Tata Motors launches 47.5-tonne tipper truck, the Signa 4825.TK
Tata Motors has launched the Signa 4825.TK – India’s first 47.5-tonne multi-axle tipper truck for surface transport of coal and construction aggregates. The Signa 4825.TK’s gross vehicle weight allows more load per trip with its 29 cubic metre box
The Signa 4825.TK is powered by Cummins ISBe 6.7-litre BS6 engine with high power rating of 250hp and torque rating of 950Nm from 1000-1700rpm to ensure faster turnaround time. The engine is mated to a heavy duty G1150 9-speed gearbox, with 430mm dia organic clutch. The gear ratios are designed specifically for surface transportation, with reduced fuel consumption.
The tipper truck is equipped with 3 distinct drive modes – Light, Medium and Heavy – to ensure optimum power and torque selection based on the load and terrain, and achieve high fuel efficiency. It comes as a factory-built, ready-to-use vehicle with the 29 cubic metre tipper body and hydraulics. The Signa 4825.TK is available in two configurations: 10x4 and 10x2.
Other features include a spacious sleeper cabin, tilt & telescopic steering system, 3-way mechanicallyadjustable comfortable driving seat, easy-shift gears, hill start assist (HSA), engine brake and iCGT brake for greater vehicle control. In particular, safety features include the crash-tested cabin, high seating position, bigger daylight opening, rear view mirror, blind spot mirror, solid steel 3-piece bumper, and advanced electronic system with sensors to detect and prevent a possible topple while tipping. The truck also comes with Fleet Edge, Tata Motors’ fleet management solution, as a standard feature.
