iveco 4x4

here are some pics of our iveco 4x4. it has a sliding roof with a removable cross bar for loading of wood as we tend to do 1 crane job a week and many of the smaller logs can be lifted into the back. We have covered the rear panel with 18mm marine ply to protect the back as the force of the chip quickly dented it.
This tipper body has been specifically designed to our requirements and are therefore unique. There is also a ladder at the rear which is a god send for the older worker like myself as its quite a climb into the back of the truck.
Its taken a year of hard wrangling to get these vehicles due to the usual council bs, but they have really proved themselves in some difficult terrain.

Re: iveco 4x4

they have tried other tyres and have decided that these were the best ones for a mixture of road and off road

payload is 3 ton, had about that on the other day while off road, it did roll about a bit as the weight is high up but it went up a 40 degree slope in 3rd gear and low ratio no problem. it is good fun off road!!!
