A Nino 300 Series 7.5-tonner, a 500 Series 18-tonner with a dropside steel tipper body, a 700 Series 8x4 with a steel tipper body and a 700 Series 8x4 with a hookloader and sheeting system. Plus an MAN TGX 480 6x2 tractor. What product or innovation will you launch at the show? We are launching a new Nino 300 Series 7.5-tonne Euro-5 4x2 chassis cab. This vehicle will be available in a choice of wheelbases and in either manual or automatic gearbox.
What change would you make to the tipping industry if you had the power? Stop the implementation of whole vehicle type approval. We have managed without it up until now, so why change it? The way I see it, all it will achieve is additional paperwork and possible delays in vehicle delivery. And reduce the fuel duty on diesel to reduce the operational cost of the haulage industry.
