The quarry and construction vehicle market is extremely complex, because of the many applications: vehicles with 2, 3 or 4 axles with or without all-wheel drive; a wide range of power deliveries; trucks and tractors; models designed for limited off road use or full off road and special variants for specific applications.
New Trakker boasts a product range, in both left and right hand drive, wider than ever before allowing customers to tailor the product to their specific mission. As before the lighter range, designed for on/off highway under legally controlled vehicle operating weight conditions and the heavy range designed for substantial off road conditions demanding an exceedingly robust chassis and running gear construction.
New for Trakker are single reduction drive axles fitted with disc brakes, bringing all wheel disc brakes to new Trakker representing further savings in operating costs, and the availability of the hub reduction axles with a new heavy duty pneumatic suspension.

This is mirrored by the 4x4 configuration in which the 310hp version of the Cursor 8 engine is added to meet specific utility requirements.
The 3 axle rigid versions in 6x4 configuration are targeted for general on and off road applications and for specific concrete mixer application. The Cursor 8 engine is available at 330hp and 360hp and the Cursor 13 engine is available with power ratings of 410hp and 450hp. The Cursor 13 engine rated at 500hp is available for heavy duty off road applications. The 6x6 configuration is available with the Cursor 8 engine rated at 360hp and the Cursor 13 engine rated at 410 and 450hp.
The 4 axle rigid versions in 8x4 configuration, are again targeted for general on and off road applications and for specific concrete mixer application.
The Cursor 8 engine is available at 360hp and the Cursor 13 engine is available with power ratings of 410hp and 450hp. The 8x8 configuration is available at the single engine rating of 500hp with the Cursor 13 engine.

All non driven Iveco front axles are fitted with disc brakes and Iveco rear axles of the hubreduction type, providing excellent off-road tractability, are fitted with drum brakes. Meritor single-reduction axles are used for the lighter on/off road 6x4 and 8x4 models and feature disc brakes giving those models disc brakes all round. Front axle platings range from 8ton to 9ton. All engine variants retain the Iveco decompression engine brake and, for the Cursor 13 – 410 engine, the new CEB (Compression Engine Brake) has been adopted. This is a constant counter pressure engine brake providing enhanced levels of engine brake performance.
Steel parabolic and multileaf road springs are carry over as is the light duty on/off road air suspension used on 6x4 and 8x4 models. A new air suspension system for heavier duty off road applications in combination with the Iveco hub-reduction axle bogie for 6x4 and 8x4 applications. Suspension anti-roll stabilisers are available to suit a wide range of centre of mass heights to ensure a high degree of vehicle stability even for arduous off-road conditions.
