This vehicle is aimed at the smaller mining and bulk earthworks contractors that require a fast, versatile vehicle that is suitable for short- or long-haul operation. The very high power-to-weight ratio of 6.9 kW/t GVM offers astonishing uphill performance when pulling out of excavations or operating in hilly country. Continuous cruise speeds of up to 80 km/h are possible on good surfaces even when fully laden. Custom-specified gearing allows fully laden starts on inclines as steep as 1 in 3. This vehicle can be fitted with high flotation sand tyres for operation in sandy or desert terrain.
