The Iveco Stralis X-Way is the crossover between the road-loving Stralis and the heavier duty Trakker.
It is extremely lightweight – It tops the class in payload, which is vital in these on/off road operations. The X-Way Super Loader version on an 8×4 chassis developed for concrete mixer applications weights in at less than 8,845 kg.
This best-in-class kerb weight was achieved through a number of design choices such as the redesign of the mechanical rear suspension, the chassis architecture and cross members optimisation, and the 400hp IVECO Cursor 9 engine, new front ‘1-leaf’ and rear ‘2-leaf’ springs, 800- Nm PTO without clutch and optional aluminium rims and air tanks.
As with most Iveco trucks, the lineup is impressive with 2- and 4-axle models and an 8×4 tridem; artics and rigid. A choice of three engines (Cursor 9, Cursor 11, which is new on the 6×4 and 8×4 versions, and Cursor 13) and three transmissions (manual, Allison automatic and ZF Hi-Tronix 12- or 16-speed automated).
As a relatively new model, the Stralis X-Ways are few and far between. The model has lost the ‘Stralis’ part with the launch of the new S-Way in 2020 and will then be know as simply the X-Way. This means that the relatively short lifetime of the ‘Stralis’ version dictates that these pages will never be full of these trucks for sale.
In 2021 Iveco announced the replacement for the Stralis X-Way – simply called the X-Way to match the S-Way and T-Way ranges that replaced the Stralis and the Trakker.
Hereford-based aggregate, concrete, and landscaping products suppliers Radbournes have increased their IVECO fleet over recent months by taking delivery of another 8x4 Stralis X-WAY tipper and one Eurocargo 4x2 tipper. Specified in ‘OFF’ configuration, they feature shallower, steel front bumpers and provide a greater ground clearance than X-WAY’s that can be ordered in either ON or ON+ Coinciding with Radbournes’ 40th anniversary IVECO forms the mainstay of its aggregates collection and delivery business as it moves away from its solus fleet with a competitor brand. The Radbournes name has become synonymous across Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Powys, and Worcestershire for providing a…>
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.
