    Robust and reliable

    Each Scania is unique. From the moment it leaves our production facilities, its journey begins to serve your unique demands, challenges and operating environments. With excellent equipment-to-payload ratio and greatly improved technical availability, the Scania Heavy Tipper can be specially tailored uniquely for your business operation. It is also designed and tested to enable outstanding durability and reliability that keeps your operation going every day.

    Safety at every turn

    Operating in the harshest environments, your vehicles must deliver uncompromising safety at all times – to protect your people and keep your operations going for longer. At Scania, our vehicles are the result of generations of thorough research, design and testing, making them exceptionally safe. This is due to the wide array of innovative safety and support systems built in to each Scania vehicle.

    Built-in safety

    Safety demands a comprehensive approach across both the design and testing stages. Scania’s ergonomic cabin design, systems and driver aids facilitate quicker and more intuitive decision making. This can make all the difference in the splitsecond decisions you face every day. All Scania cabs are approved by the Swedish cab test – one of the world’s toughest impact test.
