The new model range comes with a more powerful 320 HP BSVI diesel powertrain, providing high wheel-end torque required to negotiate tough and gradient mining roads. The vehicles have industry-leading body capacities, benefiting customers in the mining sector. Also on display was the new BharatBenz 48T rigid tipper and 28T RMC.
BharatBenz offers a wide range of tipper products starting from 6-wheeler 13T medium duty trucks to 22-wheeler 55T trucks (tip trailers). These trucks are used in extensive applications such as surface construction, mining, irrigation, tunneling, and intra-city distribution.
BharatBenz’s new generation products are transforming the RMC (ready mix cement) application with engine-driven PTO solutions suiting every concreting requirement. Said Rajaram K, Vice President, BharatBenz Marketing, Sales and Customer Service, “BharatBenz has proven its dominance in the heavy-duty truck segments, especially in the Construction and Mining sector. Our product range is designed to contribute towards nation building and has been key to several infrastructure-related projects across India.”
“BharatBenz has the best-in-class fuel efficiency and best uptime of over 90% for first five years of operation with highly durable powertrain and aggregates. The company has enabled customers to complete more than 145 mining projects on or ahead of schedule and has 60 sites that are being actively monitored through its dealer partners. We are proud of the fact that the highest running BharatBenz mining truck has covered more than 37,000 hours and is still going strong. This segment is likely to account for approximately 35% of the overall heavy-duty segment and we are certain that our new BharatBenz tipper truck will be a game-changer for the mining industry,” he informed.
BharatBenz also has the 4828RT truck in its portfolio which offers best-in-class fuel efficiency, increased productivity, easy maneuverability, and the signature ‘BharatBenz comfort’. DICV has brought in several innovations in the 4828RT with intel-lift, single chamber headlamp with daytime running lights and parabolic bogie suspension with bolsters in the rear. The 4828RT model can be used for surface construction like blue metal, coal, fly ash, sand, and other construction materials.

BharatBenz vehicles will now feature segment-leading innovations in the new range such as intel-lift, hill holder, parabolic bogie suspension with bolsters in the rear and more. Safety is a key parameter in our design philosophy and the new products meet the latest HDT cabin crash norms including roll-over protection.
