Engine & Performance
The Tata LPK 3118 is powered by a Cummins ISBe 5.9 180 40 engine which produces a maximum power of 180 hp at 2500 rpm and peak torque of 700 Nm at 1500 rpm. These performance figures make the truck easy to use under difficult road conditions, which a tipper is regularly subjected to.
The gearbox on the LPK 3118 is a G1150-DD model, which has been successfully used on a range of trucks by Tata. This gearbox features a crawler gear as well, with a ratio of 12.87 as compared to 9.13 of the 1st gear, giving this tipper a gradeability of 33% and 23% respectively.
A single plate dry friction push type clutch transmits the power through the gearbox to the rear wheels.
The Cummins engine uses the effective Selective Catalytic Reduction technology with Tata’s Diesel Exhaust Fluid to reduce emissions without compromising performance and sticking to BS IV norms.
Vehicle Build & Load Capacity
A steel cabin along with a robust tipper body, ensure the Tata LPK 3118 will stand the test of time even under rigorous use in harsh working conditions.
This truck comes with an 18 CuM tipper capacity which is tiltable to 47 degrees for easier dumping of goods.
Handling & Suspension
Power steering makes handling of the Tata LPK 3118 easy under challenging conditions. With a turning radius of 19.6 m, this tipper can be manoeuvred in tight spots, which is often the case at mining/ constructions sites.
The ladder type heavy duty frame has a depth of 285 mm and width of 888 mm. This chassis provides the LPK 3118 with stability even at speeds of 70 kmph, which is where this truck tops off.
Suspension duties are looked after by a parabolic unit at the front and a semi-elliptical leaf spring at the rear. There is an optional Inverted Bogie suspension for the HD variant. With a ground clearance of 240 mm, the LPK 3118 smoothly drives over rough terrain.
The front axle is an extra heavy duty forged I beam, reverse elliot type, twin steerer axle. The rear axle uses the RA 109 SRT, which is extra heavy duty with hypoid gears and fully floating axle shafts.
Braking & Safety
Braking on the Tata LPK 3118 is taken care of by full air S-Cam with the automatic adjuster at the front and rear. This is supplemented with the engine exhaust brake as an auxiliary braking system. The service brakes come equipped with ABS, which improves the safety standard of the tipper.
The parking brake is a spring actuated brake on the rear wheel.
An anti-roll bar is used at the front but not on the rear. The LPK 3118 misses out on tubeless tyres, which would have been an improvement on the safety front.
Design & Comfort
The Tata LPK 3118 uses a traditional box type design, which is typical in the tipper segment. Modern design elements have been used on the day cabin with an adjustable driver’s seat. The seat is made of vinyl and melba fabric to improve the level of comfort for the driver.
This tipper is 8903 mm long, 2540 mm wide and 3332 mm high, giving it a formidable on-road presence. Front overhang of 33 degrees and 1340 mm allows it to climb over reasonably large obstacles with ease.
