“We have a truck to suit every budget and application, so whatever you need, in whatever specification, you can find it at Hino Indongo,” Jorinda Heymans said.
New and improved range
Hino Indongo recently introduced 300-Series trucks in a revised range which has been carefully selected to provide a transport solution to best meet the requirements of its customers involved in a host of varied operations throughout the country.
Although the number of models in the range remains 12, there are some significant changes in the model mix.
Most importantly, the number of models with a six-speed fully automatic transmission has now increased from four to seven, covering all major model variants, with three of them fitted to crew cabs.
Two of the 614 models have a five-speed manual transmission, albeit a new model gearbox with revised ratios, while the other manual gearbox models now have six speeds.
The power to perform
All Hino 300-Series trucks are powered by a four-cylinder, four-litre turbocharged diesel engine.
Some models use it in a lower output form (105 bhp or 78 KW of power and 263 Nm of torque), while the models with a higher GVM rating use it with a higher output (155 bhp or 116 kW of power and 404 Nm of torque).
Hino 300-Series wheelbase lengths are 2.525 metres for the shorter versions and go up to 4.2 m for the longest derivative, ready to suit your applications.
Both the 614 models, with a 5.5-ton GVM, and 714 range, with a 6.5-ton GVM, have short- and long-wheelbase manual transmission derivatives as well as short wheelbase automatics.
The 816 models have a GVM of 7.5 tons, and are short wheelbase models, one with automatic transmission and the other with the six-speed manual.
The 916 models have a GVM of 8.5 tons and both sport long wheelbases with one having an automatic transmission and the other the six-speed manual.
Catering for your crew
The range is rounded off with three crew cab models – 714, 816 and 916 – all long wheelbase derivatives with well-proven and fuel efficient six-speed automatic transmission.
“The availability of automatic transmission on the 916 models has been welcomed by many operators who had requested this specification,” Hino SA vice president Ernie Trautmann said.
