Industry Trailers and body builders

This truck is operating in a mountain environment, with steep incline. This makes saving weight even more important. The new tipper body design is made of Hardox® 450, increasing the heavy duty tipper’s load capacity by about 8% compared to similar solutions of standard design. In addition to this, the life-time of the body is doubled from 5 years to 10 years.
