The new 14-tyre, 4-axle, 41T GVW haulage truck comes with an innovative dual tyre lift axle to cater for some of the key heavy-duty long-haul transport applications.
To serve the customer best by offering tailor-made transport solutions that enable the highest productivity, superior total cost-of-ownership and a profitable fleet, Indian truck makers are always on the lookout at offering innovative products.
The medium and heavy-duty, multi-axle truck segment in India is extremely vital in the overall transport sector, as these giant trucks are instrumental in shipping the bulk of the cargo volumes that stimulate the overall economy. The large and medium truck fleet-owners- the key customers of these trucks are not only demanding but also highly informed, and thus expect modern trucks. To address the changing dynamics of the industry, truck makers work meticulously to offer the most suitable truck for any given application.
Eicher Trucks, the leading full-range player, is also at the forefront of bringing the most relevant truck to its HCV customers. The company has a strong medium and heavy truck portfolio that serve all the key applications in haulage, tipper and tractor-trailer segments. To offer a compelling solution to its HCV customer, the company recently introduced an all-new 14-tyre multi-axle truck- the Pro 6041. Targeted at the applications such as tanker, market load, cement, flyash, container among others, the Pro 6041 truck comes with an innovative dual lift axle to help you save fuel cost and take greater payload.
Eicher already caters for the 14-tyre segment with its highly regarded Pro 6042, which is known for its superior fuel efficiency, higher payload and greater overall performance for a profitable fleet. However, to address the growing needs of customers in certain applications in the segment, Eicher made some key changes in the Pro 6041 specifically for certain heavy-duty cargo shipments.
The Pro 6041 is a 40.5T gross weight truck fitted with 14-tyres with just 4 axles. However, unlike the traditional 14-tyre truck in the category which comes with standard configuration 5-axles with single tyre lift axles, Eicher is offering the Pro 6041 with two tyre lift axles. The truck is offered as flexible and profitable, which prevents the wear and tear of tyres as well as save a lot of fuel cost.
The other key aspect of this truck includes the Eicher VDX5 engine that produces 240hp of power at a massive 900 Nm of torque-this configuration ensures your truck gets the best mileage, superior operating economics and also most ideal to weight ratio. The Pro 6041 is equipped with all the familiar, yet proven aggregates, Eicher’s factory fitted cabin along with necessary sales and support across the length and breadth of India.
The Pro 6041 is available in 5800 and 6800 mm of wheelbase in chassis and cabin configuration with cargo loading bodies of 7917 mm, 8822 mm and 9595 mm. The fuel tank is a 350L capacity along with 295/90R20 tyres with 18% gradeability.
Like the rest of its HCV truck range, Eicher promises to deliver greater value with the Pro 6041 multi-axle haulage truck. The higher level of torque helps you with more trips, the super quality aggregates supported by the latest truck technologies make sure the truck provides a greater return for long. Similarly, the Eicher cabin is cosy and comfortable for fatigue-free driving over long stretches, resulting in a higher turnaround time. This is complemented with standard technologies like Eicher Live-telematics, fuel-coaching, M-Booster + and cruise control for exceptional productivity and ample vehicle utilisation levels.
