new drive modes and simplified transmission-retarder controls that can be matched to jobsite conditions or driving style, according to the company. In addition, the ADTs’ updated hose routings and new wheel-speed sensors are uptime friendly, and the pressurized cab is designed to make shifts feel shorter, John Deere says.

Truck designed for rugged, off-road use

The new TA 230 Litronic is an all-terrain articulated dump truck primarily designed for overburden transport and the mining industry, according to Liebherr. The machine’s powershift transmission is positioned under the operator’s cab, and the exhaust gas aftertreatment is installed behind the cab in order to save space. In addition, the solid articulated swivel joint improves off-road capabilities and maneuverability, the company says, allowing for independent movements of the front and rear end. The front and rear axles of the machine are secured with A-rods at the articulated swivel joint and at the rear end. They’re designed for maximum ground clearance.

Haul trucks offer operator visibility, control

Rokbak introduced the RA40 and RA30 haul trucks. The RA40 is the larger of the two and is designed for major projects, the company says. It is powered by the Scania DC13 engine and features 444-hp gross power, a maximum torque of 2,255 Nm and a 41.9-ton payload to ensure the fast movement of heavy-duty materials on all types of terrain. The 30.9-ton RA30 articulated hauler, meanwhile, offers a capacity of 17.5 cubic meters and is powered by a Scania DC9 engine, generating a gross power of 370 hp and a maximum torque of 1,880 Nm. According to Rokbak, both machines are linked to the company’s Haul Track telematics system, giving operators complete visibility and control of the hauler, GPS access and location tracking data.

Solutions to track progress in real time

Trimble Smart Haul is designed to improve load and haul, reduce cycle times and boost tons per hour, allowing operators to meet their targets. With the technology, operators can track productivity and progress of load/haul operations to ensure they are on target to achieve their goals. By combining payload data from the excavator scale with haul fleet monitoring and cloud reporting, operators can identify opportunities to move material with greater speed and efficiency, the company says.

New suspension allows for smoother rides

The DA45-5 articulated dump truck – the successor to the DA40-5 – features a maximum allowable payload increase to 45.2 short tons and is designed for mining applications, according to Doosan. The DA45-5 touts the same major features as its smaller counterpart, the DA30-5, and a new self-leveling, hydro-gas suspension absorbs bumps for smoother rides. In addition, a real-time payload measuring system with a standard external light tells operators how close they are to maximum payload. Permanent six-wheel contact comes via a free-swinging, rear tandem bogie, which provides traction and stability on both soft ground and uneven surfaces, Doosan says.
