Procurement Guidelines

The rule to choose a truck:

Tractor Truck

1.For carrying containers on deck:

Terminal-use tractor truck with side cabin is recommended. The engine's power is from 260 to 290 HP, and the engine with a low speed and high torque. And usually running at speeds of less than 45 km/h, the traction weight of less than 60 tons.

2.For logistic and transportation:

For logistics companies and high way transportation with towing weight less than 35 tons, time is very important. So we recommend you the truck at high speed. Because the road condition usually is the first class highway; for the horsepower, 320 to 420 horsepower is better, aluminum alloy gear box with 10 or 12 forward, single stage deceleration bridge small ratio is less than 4, and with the tubeless tire like models 295/80R22.5 or 315/80R22.5. The economical speed is 75 to 105 km/h. You can also choose the air guide plate and side cover plate, which can reduce the air resistance and save fuel when driving.

3.For heavy load tractor trucks,

The towing weight between for heavy load tractor trucks is 50 to 70 tons: We recommend that you could choose the truck with more than 400 HP Engine, double Reduction Axle with bigger 4.42 or 4.8, and with radial tire model 11.00R20 or 12.00R20. These models’ economic speed is 75 to 90 km/H.

4. For super-heavy load tractor trucks,

This model is used for mining transport and towing weight is over 100 tons. The chassis of the tractor truck is super strong, more than 420 horsepower, radial tires, big rear axle with ration like 5.73, and the driving speed is less than 55 km/h.

5.For Extremely poor road conditions:

All wheel drive trucks are recommended, such as 4x4, 6x 6, and even 10x10 if it’s necessary.


Dump Truck

1.For mining use:

A short wheel base could improve the strength of the frame and vehicle trafficability. For transmission, 10 speed transmission with bigger input torque is acceptable. For engine, we recommend 371 HP. For drive axle, mine use drive axle is required with double reduction, differential lock and inter differential. For tires, we recommend the radial tire like 12.00R20. The dump body should be able to carry large stones, and the back door of the body should be movable. The thickness of steel can be made to bottom 16 mm, side and back 12 mm to meet the requirement of the mine. For the lifting system, HYVA front lifting system is strong and stable.

2.For city construction:

These trucks are usually used in city with the driving distance less than 200 km, and the road condition is good. Therefore we recommend you to choose the engine power from 336hp to 380hp. 6x4 and 8x4 driving type are for the different loading weight. For transmission, 10 and 12 speed transmission are optional. For other details, we recommend double reduction axle, ratio from 4.42 to 5.73, and radial tires 12.00R20. For the dimension of the cargo body, 6 * 4 is from 5400mm to 6000mm, and 8x4 is 6200mm to 8500mm.

3.For middle-distance transport:

The driving distance is no more than 200 kilometers, the drive axle can choose 4.42 or 4.8, and 8x4 models could transport more in once time to reduce the cost. 10 and 12 speed transmission is optional. Tubeless tires also is good enough. The dimension of the cargo body is from 6200 mm to 8500 mm, front lifting system.
