Spotted 3 of these tipper / dumper trucks parked at night. They were actually multi-axle tractors, with the carrier as a trailer - which had three axles. On the rear, it was written "JCBL-Fuwa".

Would be nice if someone could help me with the meanings of 6x4, 6x2, etc.

In this case, if i take the total no of wheels, it's 2 + 4 + 6, and no. of tyres is 2 + 8 + 12, no of axles is 1+2+3

They were impressive. The cabins were nothing short of beautiful.

[Excuse the poor quality of the photos]

These are a part of newly launched products under "U" Truck platform.
These cabs are called NewGen cabs which were first seen in 4921.

6x4 - Three axles in with two being live.Eg - AL 4921,2516,2518 Tippers
6x2 - Three axles with one being live. Eg - AL 2214, TML 2515.
8x2 - Four axles with one being live.Eg - AL 3121, 3116, TML 3118

Are those day cabins or sleeper cabin.?
If its a day cabin then it could be the 2521 or 2523.
If its sleeper possible that it could be 4923.

Where did you spot them?

Thanks for the insight.

They were all 6x4 tractors, because both rear axles are active. Not sure about the cabins, I think they were sleepers.

All of them were parked along New Beach Road, near Thiruvanmiyur RTO. I spotted them at around midnight.

Default Truck body across India

I was just wondering about the similarity and differance between the truck cabin been build by various body builders across India.


If you could take one from Tamilnadu / Karnataka / Kerala they completely go for a different kind of wheel arch - almost the cowl is stripped down and then built again. They are mostly painted only in Brown with two spilt windscreen and few grill works in the front.They look more simple and neat.
The Heavy Trucks thread-tamilnadu.jpg

Here is the one from Andra Pradesh. They retain front grills and even sill outer. They have mostly 2 windscreen seperated by a opening in the middle.They are almo painted in brown but the finish and the aesthetics are very poor.
Name:  Andra Pradesh.jpg

Next will be from Rajasthan / Haryana / Delhi / Bihar. The windscreen is mostly two with a seperator in the middle and sometimes there are also smaller wind intakers in the bottom portion. Their windscreens are the smaller amoung the lot and they stick what ever is available on earth on to the windscreen .
They have additional fuel tanks (400+400) compared to other trucks.
They are always available with a huge warning triangle in the middle hindering the visibility further ( even though this has been eliminated recently by ARAI). And the colour will be mostly a red triangle which is actually to be used at rear and white should be at front.
The Heavy Trucks thread-rajasthan1.jpg

Now which cabs are more functional, which looks more good and which will be the most cost effective one to build.
Further how this era of body building has come and how come there exists a similaity in body style. Views plz

The brown colour is requried by National Permit rules. Non-national permit vehicles would have some other colour.

Moreover, vehicles carrying hazardous substances, (Tankers, LPG cylinder carrying vehicles) need to be white with a brown band in middle, with yellow front and rear ends.

This Golden brown colour for NP is been ruled out I believe.This is not seen in other state trucks except the one from south India. even the trucks in those phots are not in brown.
LPG bulkers are in deep orange to differentiate from others.

Saw a similar example on Friday , on the NH4. The 3015/16 seems to be the mainstay for car carriers.. But I have once seen a Tata 4018 hooked to a (rarely seen) three axle car-carrier trailer outside a Toyota dealership.

This may sound stupid ,but I wonder why car carriers are not dual tyred for the trailer ?
