Key Takeaways from the Product line up – 

  • While every other manufacturer is moving for higher powerhouse motors for high end tippers, AL is missing in action on that front. Beyond 250HP its still speculation that AL is working on 300HP Engine.
  • 300HP Engine is a must if AL wants to make a dent in Mining Segment with 28T & 35T Tippers.
  • 250HP – 4 Cylinder Engine might be a good alternative when it comes to fuel efficiency. But Ashok Leyland will have a hurricane task to convince end users on reliability on the engine.
  • With practically one engine in the entire Tipper portfolio things should be easy when it comes to maintenance & Total Cost of Ownership.
