Custom-built Hino 6×2 delivered in Victoria

Victorian company Eastern Tree Service (ETS) has recently taken delivery of a customised 6×2 Hino tilt-tray.

The 500 Series GH 1728 XXL wheelbase model is based on the 4×2 version and was built to transport heavy equipment and recovering vehicles.

The new tilt tray will join ETS’ national fleet of around 280 trucks with more than half of the trucks purchased from Hino.

“We currently run about 190 Hinos out of our depots around Australia,” said Bill Simmons, ETS National Fleet and Maintenance Manager.

The majority are based on the Hino 500 Series medium-duty range, featuring fuel-efficient Euro 5-compliant engines and safety features like ABS anti-skid brakes, front under-run protection and driver's SRS airbag as standard.
