Hino Launches New 2.7 Tonne Payload Auto Dump Truck

Hino has launched Australia’s first fully automatic light duty dump truck.

The new Hino 300 Series 614 Automatic Dump is suitable for landscapers, pool builders, rental companies, builders, plumbers and tradespersons.

It is offered with the choice of two GVM ratings – 4495kg (approximately 1.7 tonnes payload) or 5500kg (approximately 2.7 tonnes payload).

Drivers with a current car or automatic car licence can drive vehicles plated as 4495kg.

The Built to Go Hino 614 Automatic Dump has a narrow cab, a 100kW engine and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Safety equipment includes a driver’s SRS airbag and ABS brakes with electronic brake force distribution (EBD) as standard equipment.

In addition, the 614 Auto Dump has air conditioning.

The Hino 614 Auto Dump’s ADR 80/02-compliant 4.0-litre turbocharged and intercooled direct-injection engine delivers 100kW of power at 2700rpm and 358Nm of torque at 1800rpm. (Power and torque ratings are measured in ISO net.)

The ‘intelligent’ automatic transmission has state-of-the-art features, including fuel-saving torque converter lock-up in five ratios – from second to sixth gear.

The learning characteristics of the intelligent six-speed automatic transmission can comfortably adapt to the driving style of the driver.

Hino’s automatic transmission also features 'neutral control' that electronically switches the transmission to neutral when the truck is stationary and the brakes are applied, reducing engine and drivetrain load as well as offering savings in fuel consumption.
