Nottingham-based Oakfield Plant & Transport has taken delivery of four new Scania XT 8x4 trucks with single skin steel Thompsons Loadmaster Lite tipper bodies.

The 18-plate XTs with 18,500kg plus payload capacities, feature 450hp engines, automatic gearboxes, large cabs and Scania retarders for improved braking performance.

They include air-operated, automated tailgates meaning the driver does not have to get out of the cab when loading or tipping, speeding up the whole tipping cycle.

The trucks will work on a range of jobs from heavy duty site clearance to delivering all types of quarry products. Transport manager Alex Bausor said the Loadmaster Lite is reliable and gives the company zero downtime.

He explained: “What ultimately counts though is how much sheer work the truck can deliver for us, so the accent is really on how we can achieve maximum overall vehicle performance.”
