The engine, built on the world-class Mercedes-Benz platform, gives a high peak torque of 520/810/1100 Nm even at a low RPM range of 1200 to 1600 RPM. This ensures performance on all kinds of terrains.
ENHANCED TURNAROUND TIME
The heavy-duty 9 speed G131 gearbox has an excellent crawler gear ratio of 14:57:1. It provides for more gear options, has a maximum torque capability of 1310 Nm and offers superior gradeability. Along with the high power, high torque engine, this ensures maximum productivity.
The versatile MB RT4 390 rear axle is equipped with an inter-wheel and inter-axle differential lock for better momentum and manoeuvrability in slushy conditions.
LONGER SERVICE INTERVAL
An engine oil change interval of 1000 hrs / 30,000 km, a gearbox oil change interval of 2000 hrs / 90,000 km and a differential oil change interval of 2000 hrs / 90,000 km reduce the frequency of lubrication and maintenance costs. This makes sure that our tippers are always at work for you.
A heavy-duty steel frame of 230 mm depth in 12 tonne truck and 288 mm depth in 25 tonne and 31 tonne truck, 9 mm thickness and cross members of full depth provide for greater chassis stiffness. This in turn improves its load bearing, torsional and bending abilities. It has an internal flitch with selective reinforcement on both top and bottom flanges which lends it a robust and an optimum weight design. The shot-blasted and powder-coated frame of the chassis increases its surface strength. This makes it corrosion resistant and therefore last longer.
Larger clutch plate diameters of 362 mm for 4x2, 395 mm for 6x4 and 430mm for 8x4 tippers ensure respectively more contact area for better power transmission and lower slippage. Higher wear depth of 3.5 mm means more life and less maintenance. Organic material with cushion segment between friction linings, ensures consistent performance even at high temperatures.
Heavy-duty bogie suspension for 25 and 31 tonne and semi elliptical suspension for 12 tonne makes our tippers reliable and durable in tough operating conditions. It also improves stability and load carrying ability of the vehicle. It has lesser number of moving parts, which makes it reliable and low maintenance.
This heavy-duty braking system has a wider and thicker brake lining, which makes it long lasting. It also ensures the braking response is quick and efficient. The top mounted and elevated positioning of the brake chamber on the rear axle protects it from any external impacts.
The tippers have a strong and durable heavy-duty banjo type axle; with 3128CM having HL7 hub reduction with a low torque step down ratio of 5.333 and a low reduction ratio. This gives better torque at the wheels and traction, which in turn provides better pickup and increases the life of the crown wheel and pinion. The large face width of its crown wheel provides greater contact area leading to better load distribution.
Anti-roll bars on front and rear axles ensure that tyres are in constant touch with the road, for better road grip and stability of the vehicle, especially during cornering and lane-changing at high speeds.
SIDE IMPACT BEAM AND 3 PIECE STEEL BUMPER
The Side impact beam and 3 piece steel bumper adds further strength to the cabin to keep the driver safe at all times.
CRASH TESTED CABIN
Ensures survival space for cabin crew in case of emergencies
Ergonomically designed extended day cabin with provision for sleeper berth. Most comfortable driving position: 3 way adjustable seat (reclining, horizontal and vertical) along with a tiltable and telescopic steering Twin co-driver seat. A fully sealed cabin cuts off vehicle noise and reduces driver fatigue. Easy entry into cabin with doors opening as wide as 90o.
Forced ventilation with blowers and optional air-conditioning: Improved knee level and waist level ventilation Rear sliding windows: Bigger rear sliding windows provided for better cross ventilation inside the cabin
INTELLIGENT INSTRUMENT CLUSTER
Ideally positioned with clear visibility, the instrument cluster provides plenty of useful information like trip mileage, neutral and reverse gear indication, distance to empty fuel, etc.
HYDRAULICALLY ASSISTED TILTABLE CABIN
Wider tilt angle of 45? for 12 tonne and 67? for 25 & 31 tonne provides ease of inspection.
FULLY SUSPENDED CABIN WITH PARABOLIC FRONT SUSPENSION
Parabolic suspension with wider mounting span improves drive quality and reduces driver fatigue, thus improving his productivity.
EASY GEAR SHIFTING
Simplified gear shift arrangement with ball joint mechanism and double synchrocone ensures smoother, precise gear shifting and gives you a car like driving experience.
