Terex Trucks signed Border Equipment as a dealer to bring its TA300 and TA400 dump trucks to customers.

Georgia-based Border Equipment has more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry, with branches in Atlanta, Augusta and Savannah.

“Most of our customers are active in the construction, mining, road construction and large earthmoving sectors,” says Brett Arrowood, Border Equipment managing partner. “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.”

Border Equipment will sell both the TA300 and the TA400. In North America, each is sold with a three-year warranty, telematics and planned maintenance included, with finance packages available for lease and wholesale.

The TA300 has been manufactured with a new transmission since 2019, aimed to improve fuel efficiency, performance, productivity and operator comfort, according to Terex Trucks.

The 30-ton workhorse delivers a 5 percent improvement in fuel efficiency, a 3.1-mph speed increase to 34 mph, and an increase from 1,000 to 4,000 hours in the length of time between oil maintenance intervals.

The machine comes with eight forward gears and four reverse gears designed to improve cycle times, lower cost per ton and reduce carbon emissions, according to Terex Terex. The TA300 is also equipped with true independent front suspension.

The TA400, the largest articulated hauler offered by Terex Trucks, has a maximum payload of 41.9 tons and a heaped capacity of 30.3 cu. yd.

Powered by an engine that develops a gross power of 331 kW, the TA400 is designed to function in extreme operations such as quarries, mines and large-scale construction projects, according to the company.

The planetary gear transmission provides gear shifting designed for fuel consumption and reduced cost of operation. The truck also features ground-level test points, a fully tilting cab and an electronically-raised hood.
