Iveco will exhibit an on/off-road Trakker 8x4 tipper at Hillhead this year – a major exhibition for the quarrying, construction and recycling sectors.
The vehicle will feature on the Case Construction Equipment stand to reflect the close relationship between the two brands of CNH Industrial – one of the largest capital goods companies in the world.
The Trakker AD340T36K has been mounted with a Wilcox tipper body and is built to tackle off-road missions in the construction and demolition sectors. It is powered by an Iveco Cursor 9 engine rated at 360 hp, and driven through a ZF 12-speed EuroTronic gearbox which can be operated in semi-automatic or fully automated mode, to best suit the terrain.
Like all Trakker models, the vehicle on display uses Iveco's patented HI-SCR engine technology to meet Euro VI emissions limits without the need for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). HI-SCR increases productivity as it requires neither driver involvement nor downtime from active regeneration, meaning no fuel is utilised to burn particulates and no energy is lost to cool down exhaust gases. HI-SCR offers multiple advantages including reduced fuel consumption, extended diesel particulate filter (DPF) life and increased safety.
This vehicle also features Iveconnect – an integrated satellite navigation, infotainment, fleet management and telematics system which allows fleet operators to communicate with drivers, whilst having access to accurate location information at any time.
It is finished in striking Dakar Green paintwork, to reflect Iveco's close involvement with the Dakar-2016 winning Petronas Team De Rooy Iveco squad. Iveco uses the Dakar Rally as the ultimate proving ground to confirm the robustness of its vehicles.
