What is the World’s Safest Construction Truck?

November 7, 2018 0 Comments

The new Scania XT was recently revealed by Scania Australia during Melbourne’s International Mining and Resources Conference.

Dubbed as the world’s safest construction and mining truck, the new Scania XT promises to deliver a highly robust range of solutions for a wide variety of applications. It is equipped with Scania’s modular Euro 5 or Euro 6 SCR emission engines and Opticruise automated gear-changing, including the innovative clutch-on-demand feature to combat even the most challenging environments. Scania is known to have a solid history of overcoming tough environments and the same can be expected from the new range of Scania construction trucks.

The Scania XT range is built with a unique protruding steel front bumper, headlamp protection grilles, front under-bumper skid-plate, 40-tonne towing point in the centre of the bumper, and robust door mirror housings, as well as an elevated ride-height and all-steel parabolic leaf spring suspension. Your Civil Works business will also benefit from the full array of Scania operator solutions and services, giving you more control and peace of mind when it comes to duty of care and work health and safety.

The idea of launching the new Scania XT range came as a response to the positive growth that the company has received from the mining and resources sector in Australia. It is also a practical and safe solution for operators who are dealing with the overwhelming demands in the current domestic and civil infrastructure construction industries.

Mikael Jansson, Managing Director at Scania Australia, said the Scania XT was built for a range of construction and mining applications on sealed and unsealed surfaces.

“The Scania XT has been designed to shrug off tough conditions and a few bumps and scrapes without the need to visit a workshop to replace exterior fittings,” he said.

“We have the right products, the right services, and the right skills to help Australian mining and construction operators specify the perfect vehicle for their needs, securing maximum uptime and enhanced total operating economy, protecting their profitability, and therefore enhancing their long-term business stability” he added.
