Scania to deliver 26 tippers to Earthline

Earthline Scania tipper

Earthline has announced the order of 26 tippers from Scania, due to be delivered this year.

With over 70 tippers currently on the fleet, Earthline has ordered a selection of 410-horsepower Scania XT P- and G-series 8x4 trucks.

Earthline will benefit from a two-year repair and maintenance plan that comes as standard on Scania construction trucks and have opted to take a third year driveline warranty.

Earthline’s general manager Malachi Chambers said: “We really liked that the XT range was an option available on our latest order as it meant that the vehicles already came with a lot of the robust features we’d usually add once we received them, this ultimately meant that we got them working sooner.

“Even simple features like the headlamp protection helps prevent breakages, which in turn means the vehicle doesn’t have to stop or be taken off the road for repair.”

It also chose to add a Brigade six-way recordable camera system with Sidescan as well as Scania City Safe windows in all their new cabs, all for added safety of vulnerable road users, increased visibility and convenience. 

Chambers said: “The majority of our fleet is Scania and we’ve been running Scania product for around 18 years.

"We’re great fans of the products and enjoy the aftersales support we receive, so for us it was an easy decision when looking at upgrading our current range.

“Uptime is important to any business – ours is no exception – so working with a company who we feel also cares about our wheels turning is great. The effort that the service team at Scania Swindon make is amazing.

“Their commitment to keeping our fleet on the road is phenomenal and their service manager, Martyn Perry, always goes that extra mile to consistently impress us.
