Indian commercial vehicle giant Tata Motors has launched Signa 4825.TK – India’s first 47.5-tonne multi-axle tipper truck for surface transport of coal and construction aggregates. It is pitched as the country’s largest tipper truck.
The Signa 4825.TK’s gross vehicle weight permits more load per trip with its 29 cubic metre box load body.
The newly-introduced tipper truck is specially designed to meet the customer’s need of high productivity and fast turnaround.
The Signa 4825.TK is backed with Cummins ISBe 6.7-litre BS6 engine with high power rating of 250hp and torque rating of 950Nm from 1000-1700rpm to promise faster turnaround time.
The powerful engine is mated to a heavy duty G1150 9-speed gearbox, with 430mm dia organic clutch. The gear ratios are designed particularly for surface transportation, with reduced fuel consumption.
The vehicle is equipped with 3 distinct drive modes – Light, Medium and Heavy. This is to assure optimum power and torque selection, based on the load and terrain, ensuring high fuel efficiency.
The tripper comes as a factory-built, ready-to-use vehicle with the 29 cubic metre tipper body and hydraulics. It is available in two configurations like 10×4, 10×2 to offer flexibility to the customer.
Speaking at the launch, RT Wasan, Vice President, Product Line, M&HCV, Tata Motors said, “We are delighted to introduce the Signa 4825.TK – recognising the needs of the customers such as those in construction and coal industry who wish to complete large projects ahead of time, we have developed India’s largest tipper, with gross vehicle weight of 47.5 tonnes.”
It comes with advanced features like spacious sleeper cabin, tilt & telescopic steering system, 3-way mechanically-adjustable driving seat and easy-shift gears.
Its suspended cabin ensures lower NVH characteristics and provides a comfortable ride even on rough roads.
Other features include Hill Start Assist (HSA), Engine Brake and iCGT brake for greater vehicle control and lower operating costs. The vehicle is also equipped with advanced electronic system with sensors to detect and prevent a possible topple while tipping, thus increasing the safety of the driver and the operators.
The tipper truck also comes with the standard fitment of Fleet Edge – Tata Motors’ next-gen digital solution for optimal fleet management.
The entire range of Tata Motors M&HCV trucks comes with the best-in-the-industry warranty of 6 years / 6 lakh kilometres. Tata Motors also offers Sampoorna Seva 2.0 and Tata Samarth – the company’s commitment to commercial vehicle driver welfare, uptime Guarantee, on-site service, and customised annual maintenance and fleet management solutions with each M&HCV.
