The first model in a new line of articulated dump trucks, the TA 230 measures under 10 ft. (3 m) wide for easy transport, yet maintains a 25.11-cu.-yd. (19.2 cu. m) dump body volume with a shape specially designed for rapid dumping action. Three heavy-duty rigid axles are the basis for a high-performance 6x6 driveline with automatic transmission and torque converter. Transmission and retarder controls and the dumping control lever have a sensitive action to permit precise control of the dumper. The unit is powered by a 367-hp, 10.5-litre Liebherr D936LA6 Tier III diesel engine.
