Premier Motors presents Ford truck equipped with RosRoca refuse compactor at EcoWaste 2017
Premier Motors, Ford Trucks dealer in Abu Dhabi and an Al Tayer Group company, is presenting a 6x4 3543 rigid chassis truck with a 25m3 RosRoca refuse compactor in its first appearance at EcoWaste 2017, an exhibition that is held as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.
Powered by the new Ford Ecotorq engine family, the truck is part of Ford’s 2017 range, which comes with more pulling power and more torque, for better uphill traction, than the previous range.
The 6x4 series now delivers a 430 PS and 2,150 Nm of torque, which are increases of 22.8% and 53.6% respectively compared to the previous generation’s 350 PS and 1,400 Nm of torque.
Helal Hanei Omar, VP of Premier Motors, said: “We offer Ford Trucks’ customers a very competitive total cost of ownership with a comprehensive three-year/unlimited-kilometre standard warranty – a pioneering move when we introduced the brand in the UAE in 2014.”
The 2017 Ford series also features an upgraded braking system, with a 400 KW engine brake and optional 600 KW retarder option for a total potential braking capacity of 1,000 KW.
An overhauled front-axle systems also provides a 22% improvement in turning radius over the previous generation – improving the manoeuvrability for drivers on constricted sites.
The series, including the 1843T tractor (4x2), 1833 (4x2), 3543P/M/D (6x4) and 4143M/D (8x4) mixers can be equipped with manual or automatic transmission and on- or off-road cabins.
