MORE AUTO CREW CAB HINOS
HINO SA announced it will enlarg its 300-Series truck line-up.
Major users of these popular medium trucks include bakeries, security companies and local municipalities, with the latter favouring crew cabs when teams are used for work projects.
Vice President of Hino SA Ernie Trautmann said extensive market research with both dealers and customers preceded the decision and show a need for more crew cab bodies and the option of automatic transmission,
“At present we only have the 815 model with both these specification items, but aim to improve that situation shortly.”
“Trucks fitted with the smooth-shifting, six-speed automatic transmission designed, developed and manufactured by Hino are finding increasing favour with operators as they are easy-to-drive thereby reducing driver fatigues, allow the driver to concentrate fully on the road and traffic situation and cut maintenance costs. This is the ideal solution for owner drivers of which there are a fair number in this market segment,” added Trautmann. — WR.
More Hino 300 trucks will soon have automatic transmission.
