UD Trucks NZ have announced the arrival of its new ‘ready-to-work’ factory built medium duty tipper, with the 1st units recently landed and available for a quick delivery.
The Croner PK 18 280, 4x2 Tipper comes fitted with a high-quality tipper body made by Steelmer, a Thailand based bodybuilder and steel fabricator who have been a supplier to domestic and export markets for over 15 years. The tipping bodies are manufactured using a New Zealand class leading combination of 6mm thick steel floor and 4mm steel in the sides, door, and headboard.
“The PK-18-280 Tipper payload capacity is an impressive 6,600kg. This coupled with an extra 20hp and nearly 20% more torque sets it apart from other factory-built tippers available”, comments Colin Muir, General Manager for UD Trucks NZ.
The PK 18 280 comes standard with an Allison 3000 fully automatic transmission enabling the unit to get up to speed with a full load easily, propelled by an impressive 1050Nm of torque from the 6 cylinder powerplant. UD Trucks NZ believe this is nearly 20% greater torque than other similar factory-built tippers.
“UD Trucks is known for its Ultimate Dependability and comfort. When you add in the impressive suite of specs you will find that UD is the premium everyday option for those requiring ‘ready-to-work’ medium duty tipper solutions”, said Colin.
