More sustainable – and profitable – transportation with tipper bodies in Hardox® 500 Tuf

Tough on wear, gentle on the environment. When Bennes Vincent upgraded to Hardox® 500 Tuf, they could build tippers that have less tare weight, take a higher payload and are more sustainable – and more profitable.
In July 2020, Bennes Vincent became the first tipper body builder in France to launch a new rear tipper line – Multi-Blocs – made entirely in Hardox® 500 Tuf steel after they upgraded from Hardox® 450. So why the upgrade?
Christophe Thal, sales director at Bennes Vincent, cites his customers: “They say it’s an excellent product that helps them optimize their truckload.” He estimates a tare weight reduction and payload increase of between 280 kg (617 lbs.) and 320 kg (705 lbs.) for each tipper body.
