Hi Ashley, since you seem to be 'in the know', with reference to your pic of the 'bulker' above, what is the significance of the rather odd design of the container (on the trailer) ? Is it meant for easy extraction (of what is contained within) or something ? Thanks...

The truck next to AL (Nandan Roadlines?) has a really long overhang. Does it come from the factory or it was added by the Truck body-maker. If it is not part of the original chassis wonder it would be able to handle the stress. I know it is meant to carry a car which might weigh much still such a large overhang is trouble for stability and manoeuvrability of the vehicle.

regarding the odd shape of the AL bulker, is it to lower the CG of the load and add stability during cornering?

This is to carry loose fly ash.The bulker is designed in such a way that it facilitates easy discharge while unloading.

That is exactly the kind of giant overhangs I was talking about earlier. I've seen DGFC, Varuna and Aggarwal trucks sporting those giant overhangs. It's acceptable when the truck's got twin rear axles but with a single rear axle, it looks to be quite dangerous.

Most bulkers we see running in the city carry bulk cement for the ready mix plants. The profile of the tank is such that every single grain of cement can be pushed out using compressed air (loading & unloading).Thus having any other profile for the tank will not empty the tanks contents fully.

One way it carries the fly ash from thermal power plants to cement factory and the other way it takes loose cement from cement factory to ready mix concrete plant

The normal thumb rule is the FOH or ROH should not be greater than 60% of your wheel base. Here the vehicle seen is a 12m chassis whose base will be 6.2m. with this we get around 3.6m of ROH. In this case the chassy length is incresed by body builder with an extra flitch and cross member. Additional springs are also added in the rear axle to counter the weigth. Of course this will affect the vehicle performancec but still its done for the sake of running business.

Defenitely no its only a functional charecter for ease in discharge of the material - fly ash/loose cement

Yesterday I saw a Hino Motors tipper in Bangalore. The cabin has a AC. The truck just looks like the MAN truck, but a bit smaller.

There was a sticker of Cavery Hino - Dealership of Bangalore.

They are sourced from the same plant. There will be some minor differances which may not be that audible.

This is not a factory fitted cab but its from a ALL approved body builder. In this case I believe its from ACCL.
The doors, body side outers and even the rear panels are lifted from Cargo cabs. This is cleverly merged with the existing FES.

Default Prima 3138 - 8X4 Tipper

A newly launched Prima range of tippers - 3138.
Application: Deep mining operations.
Engine : 380 HP,BS3 complaint .
wheels : 12-24".
RR axle : Heavy duty boggie suspension.

Surprisingly they were not driven and been carried in a trailor(seems to be a common sight now a days).
I believe if it was driven it would have escaped from that minor accident.
