Iveco’s New Daily E6 range will take pride of place on the joint Iveco and North East Truck & Van stand at Tip-Ex 2016, just weeks after its international launch. It is joined by models from across the Iveco truck range, together with a CASE 821F wheel loader, manufactured by Iveco’s sister company CASE Construction Equipment – part of CNH Industrial.
New Daily E6 4×4
The new light commercial vehicle family is represented on Iveco’s indoor stand by a New Daily E6 4×4 (5517W), with a gross vehicle weight of 5.5 tonnes and mounted with a dropside body. Sitting on 225/100 R 16 Michelin off-road tyres, it stands out for its go-anywhere capability, rugged off-road chassis and tough three-piece steel front bumper.
Purpose-designed for the construction, emergency services, farming, forestry, local authority and utilities sectors, this powerful 180 hp model is compatible with a wide range of specialist bodies and ancillary equipment, and offers multiple PTO choices on the transfer box and gearbox. The transfer box provides for high, low and neutral drive ratios, selectable with the vehicle in motion and, for on and off road conditions, with the vehicle at rest. This ensures a choice of 24 forward drive gears (12 for mixed routes and 12 for off-road routes), plus four reverse gears.
New Eurocargo tipper
Joining the New Daily E6 on Iveco’s stand is a New Eurocargo (75E16) 4×2 tipper, voted International Truck of the Year 2016 for its commitment to technology and focus on low total cost of ownership and sustainable transport.
This 7.5 tonner is built with a Brit-Tipp body featuring Edbro tipping gear and supplied through Iveco’s DriveAway programme, which allows customers to buy bodied New Eurocargo vehicles from stock, and have them on the road almost immediately.
Launched in 2015 as ‘the truck the city likes’ – this model features a day cab and an automated ZF EuroTronic transmission, for ultimate driver convenience and safety.
Iveco’s indoor line-up is completed with a Trakker Hi-Track (AD340T41K) 8×4 rigid, plated at 32 tonnes and mounted with a 15m³ Boweld Taperlite heavy-duty body. The specification also includes a PM on-board weighing system, Edbro front-end tipping gear and a Vertiloc air-operated tailgate.
Like all Iveco truck models, this Trakker offers fleets multiple benefits thanks to its HI-SCR technology, which enables Iveco to achieve Euro VI standards without requiring EGR. Benefits include weight reduction, optimised fuel consumption and increased durability thanks to a less complex, yet highly efficient, technology.
The Cursor 13 engine featured in this model produces 340 hp and 2,200 Nm of torque, driven through a ZF 12-speed EuroTronic gearbox which can be driven in semi-automatic or fully automated mode to best suit the terrain.
External display vehicles at Tip-Ex include a second Trakker 8×4 rigid (AD340T41K), fitted with a 14m³ Thompson Loadmaster Lite tipper body and Edbro front-end tipping gear. The specification also includes a PM on-board weighing system and an Autoloc air-operated tailgate, plus twin strobe beacons (front and rear) and a Brigade reversing camera.
This vehicle stands out for featuring Iveconnect – an integrated satellite navigation, infotainment, fleet management and telematics system which will allow fleet operators to communicate with drivers, whilst having access to accurate location information at any time. The system also includes a comprehensive Driving Style Evaluation tool, which acts as a fully-fledged, cost-efficient, on-board driving instructor to assess driving style and provide suggestions for reducing fuel consumption. It also allows the driver to communicate directly with Iveco’s 24/7 Assistance Non-Stop call centre in the event of an incident, resulting in a rapid response from the closest Iveco dealer.
New Eurocargo road sweeper
Joining the Trakker on display outside is a new generation of road sweeper developed with Johnston Sweepers for the UK market, and represented at Tip-Ex by a New Eurocargo 150E25K. Its launch sees Iveco re-enter the road sweeper market with its first Euro VI product.
Iveco’s New Eurocargo sweeper chassis will be offered in 7.5, 12, 15 and 18 tonne models, and in left-hand drive, right-hand drive and dual steer variants.
The low-speed environment and frequent stop/start nature of sweeper work is a perfect match for Iveco’s HI-SCR technology, offering the clear advantages of a Euro VI solution which avoids the need for forced regeneration.
CASE wheel loader
Completing the line-up of display vehicles outside is a CASE 821F wheel loader fitted with a compost fork attachment which is part of CASE’s renowned F series range, comprising models from the 521F, 11.9 tonne up to the 1121F, 27.3 tonne. All models in this range over 14 tonnes benefit from Tier 4 Final (Stage IV) emissions requirements.
The 821F is fitted with a 6.7 litre diesel engine. Air intake uses a turbocharger with air-to-air cooling. No EGR valve is used, only fresh air is taken for combustion and no extra cooling system is needed. Injection is via Common Rail Multiple Injection with an HI-eSCR (DOC + SCR) After Treatment System. It also benefits from CASE’s unique Proshift transmission, a five-speed powershift with lock up. This eliminates torque converter losses from second gear up to fifth gear, helping to reduce cycle times and fuel consumption, and the CASE heavy duty cooling cube whose unique design is exceptionally effective in dusty conditions, means better reliability and more uptime.
Ride & Drive
Throughout the three day event visitors can book a test drive, departing from the showground, in a Daily Hi-Matic 35S13 panel van featuring Iveco’s class-exclusive eight-speed fully automatic gearbox.
The test-drive vehicle has been specified with the ‘Plus pack’ and ‘Top pack’, which adds a wealth of options including cruise control, heated and electrically adjustable mirrors, bulkhead trim, air-conditioning, suspended driver’s seat with armrest and lumbar support, plus additional storage compartments above the windscreen.
