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 Econ­omy.

Ragha­van Srini­vasa, Di­rec­tor, Sales (Trucks) at Sca­nia Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles In­dia Pvt. Ltd. said, “We at Sca­nia work to in­te­grate sus­tain­abil­ity into the core of the busi­ness. Sca­nia lever­ages in­no­va­tive think­ing, de­vel­ops part­ner­ships and works ex­ten­sively within the lo­gis­tics flow to cap­ture ef­fi­cien­cies and se­cure cus­tomer prof­itabil­ity. We are very con­fi­dent that P 440 U-BODY tip­per will de­liver on our prom­ise of driv­ing even more value and prof­itabil­ity for our cus­tomers.”

Sca­nia In­dia is com­mit­ted to build­ing in­no­va­tive and sus­tain­able so­lu­tions that meet the spe­cific re­quire­ments of dif­fer­ent sec­tors and re­gions. 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 un­par­al­leled com­bi­na­tion of “U” de­sign and su­pe­rior wear re­sis­tant steel in­creases the pay­load car­ry­ing ca­pac­ity by up to 5% while re­duc­ing the fuel con­sump­tion by al­most 5% 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 BS-IV com­pli­ant through Se­lec­tive Cat­alytic Re­duc­tion (SCR) tech­nol­ogy. This when cou­pled with Sca­nia­p­atented 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.
