The highlight of AVTR 4825 Tippers is the H-series 4-valve 6-cylinder engine. The motor also benefits from Ashok Leyland’s i-Gen6 technology, which enhances performance and durability. The engine makes 250 HP of peak power at 2,400 rpm and 900 Nm of torque between 1,200 rpm and 1,900 rpm. The 4-valve setup and wide RPM range also offer better pick-up and higher fuel efficiency. It also allows for lesser gearshifts which in turn improves drivability.
The H6 4V engine uses a new ZF 9-speed gearbox with a 395mm clutch plate. The gearbox offers higher reliability and durability. Ashok Leyland claims it has the lowest cost of service as it offers a 3000 hours oil change interval. At the same time, the bigger clutch offers increased clutch plate life and higher durability. It also gets hydraulic actuation with a clutch booster, which reduces fatigue during long hours of operation.
