The company produces a range of light, medium and heavy duty trucks equipped to handle the requirements of the toughest mining and construction operations.


Performance in tough conditions

Muddy tracks, rough ground and steep slopes present no obstacle for IVECO’s off-road range, which offer the best combinations of payload and off-road performance in harsh conditions. The perfect partner for the mining, drilling, construction and forestry industries, IVECO vehicles make light work of the toughest environments.


IVECO will be releasing the Astra HD9 at AIMEX 2013. The HD9 is strong and versatile, making it suitable for a range of specialised operations in the oil and mineral sector, quarrying and construction. This truck combines more than fifty year’s experience building highly specialised, heavy-duty vehicles with the latest requirements for operator safety and comfort.


With expansive windows and rear-view mirrors, the cabin of the HD9 has been ergonomically designed to incorporate a variety of innovations, which, when combined with the renowned durability of the Astra chassis and drivetrain, make the new HD9 the ideal choice for customers who require maximum reliability under all conditions.


The Daily 4 x 4 is a purpose built off-road, light commercial truck based on the IVECO Daily award-winning road vehicle design. Suitable as an off-road support, emergency service or recreational vehicle, the Daily 4 x 4 is built on a solid steel truck chassis, complete with three differential locks for its permanent all wheel drive.


The Eurocargo 4 x 4 stands out for its qualities of versatility, durability and manoeuvrability. Ideally suited for a range of applications, the Eurocargo 4 x 4 can be used as the chassis for off-road maintenance or support vehicles, crane trucks or elevated work platforms. The truck also incorporates special structural protection systems, including a higher chassis, steel bumper and retractable access steps.


The IVECO Trakker is a rugged truck with a GVM of 33 tonnes, purpose built for the toughest off-road jobs. With differential locks and hub reduction on all axles, the Trakker can be fitted with a tipper body and is designed to operate in the mining, construction and logging environments.
