Leading commercial vehicle and
engine manufacturing company, Scania CV India Pvt. Ltd has launched the new P
440 8X4 20.2 Cu.m U-Body tipper. The P 440 U-Body tipper has been designed to
increase the productivity of mining tippers and improve the Total Operating
The P440 tipper was designed
to meet demanding conditions in the Indian subcontinent and offer maximum
operational capacity and fuel efficiency. The “U” design for the tipper body is
the first in its class for overburden removal application. The body’s
combination of “U” design and wear resistant steel increases the payload
carrying capacity by up to 5 percent while reducing the fuel consumption by
almost 5 percent due to low self-weight of the tipper body. It also improves
the stability of the vehicle by lowering the overall centre of gravity.
The P 440 U-Body tipper comes
with a mixture of time tested driveline and a new engine. It has a 13 litre,
440 HP engine and is capable of reaching peak torque at lower engine speed. It
is BSIV compliant through Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. This
when coupled with Scania patented Opticruise gear shift technology keeps the
gear shifts to an optimal number and directly benefits the customer by
improving fuel efficiency.
The Indian mining sector needs
tough vehicles that can ply under the most demanding of situations. With this
in mind, Scania put the P 440 U-Body tipper through intense testing for over
12000 hours of operations in some of the most demanding mines in India, before
launching it in the market.
