Used 8×4 Trucks

Classic 8x4 Configuration
Classic 8×4 Configuration

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

8x4 Tridem Configuration
8×4 Tridem Axle Configuration

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.

Mercedes Arocs 3248

Mercedes Arocs is a True ‘Muck Monkey’

It’s a great-looking truck.

Rhys and Carly Ford, with their children Lewis, aged five, and Evie, two Standing out from the plain white trucks on the fleet, Rhys’s 8x4 Arocs was supplied to the Swindon-based aggregates and muckaway specialist by local Dealer Rygor Commercials and is the subject…

Iveco Stralis X-Way Tippers

IVECO Stralis X-WAY Payload Clinches Deal

With local tipping work it’s all about payload, payload, payload.  Alongside dealer service, Totnes, Devon-based Jeremy Bishop Haulage says that the extra payload the Iveco Stralis X-Way is giving them is the main reason for buying Iveco. L-R Will & Jeremy Bishop in front of their Iveco tipper fleet This means that the company has doubled its IVECO fleet by taking delivery of two Stralis X-WAY 26-tonne 6x4 tippers (AD260X42Z OFF) with Active Day (AD) cabs.

Scania liftable tandem bogie

Scania’s Lift Axle For 6×4 Drive Axles

Operators of Scania 8-wheel tippers or double drive 6x4 tractor units of tippers will have the chance to specify a new truck where one of the drive axles can disengage and lift to save up to 6% on fuel. Other savings for the operator can arise through reduced tyre wear and improved turning circle efficiency.  The savings come from empty running – not something tipper operators are that keen on doing so the applications in the UK are likely to be limited.  There are weight penalties to installing the system. Three bogie weights – 19, 21 and 26 tonnes –…

Mercedes Arocs 3258 Jetter Unit

A Jolly Green Giant New Mercedes-Benz Arocs Jetter

Supplied by Dealer Western Commercial, the high-riding Arocs 3258 is equipped to save up to 15 million litres of clean drinking water every year, and capable of doing the job of two or more trucks. The new Arocs is fitted…

Mercedes Arocs 3240 8x4 Grabloader

Repeat Business for Mercedes Arocs 8×4 Grabloaders

Here’s a good test of a truck and the availability of new trucks.  Leedale buys two Mercedes Arocs 8x4 tipper grabs and two from a competing manufacturer (who shall remain nameless here). Some ten months on, two more trucks are needed and the deal goes to Mercedes-Benz.  The trucks themselves must have played a large part in the repeat order heading towards Mercedes dealer, Rygor Commercials, but consider too that the deal was done and the trucks were delivered inside a fortnight.  That should be enough to clinch even a close deal. Like their predecessors, Leedale’s new trucks had been…
