HINO South Africa now of­fers its cus­tomers the choice of sin­gle or dou­ble rear wheels on its 1322 four­wheel drive model in the pop­u­lar 500 Series.

This fol­lows re­quests from op­er­a­tors for this op­tion to suit a va­ri­ety of of­froad ap­pli­ca­tions in­clud­ing forestry, farm­ing, min­ing, and con­struc­tion as well as the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions in­dus­try.

The new model also gets the ben­e­fit of be­ing fit­ted with a Euro 3 com­pli­ant en­gine in­stead of the pre­vi­ous Euro 2 power unit.

The fit­ment of this com­mon rail fuel in­jec­tion sys­tem to the Hino J08E en­gine per­mits the in­stal­la­tion of the oblig­a­tory speed lim­iter now re­quired in South Africa. In the case of the Hino 1322 it will limit top speed to 80km/h.

This four-wheel drive model does not re­quire ABS brak­ing, which is fit­ted to the other mod­els in the Hino 500 Series range.

The sin­gle-wheel rear axle, which is now avail­able on this model, im­proves its of­froad han­dling ca­pa­bil­i­ties and makes for more ef­fi­cient op­er­a­tion in sandy con­di­tions.

The sin­gle wheel fit­ment also has a ben­e­fit in terms of im­proved fuel con­sump­tion. — WR.

The Hino 500 Series 1322 is now avail­able with a choice of a sin­gle rear wheel or dual wheels.
