Cattle graziers and livestock carriers have welcomed the increased opportunities available with the all-new Hino 500 Series Wide Cab range.
Vanderfield Hino Dealer Principal Bruce Vandersee keenly points out that the Japanese manufacturer has invested significantly in these new trucks.
The result of this is greatly enhanced safety, driver comfort, driving performance, and the flexibility to suit almost any application for this size vehicle.
“Of particular importance to our Queensland customers is the increased GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) in Hino GH 1828, GH 1832 and GH 1835 models when used with the concessional S10 Livestock Loading” said Mr Vandersee.
“Increasing the model range to over 50 provides our customers with an opportunity to engage in different applications.
“The new models incorporate innovative approaches with a high level of attention to detail.”
The Hino 500 Series Wide Cab boasts the most comprehensive active safety package of any Japanese truck in the medium duty truck category.
“In an Australian-first for this class, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is now fitted as standard across the new Wide Cab range.”
The Hino safety package also includes a night vision-enabled reverse camera, ABS, Anti Slip Regulator (ASR), UN ECE R29-rated cab strength, a driver SRS airbag, ADR84/00 Front Underrun Protection System (FUPS), easy start, cruise control and fog lamps.
Significant upgrades have been made to the J08E and A09C engines to enhance output and lower emissions.
“Our vehicles offer the latest engine technology with improved drive-ability as a result of increased peak power and a broader spread of torque across the engine RPM.
“Transmission options include 6-speed Allison automatic transmissions available across the range, or a 6- or 9-speed synchromesh manual dependent upon the model selected.”
The 500 Series Wide Cab also includes a host of features inside the cab to assist driver comfort and reduce driver fatigue.
These include a tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel, ISRI drivers air-suspended seat with integrated seatbelt, cruise control, and a new instrument panel.
On the exterior there is a new, more aggressive look to the grille and front, plus a new staircase design for the entry/exit steps
The new Hino 500 Series Wide Cab range also has a next-level chassis design and a range of suspension options.
Every Hino truck is also supported by Hino Advantage. This is a suite of innovative business building solutions that can dramatically reduce costs and improve operational efficiency for the customer.
