REPORTING FOR HEAVY DUTY

The Astra 8x8 is IVECO’s largest and most heavy-duty off-road vehicle available in the range, delivering the power, performance and productivity IVECO is renowned for. It’s purpose-built to tackle the most demanding off-road applications. 

The Astra features huge ground clearance, a full-time 8x8 system with lockable diffs on all axles and a choice of two powerful horsepower options, making it a true off-road specialist.

Amongst many applications requiring a heavy-duty vehicle, the Astra is ideal for use in mining, exploration, drilling, forestry and water haulage.

ASTRA RANGE

A TRUE WORKHORSE

Boasting the traction of an all-wheel drive 8x8 driveline, IVECO parabolic front suspension, IVECO cantilever rear suspension and the well-regarded IVECO Cursor 13 engine available in 480 or 520hp outputs, the Astra delivers powerful performance that makes light work of the toughest conditions.

The Astra is equipped with differential locks and hub reduction on all axles, and with its 48 tonne GVM and 70 tonne GCM, is capable of handling the largest of loads.

ENGINE

POWER AND TORQUE

The Astra is powered by IVECO’s Cursor 13, 6 cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, with the engine available in two sets of tune. Both engines provide strong power and torque from low in the rev range, ensuring the trucks can handle the demands of the most difficult applications.

Meeting Euro 5/ADR 80-03 emission standards, the Cursor 13 engine is fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology which reduces the level of toxic gases emitted from the engine and provides a significant decrease in fuel consumption.

Cursor 13 engine features include:

  • Engine available in two sets of tune - 480 hp/2300 Nm or 520 hp/2400 Nm.
  • Engine fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to reduce emissions.
  • Paired with ZF Eurotronic II 16-speed automated transmission.

TRANSMISSION

OPTIONS FOR EVERY APPLICATION

IVECO pairs the Astra’s Cursor 13 engine with a ZF Eurotronic II automated transmission for maximum control. The ZF Eurotronic II is a 16 speed transmission with electronically controlled clutch engagement. While driving in automated mode, the Eurotronic transmission automatically selects the most ideal gearshift according to such inputs as load, road speed and road incline. It also offers the flexibility to manually select gears should the application and track conditions require. 

As an alternative, if your specific application requires a full automatic transmission, owners can select the optional Allison 4700 transmission.

FRAME & SUSPENSION

GENUINELY TOUGH AND CAPABLE

The IVECO Astra starts tough from the ground up, with a strong, high tensile steel C-Section chassis reinforced with cross members. With its flat chassis rails, the Astra is suitable for fitment of a wide range of bodies, with minimum need for modification.

The Astra features permanent all-wheel drive to all 8 axles and is fitted with parabolic front leaf springs and rear IVECO cantilever springs providing excellent load carrying ability, comfort and off-road performance. The suspension features a standard stabiliser bar on the 1st and 4th axles.
