Scania builds on its history of providing robust urban workhorses suited to the waste industry with the arrival of its next generation P-series.
Available as a prime mover or rigid, in a variety of power train and drive train combinations, the Scania P-series offers high levels of safety, driver comfort and excellent visibility, critical for safe and fuss-free manoeuvring in built-up areas.
The new Scania P-series comes with a range of frugal Euro-6 low emission engines with up to 450 horsepower available, making it suitable for a wide range of tough jobs. The P-series has been a successful front lift or rear-loading waste trucks, as well as being fitted with various hooklift and skip bin systems over the years and has a well-established following within the waste industry.
The high output six-cylinder engine easily pulls bulk compacted waste bins with high gross combination mass.
In the 2019 NTG P-series, the windscreen is larger, and the A-pillars and door mirror mounts are repositioned, providing far greater visibility at intersections.
As part of the launch of a more spacious, frugal, safer and efficient overall package, Scania is offering a five-year or 500,000-kilometre service inclusive package that provides fully predictable maintenance costs for operators.
And as supplies of the NTG P-series arrive in Australia, a small number of previous generation P-series 8×4 hooklifts remain available.
