56 More Hinos Sign Up to Army Life

Hino Australia has completed the delivery of a batch of 56 new Hino 4x4 medium-duty standard cab and crew cab trucks to the Australian Defence Force (ADF). Hino's all-terrain 500 Series GT 4x4 has been chosen by Defence to fill a number of critical logistical roles around Australia. The ADF has taken delivery of more than 520 Hino trucks since 1995, with the 500th vehicle presented to the ADF in late June. The 4x4 GT features a heavy-duty, low range four wheel drive transfer case and can be driven in two wheel drive mode on established roads to maximize economy. The purpose-built trucks are equipped with a heavy-duty steel tray and tarp, tailgate loader, heavy-duty leaf spring suspension, all-terrain protection equipment including a Hino alloy bullbar and are fitted with 11R 22.5 wheel and tyre combinations which will be the standard specification on all Hino 4x4 GT 500 Series models from July 2012.
