It comes with 6-speed manual transmission along with 380 mm diameter push-type clutch with single plate dry friction, allowing you a gradeability of 22% again which is quite impressive for a truck of this capacity. An 80 kmph speed would give you a good pace bracket to play on different conditions. The vehicle provides you a torque of 675 Nm @ 1400-1600 rpm with a well-complementing turning radius of 10750 mm, assuring you a power-packed performance in all conditions.

Braking, Suspension and Handling

Driving a LPT3118 really gets easy with dual circuit full air S-Cam brakes with auto slack adjuster.
