This report concerns the Italian market for off-highway dump trucks, and is an update of the study which was last published in the European Service in January 2009. It assesses the current trends in the market, examines the operations of the domestic manufacturers and main suppliers, and forecasts the likely trends of the market over the next five years.
The report considers both the articulated dump truck, which is available with either two or three axles and which ranges in payload capacity from 13 tonnes to 45 tonnes; and the rigid dump truck, usually comprising two axles, which carries a payload from 28 to over 300 tonnes. Because of their axle weight distribution and dimensions, rigid and articulated dump trucks are not permitted on the roads, which many operators consider to be an overwhelming disadvantage. They therefore choose to use instead robust on-off highway trucks, which are not considered in this report, but which are substantially cheaper than the genuine off-highway trucks and are consequently very popular.
