Tata LPK 2523 HD 9S - Expert Review
The Tata LPK 2523 HD 9S is a high deck tipper powered by a 5883 cc BS IV engine. Earlier it came with the same engine and power configuration, but was equipped with a 6-speed gearbox. Now a tried and tested G1150-DD 9-speed gearbox has been used. Along with a single plate dry friction clutch with a booster for reduced pedal effort, this makes the 2523 perfect for carrying coal, stone, gravel, sand and concrete.
Power steering coupled with a 48% gradeability in the crawler gear, allows this tipper to make short work of steep climbs with low traction. The LPK2523 is available in scoop or box bodies, making it suitable for multiple applications. The vehicle comes ready to use from the factory and it can be put to work from the first.
Engine: six-cylinder, 5883cc, BS IV
Wheelbase: 3880 mm
Gross Vehicle Weight: 25000 Kg
Engine & Performance
The Tata LPK 2523 HD 9S engine is a 6.0-litre BS IV emission compliant unit which puts out 850 Nm of torque at 1500 rpm and 170 kW of power at 2500 rpm. These healthy power figures do not come at the expense of waste exhaust gases, as the exhaust uses the Selective Catalytic Reduction technology. A 35-litre tank of Diesel Exhaust Fluid is used to clean the fumes before it is let out into the atmosphere. This helps keep the powerful engine compliant to the current norms.
The 9-speed gearbox has 1 crawler gear + 8 forward gears. The crawler gear ratio is 12.87 as compared to 9.13 of the 1st gear. This increased ratio of the crawler gear gives the Tata LPK 2523 HD 9S a gradeability of a whopping 48% as compared to the 34% which the first gear provides.
This tipper gets a 300-litre fuel tank, so that work can be done uninterrupted.
Vehicle Build & Load Capacity
The LPK 2523 has a heavy duty build and comes with anti-roll bars at both the front and rear.
The LPK 2523's Gross Vehicle Weight is 25000 kg, with two tipper capacities available; 16 CuM Box and 14 CuM Scoop.
Handling & Suspension
Tata LPK 2523 HD 9S uses a ladder type heavy duty frame as its chassis, with a depth of 285 mm, flange width of 65 mm and thickness of 7 mm. A wheelbase of 3880 mm makes the LPK 2523 extremely stable under full load. It has a turning radius of 17 metres.
The front suspension is a semi-elliptical leaf spring and rear is an inverted bogie suspension. There is an optional Ultimax Suspension available, which gets Ultimax Spring with rubber bushings at the front and Ultimax 37T Rubber suspension at the rear. There is no greasing required for the Ultimax suspension, a big boon to reduce maintenance.
The front axle is an extra heavy duty forged I Beam, reverse Elliot type, while the rear axle is an RA 109 SRT model with inter-axle differential lock, extra heavy duty hypoid gears and fully floating axle shafts. The rear axle ratios are optimised for better torque delivery to the wheels. The heavy-duty axles come with increased box, pinion and ring gear size which helps controlling wheel spin in low traction conditions.
Braking & Safety
The front and rear brakes are Full Air S-Cam with an Automatic Adjuster. The Engine Exhaust Brake acts as an Auxiliary Braking System.
The Parking brake is spring actuated on the rear wheel. The service brakes are Dual Circuit Full Air S-Cam.

From the front, the most striking visual aspect is the low positioned wraparound clear lens headlamps. The box shape of the cabin is as per the traditional design of tippers.
