taurus buckets

GUARANTEE

  • Fully engineered and proven up with the latest computer modelling and Finite Element Analysis software

  • Only the best quality Q&T plate is used

  • First class quality control produces and practices with all records available to the end user

  • Much larger capacity than other manufacturers bodies without exceeding OEM- GVM

  • Cubic Capacities of all bodies can be custom made to suit material SG and site conditions

  • Increased payload without exceeding OEM- GVM

  • Strong but lighter than other manufactures bodies

  • Light weight and durable design

  • Lighter truck tare weight lowers fuel burn, lessens tyre wear and lessens truck cycle times

  • Innovative use of steel to lower weight and retain maximum strength

  • Use of radius walls for added strength and to reduce material hang up

  • Use of light weight and easily removable hungry boards to maximize capacity for different material SG

  • Full length cross brace side wall beam designed to tie the front of the body to the rear and maximize strength at torque tube and head-board area connection

  • Use of T beams throughout the body to maximize strength but reduce weight

  • Rear of the floor angled up to retain load on grade and lessen wear on the floor by allowing the top section of the load to discharge before the bottom section lowering the total payload weight sliding on the floor at once

  • Unique light self-supporting canopy lowering the need for heavy bearers to support the weight

  • Head board designed with angled rear and sides to limit material going over the front of the body reducing damage to cowlings, lights and hand rails

  • Light weight material deflectors at the front of the head board to deflect any material that is forced over the front of the headboard to prevent damage to cowlings, lights and hand rails

  • Light weight mirror and hand rail protectors

  • Mirror and hand rail protectors are bolted on to reduce width of body for transport

  • Full 12 months or 6000 hour warranty

  • Guaranteed lowest purchase price compared to all other body manufactures without sacrificing quality and strength

  • Full hire or hire to buy options can be made available to selected customeR

  • Fully engineered and thoroughly examined through state of the art computerized Engineering and Finite Element Analysis systems

  • Lighter weight

  • All quality materials used

  • Full life expectations

  • Largest volume possible to utilize 10/10/20 rule

  • Cubic capacities are calculated on actual volumes (not SAE 2.1) with 100- 150 mm free board allowance

  • Light weight self-supporting head board

  • Dual - horizontal and vertical front head board material deflectors

  • Cross brace side wall beam design

  • Superior design for all pivot and lifting points with our unique Y system hoist beams

  • T section beams throughout the body for lightness but with superior strength

  • Radius’s at the base of the front and side walls to limit material hang up and add extra strength

  • Can be supplied with either fixed or removable hungry boards

  • Replacement bolt on hungry boards to increase payloads as required i.e. Coal or a lighter material sg.

  • Replacement bolt on hungry boards for the ease of changing if damaged, less downtime

  • Floor designed to have the load shear on its self- significantly increasing life and lowering floor wear

  • Rear floor angle up to retain material on haul road grades

  • Rear floor angled up to limit body floor wear on discharge at the tip face

  • Rear floor angled up to limit rear under body floor damage on discharge at the tip face

  • Rear floor angled up to cleanly eject payload over the berm

  • Aggressive rear wedge shape for ease of material flow on discharge limiting floor and wall wear

  • Better than half wheel height of the body at the tipping face preventing drag back of material, significantly decreasing truck tyre damage and ancillary machine hours for clean-up

  • Designed initially not to have floor liners (Mine site material dependant)

     TAURUS will not compromise on the quality of plate, workmanship or materials that we use. HARDOX and JFE / SUMITOMO/ BIS Q&T plate are our suppliers
