World première for 4x4 version of Iveco New Eurocargo, “International Truck of the Year 2016”, at BAUMA 2016



Iveco joins CASE Construction Equipment at the BAUMA 2016 exhibition, one of the world’s most important trade shows for the Construction industry, to present the New Eurocargo 4x4 truck and showcases its full range of vehicles for the sector.

Iveco takes part in BAUMA 2016, a leading exhibition for Construction, Building Material and Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles and Equipment, where it displays four key products developed for construction businesses: the New Eurocargo 4x4 on its first public appearance, the new Daily 4x4 steel 3-lateral tipper, the Trakker 6x6 3-lateral tipper and the Astra HD9 8x6 rear tipper.

For the second time Iveco teams up with sister brand CASE Construction Equipment at a major trade show to showcase their complementary offerings for the industry on the CASE stand FM.713/3.

New Eurocargo 4x4: European debut

In the medium-weight segment Iveco is showing the new 15-ton Eurocargo 4x4 displayed in the Infrastructure area of the CASE stand. This vehicle too belongs to a product family that has been very well received in the industry, having won the coveted title of “International Truck of the Year 2016”.

The New Eurocargo 4x4 is designed for the most demanding off-road work and is a good solution for construction and urban jobsites. It is available with a day or sleeper cab with standard roof. It has a gross vehicle weight of 11.5 or 15 tons and a range of wheelbases measuring from 3,240 to 4,150 mm. It runs a Tector 7 engine in 220 and 250 HP variants on the 11.5-ton version, and 250 and 280 HP variants on the 15-ton version. It is the only Euro VI medium range vehicle to meet emissions standards with a single anti-emission system, the hi-SCR system with passive Diesel Particulate Filter.

The New Eurocargo 4x4 incorporates several protections for off-road driving such as steel bumpers, retractable access steps and a specific radiator guard. It features a front towing jaw and is available with PTO. The ZF six-speed manual gearboxes feature a servoshift system for easy gear changing even in the most demanding work conditions. Permanent four-wheel drive is provided by a longitudinal differential, which distributes torque between the front and rear axles. It is possible to select a fast or slow distributor ratio according to conditions (on / off road). In addition, three diff locks 2 guarantee traction even in low-grip conditions. The exceptionally narrow steering angle ranging from 40 to 48 degrees, depending on the tyres, mean the Eurocargo is just as comfortable in urban sites as it is off-road.

New Daily 4x4: geared up for off-road

Following the New Daily’s great success as winner of the prestigious “International Van of the Year 2015” award, Iveco launched the New Daily 4x4. This vehicle is geared up for off road, for all tracks, for all conditions: on construction sites, for building and maintenance companies up to the highest altitudes. Its strength and durability are unrivalled in its class, thanks to its special off-road chassis. Indeed one of its key strengths is the C-section ladder frame chassis, which has always been typical of the Daily range, enabling the easiest body customisation and guaranteeing robust performance in all missions.

It runs a 4-cylinder, 3-litre F1C EuroVI heavy-duty common rail engine that develops a maximum power of 170 hp (125 kW) with a maximum torque of 400 Nm. The six-speed overdrive gearbox is coupled with the central transfer box with four low ranges in order to obtain 24 ratios. Thanks to its three differential locks, the New Daily 4x4 is able to tackle any slope and is capable of handling the most severe terrain, without any compromises as regards driving comfort. The vehicle is well suited to all types of missions, with a vast choice of PTOs available on the gearbox and the central transfer box, compatibility with on-road as well as off-road tyres, and the ability to front-mount other accessories like winches and snowploughs.

The New Daily is available in two versions, a single cab with two wheelbases (a short 3,050 mm variant and long 3,400 mm variant), and a crew cab with a 3,400 mm wheelbase, which can transport a crew of seven people.

Trakker: redefines impossible in quarry and construction sites

On display in the Quarry area of the stand is the Trakker 26-ton, 6x6, three-axle version fitted with a 3-lateral tipper. Designed and built for quarry and construction applications, the Trakker delivers outstanding performances on impenetrable, broken terrains withstanding the constant stresses of the most difficult conditions.

Every single component, beginning with the extra robust high-yield-strength steel frame, is chosen for strength and durability: this vehicle is a long-term investment. The Cursor 9 and Cursor 13 engines and the mechanicals take extreme conditions in their stride. The Trakker uses SCR 3 technology for the after-treatment of exhaust gases; this solution is designed to last the entire life of the vehicle and requires minimal maintenance. The Trakker features the revolutionary, third-generation INTARDER to reduce the demands on the service brakes, pushing the boundaries of what is possible while ensuring safety and reliability. The Trakker is engineered to reliably deliver class-leading productivity while reducing Total Costs of Ownership.

The Trakker has repeatedly proven its amazing capability for performing under pressure in the most difficult conditions pushing the boundaries of performance in the toughest rally race in the world, the Dakar. Most recently, two of Team PETRONAS De Rooy Iveco’s Trakkers competed in the Dakar 2016 and finished the race in fifth and tenth position, demonstrating the strength and reliability of this vehicle. In all the Dakar races the Trakker has competed in, it has shown that it can be relied on to deliver every time in the toughest situations.

Iveco Astra: world premiere for the mining industry

Making its world debut at BAUMA is the Astra heavy duty HD9 8x6 Euro VI dumper with 24 cm tipping body, featuring a GVW up to 60 ton. Powered by the FPT 13 liter Euro VI Cursor engine rated at 560 HP (412 kW) and driven by the automated 16 speed Astronic ZF transmission with integrated intarder, this machine is ideal for mining applications. The technical solutions adopted on this model contribute to increase the robustness, the reliability and the durability of the product, thus enhancing productivity. They include the heavy duty front and rear Kessler axles with reinforced parabolic suspensions, and the heavy duty chassis made of two flat and parallel side members (320 x 90 x 10mm + 6mm) for a greater stability and resistance in the most difficult working conditions.

The cab interior has been recently re-designed and optimised to match the excellent ergonomics and relaxing comfort of the new dashboard and instrument panel with the highest specialised functionality, in order to easily allow to face the hardest and most challenging off road mission.

Extra strong machines, ready for extreme conditions and environments. Easy to set up, repair and maintain through the entire life cycle. Robustness, versatility, mission dedication and loading capabilities are the key values of Iveco Astra HD9 range, designed for heavy off-road applications in mining, quarrying, heavy construction, oil & gas and heavy haulage.
