Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV), a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler Truck AG, has strengthened its product offering for the Construction and Mining sector with the BharatBenz 3532CM mining tipper, 2832CM mining tipper and 5532 Tip Trailer. The entire truck model range is on display at Bauma CONEXPO India 2023 in Greater Noida. The new model range comes with a more powerful 320 HP BSVI diesel powertrain, providing high wheel-end torque required to negotiate tough, gradient mining roads. The vehicles come with industry-leading body capacities, benefiting customers in the mining sector. Also on display at the exhibition was the new BharatBenz 48T rigid tipper and 28T RMC.

These trucks are used in extensive applications including surface construction, mining, irrigation/tunneling and intra-city distribution. BharatBenz’s new generation products are transforming the RMC (ready mix cement) application with engine-driven PTO solutions suiting every concreting requirement.
