Generating this much torque at such low rpm could be very useful to carry out many heavy tasks on construction site where short distance travel is prominent.
Also, a top speed of 70 km/h and a decent gradeability of 29% can be achieved with its heavy duty 6-Speed G-750 gear transmission box with twin synchro cone. Its 380 mm diameter Single Plate Dry Friction Push type clutch plate helps in making the overall transmission process of power and gears smoother.

With its turning radius of 9,900 mm for option A and 11,050 mm for option B, it can easily be maneuvered on narrow roads.
