8x4 Trucks for Sale (378)

Used 8×4 Trucks

8×4 trucks are more commonly known as ‘Eight Wheelers’.  They have four axles with two of the axles used to drive the truck.

Typically used for on/off road applications where the truck spends a lot of time on the roads, but will also need to access sites where the terrain is not perfect.  Examples or these are building sites, roadworks and quarries.

The 8×4 trucks are typically fitted with tipper bodies, although many hookloaders are in the same specification.

8×4 Axle Configurations

It is normal that the two non-drive axles both steer the truck, but we are seeing an increase in the use of a ‘Tridem’ configuration.  This is where the truck has one steer axle at the front, then two drive axles and a final steer axle at the back of the truck.

In terms of weight carrying ability, an 8×4 truck has a maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 32 tonnes.  This is the combined weight of the truck and the load.

These trucks usually work in payload sensitive operations, such as waste, bulk feeds or grain, so, the lighter the truck and body the better – as long as it can stand up to the battering these trucks are typically exposed to.

First Ever Tractor Unit is Actros Edition 1

When most businesses buy their first ever tractor unit, they reasonably might be expected to opt for a fairly standard model or perhaps even a second-hand truck. Cornish operator Brunel chose an alternative route in ordering the top-of-the-range 16-litre 625hp Actros 1 – one of a limited edition run of just 400 and just 35 in the UK. Still, the family waste and recycling business that also owns Plymouth Albion Rugby Club is keen to invest their money in top quality. In addition to the Actros came another new vehicle - an eight-wheeled Arocs tipper, which had been pre-bodied for…

Volvo FMX Tankers Good in a Tight Spot

Sludge can build up anywhere – that’s why Sutton Tankers’ trucks have to have excellent manoeuvrability as they have a number of trucks on contract to Yorkshire Water transporting the stuff around. So, after a full-on trial of Volvo’s FMX in tridem configuration, Suttons Tankers has now taken delivery of 14 new Volvo FMXs, the first rigids to join its fleet, after being impressed by the performance of their demonstrator supplied by local dealer Thomas Hardie Commercials. The order comprises a mix of seven 6x4 rigids and seven 8x4 tridems for use exclusively on the company’s contract transporting sludge for…

New 8×4 Arocs Tippers Delivered in a Month

Nobody wants to wait months for a truck, so being able to get a brand new, bodied tipper in such a short time frame was important to Barrachander Quarry boss Calum McCrae. Of course, the trucks have to perform as well. Since McCrae has been so impressed with the reliability of the 8x4 Mercedes-Benz Arocs he set to work three years ago he has just commissioned another two from Western Commercial. The Dealer’s customer-focused back-up was also crucial in convincing the Argyll-based operator to add more Mercedes-Benz tippers to a fleet in which a Swedish brand previously held sway. The…
