Iveco has showcased two new tipper options at the TipEx trade event in the UK.
At the heavier end of the scale is a new 32-tonne 8x4 Stralis X-Way in “Off” configuration, a tougher, more site-orientated variant of Iveco’s Stralis S-Way, featuring a tipper grab body. “Off” makes the X-Way more suitable for off-road applications giving it a 25-degree approach angle, partly thanks to its three-piece, shallow-angle steel bumper and N3G off-road homologation.
A Boweld Mightylite HD Grabmaster tipper grab body features towards the rear with Edbro tipping gear and a Palfinger Epsilon Classic crane. Wheelbase is 5,020mm, the rear uses air suspension and both front axles are rated at eight tonnes with the dual-drive rear bogie rated at 21 tonnes.
Up top, the low-roof day cab is fully equipped with LED lighting including front, rear and roof beacons. Other useful features include stability control, a tyre-pressure monitoring system, servo-assisted cab tilting, electrically-adjustable heated door mirrors, air horns radiator guards and an idle cut-off.
Comfort and connectivity are taken care of too with automatic climate control and a swivelling seven-inch infotainment touchscreen with smartphone mirroring. The on-board infotainment system additionally features DAB radio and TomTom live truck navigation.
Powering the X-Way is Iveco’s 11.0-litre HI-SCR Cursor diesel unit delivering 426hp through a 12-speed automatic gearbox with Rocking Mode.
On display at the smaller end of Iveco’s scale was a 3.5-tonne tipper based on a Daily chassis designed, primarily, with arboriculturists, i.e. landscape gardeners, in mind. The ARB Tipper featured at the TipEx show will come ready-built as part of Iveco’s Driveaway programme offering ready-made bodies on different chassis to suit different professions.
The tipper features twin rear wheels, a 3,750mm wheelbase and a 3.0-litre diesel engine delivering 160hp through a six-speed manual gearbox. Bearing in mind that the ARB will likely see some off-road use, it’s equipped with Iveco’s Construction Pack, meaning it gets a tyre-pressure monitoring system, sump guard, cross-axle locking differential, elliptical rear springs and towing electrics, in addition to Hill Descent Control and an off-road optimised traction control system.
The business-end of the ARB features remote-controlled three-stage electronic under-floor tipping gear with a sturdy high-sided aluminium tipping body containing aluminium tool lockers mounted behind the cab barn doors, all set on the Daily’s galvanised steel chassis. A ladder rack, pull-out rear step, LED safety beacons and towbar complete the ARB specification.
The cabin comes in Iveco’s Daily Business spec meaning it gets air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors and front fog lights.
Unfortunately, Iveco doesn’t yet offer the Driveaway ready-built programme in Ireland, so customers looking for an ARB-style tipper will need to get the body externally built on a Daily chassis.
