Iveco launches driveaway stock tipper option

Iveco has announced it’s working with Thompsons UK to produce stock tippers and tipper grabs built on the X-Way 8x4 chassis ready for customers to driveway. The standard tipper specification includes a single-skinned Loadmasterlite body with front-end tipping gear, air operated auto locking tailgate and loadcells. The tipper grab comes with an Epsilon M125 classic crane with double-skinned Loadmaster body and air operated auto locking tailgate.

 

Customers can choose for the body to be painted in their company colours or the tippers are finished in black as standard. Driveaway stock features two engine options, a 420hp or 460hp Cursor engine. The 32-tonne X-Ways offer payloads of around 18.7-tonnes for the tipper and 16.5-tonnes for the tipper grab. 

 

Patrick Farbrace, IVECO UK’s truck business line director, said: “The launch of the Driveaway programme makes the X-Way even more accessible for operators. Already dealers and customers have responded well to the programme, with multiple units being sold on the back of providing stock availability. Our strong relationship with Thompson Group and their excellent bodies makes this a great customer proposition”

 

Thompsons already has a number of X-Ways in off-road configuration at its Dover facility, which reduces delivery time from months to weeks. One customer has already taken delivery of an X-Way tipper within a week of ordering thanks to the new driveaway programme. Vehicles can be fitted with different sized fuel tanks and alloy wheels and Thompsons offers optional extras at a cost for features like strobe beacons, work lights, rear chevrons and cameras. 

 

Scott Burton, Thompsons UK director, said: “We are very proud to be associated with IVECO and help facilitate a mission-ready product for operators with minimal lead time. All of our bodies are designed and built from scratch in the UK, and we also run a comprehensive aftersales maintenance and repair service for Thompsons’ equipment to ensure it is always in optimum condition.”
