The Astra HD9 44.38 are equipped with a powerful and efficient FPT Cursor 13 engine rated at 380 hp, compliant with Euro3 emissions standards and coupled with a 16-gear manual gearbox to match the customer’s requirement for fuel efficiency in this specific mission. On top of the high-performance driveline, the 4x4 axle configuration and the 4,600 mm wheelbase allow for excellent mobility when operating in tough conditions.
The HD9 rigid version is the ideal vehicle for transporting materials, goods and people in the most demanding situations for climate, terrain and loading capabilities. Available in 2, 3 and 4-axle versions, it can reach a GVW up to 65 tons depending on the configuration. The HD9 rigid version is designed to be easily set up in numerous different configurations, thanks to a simple and reliable mechanical-electronic structure. Thanks to the versatile chassis frame, made of two wide and parallel high-tensile steel side members, HD9 vehicles suit all types of set-ups: from a tipping body for transporting aggregates from quarries or mines, to construction equipment such as concrete mixers, concrete pumps or mixer pumps, platforms and cranes, as well as special configurations such as workshop or firefighting vehicles.
