Scania India is showcasing its P 410 premium range mining tippers – P 410 (8×4) coal body and P 410 (8×4) with an SSAB built rock body – at the on-going International Construction Equipment and Technology Trade Fair – EXCON 2015 in Bengaluru.

These P 410 off-road trucks are designed to meet the toughest demands of the mining and construction sector with rugged built and technology.
Strong modular chassis and durable cabs approved in Swedish impacts tests are the merits of the Scania P 410 range.

The engine is BS 3 (equivalent to Euro 3) compliant. The fuel tank capacity is 200 litres.
