Southaven, Miss. (March 11, 2008) Designed with narrower dimensions and a tighter turning radius, the new Terex® TA2S site dumper has enhanced maneuverability so that it can work more efficiently in tight places. The TA2S is a standard-discharge, swivel-tip site dumper with a 4,400 lb (2,000 kg) capacity. It is perfectly matched to the bucket capacity of a mini excavator and is ideally suited for smaller plant users and the rental market. The TA2S will replace the Terex® PS2000 site dumper when it enters into production this year.
We believe that the new TA2S will be popular the North American market, says Tom Reith, Terex Construction product manager. Terex has made major investments to expand our product portfolio, proving that Terex is committed to delivering productive, reliable and easy-to-operate machines to suit the needs of all customers.
Part of the TA2 site dumper family, the new TA2S uses a proven Newage drivetrain combined with the powerful and reliable 32.6 hp (24.5 kW) EPA interim Tier 4-compliant Kubota water-cooled diesel engine. All of the site dumpers in the TA2 family will be available in a wide variety of tipping and transmission configurations to fit every customer™s need. With a 1.6yd³ (1,200 L) heaped skip capacity, a total width of 4 ft 9 in (1,492 mm) and a maximum travel speed of 10 mph (16 km/h), the new TA2 site dumper models are sure to prove popular with users who move materials and dirt around tight construction sites.
The TA2S also has a new gas-operated folding ROPS frame for ease of use, plus easy maintenance access for the engine. Steel tanks have been included, in addition to a tough leg guard, to protect the driver from debris when operating the unit. The side exit exhaust system and Venturi on the TA2S helps to reduce dust being blown up from the floor and gives improved impact protection.
The Terex® TA2 site dumper family will consist of the:
TA2 4,400 lb (2,000 kg) capacity forward tip manual transmission
TA2S 4,400 lb (2,000 kg) capacity swivel tip manual transmission
TA2SE 4,400 lb (2,000 kg) capacity high discharge swivel tip manual transmission
TA2H 4,400 lb (2,000 kg) capacity forward tip hydrostatic transmission
TA2EH 4,400 lb (2,000 kg) capacity high discharge forward tip hydrostatic transmission
TA2SH 4,400 lb (2,000 kg) capacity swivel tip hydrostatic transmission

Please note that some models are not available in all world markets.
The E (for ˜elevated discharge™) machines are able to hydraulically rise to enable discharge into small trucks or other haulers.
