IVECO had a stand at the Bauma 2019 exhibition in Munich earlier this month. Focused on the construction sector, they had a joint stand with CASE Construction Equipment. The vehicles on show were representative of the brand‘s wide offering for every mission – quarrying, recycling, urban construction and road building.

For the recycling sector, there was the natural gas powered Stralis NP 6×2 crane-tipper truck, combining the advantages of extremely clean and quiet operation with the payload and performance benefits of its diesel equivalent. The noise level as low as 71 dB (Piek Quiet Truck test) is a definite asset when operating in recycling facilities. All this, together with the outstanding manoeuvrability, compact overall dimensions, towing capacity (44 tonnes GVW) and big payload of the truck makes it ideal for recycling operations.

The Stralis X-WAY rigid three-way tipper truck is representative of IVECO‘s range specifically developed for construction logistics to provide the perfect crossing for on-road applications requiring off-road mobility. It combines IVECO‘s best fuel-efficiency and safety technologies with the renowned off-road robustness of its toughest vehicles to deliver high productivity with best-in-class payload and outstanding total cost of ownership. It can be relied on to deal with the driving conditions on a construction site while carrying the biggest payload in the sector, then go on to perform with excellent fuel-efficiency, safety and comfort on the road. It is available with a switchable hydraulic front-wheel drive, which presents particular advantages for a truck required to drive on- and off-road: fewer moving parts resulting in less wear and reduced consumption, lower weight and quieter running on the road.

The urban construction area featured the top-of-the-range model of the new IVECO Daily 4×4: the first 7-tonne gross vehicle weight 4×4 vehicle with payload up to 4300 kg in the market with a choice of body lengths up to 5m. It is part of IVECO‘s latest generation ‘go anywhere‘ vehicle range, which builds on this family‘s heritage of unlimited versatility, extreme robustness and high driving comfort, and extends the offering with new all-wheel drive configurations, manual or the class-exclusive 8-speed Hi-Matic gearbox, and new van versions. The extensive line-up includes cab, chassis cowl and crew cab models in 3.5, 5.5 and 7.0 tonnes and van models in 5.5 and 7.0 tonnes GVW versions with a choice of single wheels off-road and twin wheels all-road configurations.

The van models offer cargo volumes ranging from 9 to 18 m3 for the single wheel off-road and from 16 to 18 m3 for the twin wheel all-road showing the extreme versatility of the range. Powered by the F1C Euro VI 3.0-litre engine generating 180 hp and 430 Nm torque the Daily 4×4 can accomplish every mission on all terrains with ease. Drivers also benefit from features such as disk brakes with ABS and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) specifically developed for the 4×4 vehicle to guarantee top braking performance and durability.

The quarrying display featured the 65-tonne GVW new IVECO Astra HHD98x6 Euro VI in dumper configuration with a 24 m3 reinforced body, a full automatic transmission and special CE equipment allowing for the CE Certification according to the Machinery Directive. It is part of the Astra range of vehicles designed for heavy off-road applications in oil & gas, mining, quarrying, heavy construction and heavy haulage. It is among the most cost-efficient solutions for daily heavy-duty use under extreme conditions, when productivity and reliability are a priority. It combines the robustness, payload and reliability advantages of the rigid or articulated heavy-duty bodies typical of the industry with significantly lower total cost of ownership. With the possibility to provide the CE Certification, this machine complies with the most stringent regulations in terms of safety in quarries and construction sites.

Also on the stand was a Daily Hi-Matic in the set up and livery of a CASE service van equipped as a mobile workshop by bodybuilder SORTIMO. The vehicle featured IVECO‘s class-exclusive 8-speed automatic transmission and is powered by the F1C 3.0-litre engine, which delivers 180hp and 430 Nm torque. The rear air suspension reduces vibration, ensuring a smooth ride for the tools and equipment in the mobile workshop.
