Top Seven Truck Manufacturers Will Attend Tip-ex 2018


The seven major truck manufacturers are ready to exhibit at Tip-ex and Tank-ex 2018 at the Harrogate Convention Center from May 31 to June 2.

DAF will be outside and right in front of the main entrance to the exhibition halls and showcase its latest range of CF tipper and mixer frames, which offer up to 250kg of additional payload. Its new ultra-compact exhaust system also creates space on the chassis, making the CF ideal for applications requiring packaging of ancillary equipment for dump, tanker and construction roles such as hook loader, tipper and mixer applications.

A dedicated 18-ton LF build is also featured with a raised front bumper with 320mm ground clearance and an approach angle of nearly 25 degrees. DAF claims to have the tightest turning radius in this weight class.

Iveco this year presents its ranges of light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, carrying a message of adequacy in the building, construction and waste sectors. On display is the manufacturer’s new Stralis X-Way, which offers what it claims are top-notch low curb weights that improve payload. The X-Way combines the strength of a Trakker chassis with the fuel efficiency, comfort and handling of the Stralis range.

The Eurocargo is also on display and, highlighting its ecological credentials, a Daily Hi-Matic Natural Power, which is part of the Daily Blue Power range voted International Van of the Year 2018. There is also a Stralis NP – l ‘gasoline artic which has a range of up to 1,600 km.

Mercedes-Benz brought its two brands. Fuso is represented by a Canter 7C15 with a tipper on stand A10, while next to the Canter are two other Mercedes-Benz trucks on the stand. One is an Arocs 8×4 dump body, while the other is its city truck – the Econic.

Meanwhile, MAN’s offers can be found on the Development plan and the MAN dealer presents much more than the main manufacturer: it offers moving floor semi-trailers from Kraker Trailers and the first UK-spec tipper from the Dutch manufacturer D-Tec Trailers.
