LOAD & HAUL


Longer warranties demonstrate the durability of Terex’s range of parts


features a completely redesigned cab and a host of other improvements over the outgoing 745C. For operator comfort, new lighter


doors off er improved sealing, and now the cab has opening windows on both sides. Noise inside is reduced by 5dB. Diff erent glass reduces the heat levels, while more vents help with air fl ow. A new heated/cooled seat enables more adjustment than the previous off ering. Also new is a ‘wake up’ feature that


is activated when the door is opened, starting the displays ready for when the operator is settled. New mirrors and payload area lights improve visibility, as does the removal of the rear structural pillar, replaced by bonded glass. For controlling the machine, a new combined transmission and hoist lever reduces operator eff ort, while a revised push-button lever control allows the operator to easily set the machine speed and select transmission hold/ waiting break. Several safety features come as


standard, including directional gear-changing protection, ensuring the machine is fully stationary when


changing gears, and the new Cat Detect with Stability Assist system, which has an audio visual warning if a dangerous payload angle has been reached. A pro-active diff lock system reduces wheel spin over rough ground, and terrain-based throttle smoothing prevents the truck from surging when the driver is being shaken about and can’t keep even pressure on the throttle pedal.


Caterpillar’s new hauler gets to work


Warranty wise Terex Trucks is launching a new extended two year/6,000 hour warranty on all factory-approved parts. Gary Bradburn, aftermarket commercial manager, explains, “T ere are risks to safety and consequential damage to machines if just one cut-rate alternative part is fi tted as anything can happen. Buying non-genuine parts is a case of ‘good price, good luck’. We would ask that customers look beyond the initial price of such products as it’s more than likely that additional service costs will arise in the long-term due to damage downstream. “For a machine to remain operating at its full potential, buying factory- approved parts is the only way forward, and with this new warranty, if anything were to go wrong then a customer would still be able to maintain 100% peace of mind knowing they are fully supported. We are proud of our trucks, we trust the integrity of our parts suppliers, and we’re confi dent that this is a big statement we can back up.” ●
