The dumptruck is being brought into the UK initially as a demonstration unit for extensive customer trials with it becoming available in January next year.
The 30t machine is designed with the compact transport dimensions of a 25t dump truck.
Its transport width is under 3m and, with a 19m³ dump body volume.
The TA 230 is the largest in its class with a shape specially designed for rapid dumping action.
Powerful hydraulic cylinders allow the machine to dump a payload in 12 seconds and return to its initial position in 8 seconds.
The machine going on display is driven by a 10.5-litre 270 kW Liebherr D936LA6 diesel engine, which conforms with Stage IIIA / Tier 3 emission limits; Stage IIIB / Tier 4 interim will start at the end of 2012.
It travels at a top speed of 57 km/h on a level surface. Four reverse gears are provided, with the travel speed limited electronically to 16 km/h.
The dumptruck has an ideal oil-cooled wet brake system acting on the front and centre axles for maximum safety.
Automatic transmission, retarder controls and the dump control lever have a sensitive action to produce precise control.
A touchscreen display can show the image supplied by the reversing camera or actual temperatures, engine speed, air conditioning settings, time display, number of dumping operations or daily operating hours.
