New shape Iveco Daily

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have or has anyone driven on of the new shape iveco tippers (not the 4x4 one)? Just wondering about positives or negatives with them.

I am assuming you mean the Daily? If so, yes I have run a 3.5 ton once for five years, now got 30K on clock. Mine is the 146bhp 2.3 engine. Overall I like it, especially the fact it is on a c section chassis and will not die of tin worm at a young age. Faults so far: N/S front wheel bearing change at approx 20K, needed helper springs from day one, but then so do lots on 3.5t tippers, clutch is not beefy enough but we cope with it, just had O/S rear caliper changed today due to the handbrake link in the caliper sticking on. Overall I would buy the same again.

I drove a 65 plate auto flat bed for a year, was a nice van, smooth but powerful, 8 speed gear box iirc. Mostly towing, it pulled really well. Have heard of issues with the panel vans, mostly dodgy electrics.
