8x8 Trakker Hi-Land Vehicles


The first Iveco Trakker Hi-Land 8x8 was handed over from Iveco Defence Vehicles Benelux to the fire brigades of the Dutch army’s infantry (ISK) and artillery (ASK) firing ranges. The hand-over ceremony was held at the NIDV Symposium in Rotterdam and was attended by military representatives and industrial partners.

Intended to replace aging equipment, this contract was awarded in 2012 and comprises the supply of two Iveco Trakker Hi-Land 410T45W in 8x8 axle-configuration. The contract also includes superstructure and vehicle engineering services, project management and maintenance contracting supported by Iveco DV Benelux’s commercial premises.

Each of the two Trakker Hi-Lands is equipped with a loading crane incorporating a winch, a 17 ton capacity container handling system and a newly designed 6m long open multipurpose container.

All vehicles are fully EEV emission compliant, featuring economical and environmentally friendly FPT Industrial Cursor engines coupled with automated EuroTronic transmissions. The innovative use of this technology enables the fleet to be one of the most environmentally friendly in Europe.

At the ceremony, the vehicles were exhibited in a static display. They had already undergone demanding dynamic tests performed by the users, demonstrating their outstanding performance over demanding terrain.
