Default Hino 7.5 tonner?

Any good?

HINO 300 SERIES 4009cc 76k km

One in local auction on Tuesday were running an iveco at the moment but it body height is high and with a 3m edge 3.6m centre arch bridge to get to our yard and farm height is critical the hino looks lower,


I've heard parts are expensive?

There is also 2 x man which we might have a go at as used to run a man before iveco and preferred it to the iveco.

MAN TGL 8.154 4X2 - 4580cc 197k km and 126k km

Hinos are very good under rated lorries from what I've heard, Local firm runs around 6, 6 leggers alongside Dafs and a couple Renaults. Sort of firm that would not have them if they where not worth having. Never seen a little one in the UK before but see them in Auz and third world country's performing.

Parts will most likely be similar priced to anything else, particularly if using the likes of All Spares etc.

Just having a look they come with dual airbags and stability control and a decent Bluetooth radio etc which is rare in 7.5 tippers.

They are basically a big Toyota dyna aren't they? Which if that's anything to go by should be a reliable truck. I personally wouldn't have any issues buying one, I know there's a lot of lads at home running bigger hinos since the 80s and swear by them.
