After the show, the vehicle will go into service with Purfleet-based Brocks Haulage, which already has several Stralis X-Way 8x4 tippers in its fleet. The new addition will be supplied with a wet kit for operating the firm’s tri-axle tipping trailers.
The truck maker will also be exhibiting a Stralis X-Way 8x4 rigid, part of the North East Truck & Van demonstrator fleet. This vehicle will feature a Boweld tipper body for heavy-duty work in on/off-road applications.
The demonstrator has been built by IVECO in ‘OFF’ chassis specification – one of three options available alongside ‘ON’ and ‘ON+’. This ensures the vehicle is suitable for off-road missions, with a set-up combining excellent ground clearance and the ability to tackle steeper approach angles.
It will appear alongside a 3.5-tonne Daily tipper and a Stralis NP (Natural Power) tractor unit, which will be available for testing on local roads from the dedicated vehicle demonstration area.
