Scania has launched a fully built-up skiploader based on its 18-tonne gross vehicle weight New Generation P-series chassis. Developed in conjunction with market leading skip loader equipment manufacturer, Hyva, the vehicle is available for order from any Scania UK dealer network sales outlet. 


"The New Generation P-series 4x2 rigid chassis is ruggedly-constructed, durable, reliable and safe," says Scania (Great Britain) Limited's Sales Director, Andrew Jamieson. "In addition to its highly fuel efficient on-road performance, the P-series provides a stable and sure-footed platform when working on-site.  As such, it provides an ideal base for skiploader operation. By combining with Hyva we have a vehicle that is not only tailor-made for its application, but also offers the convenience of a one-stop, cost-effective product which can be acquired and fully maintained with Scania as the sole source of supply." 


The Scania Skiploader is available in either day-cab or short day-cab format, with steel suspension front and rear.  Designed for economy and ease-of-operation, Scania 7- or 9-litre engines can be specified, with power steps of 220, 250, 280, 320 or 360 horsepower.  Transmission is by way of Scania's eight-speed GR875 range-change gearbox with fully automated, two-pedal Scania Opticruise gear selection system. To maximise flexibility in operation, up to three performance modes from a choice of Standard, Economy, Power or Off-road can be selected.  Scania's R660 rear axle with differential lock completes the driveline. 


The bodywork fitted is Hyva's NG2012XL skiploader equipment.  This features extendable telescopic arms and a rapid off-load function to allow rapid and simple multi-dropping of empty containers.  Independently-operated controls for the arms and jack legs ensure flexibility across a wide range of operating conditions.  The NG2012XL can lift 12-tonnes with its arms retracted, or 8-tonnes when extended.


While utilising a standardised range of componentry, the Scania Skiploader also offers a wide choice of option to ensure every need can be satisfied. In addition to being competitively priced, the vehicle is fully supported from new with a comprehensive two year repair and maintenance programme, which can be extended.
