Commercial Vehicle - - COVER STORY -

Medium ca­pac­ity tip­pers in the 16-tonne to 25-tonne range make ver­sa­tile crea­tures. They are ca­pa­ble of find­ing work at the con­struc­tion site; at a high­way pro­ject, and at a min­ing site. There are nu­mer­ous other du­ties MCV tip­pers can per­form ef­fi­ciently. They are work­horses that are mod­ern in con­struc­tion, ef­fi­cient and ca­pa­ble of liv­ing many lives in one. The Mahin­dra Blazo 25 found favour be­cause of its mod­ern build, world-class plat­form ar­chi­tec­ture and com­pet­i­tive pric­ing. Equipped with a 16 cu. m. (rock or box) body, 14 cu. m. (rock or box) body, and 20 cu. m. (rock) body that of­fers a 11 to 12.5-tonnes of pay­load against a GVW of 25-tonne, the Blazo 25 is pow­er­ful and fit for tough off-road tasks such as those found at mines. Pow­ered by a 274 hp 7.2-litre six-cylin­der com­mon-rail diesel engine that is mated to a nine-speed gear­box, the Blazo 25 is equipped with dual cir­cuit pneu­matic brakes. Priced com­pet­i­tively, the tip­per fea­tures multi-mode to help save fuel when run­ning empty or un­der par­tial load. Other fea­tures in­clude a smart SCR ex­haust af­ter treat­ment sys­tem, su­pe­rior pulling ca­pac­ity, best-in-class grade-abil­ity, and a clutch booster.
