The Tata LPT 1010/34 BSIII falls under the category of ‘heavy-duty trucks’ and is one of the best products ever manufactured by Tata. The vehicle draws power from a 3783 cc four-cylinder Common Rail Direct Injection BS–III engine which is capable of putting out a maximum power of 125 HP at 2400 RPM and a peak torque of 400 Nm at 1300 to 1600 RPM.
The six-speed manual gearbox coupled to a 310 mm single-plate dry type clutch takes care of all the transmission duties and is quite capable of taking it to a top-speed of 80-kilometers per hour without putting much strain on the engine. The 160-liter fuel tank is yet another excellent feature of this truck since one can easily cruise on both the highways and city traffic without worrying about the long queue at the fuel stations. Offering a gradeability of 28 percent and a GVW of 12990 Kgs, the truck is undoubtedly one of the best choices for the transportation of heavyweight cargo, construction materials, FMCG etc.
TATA LPT 1010/34 BSIII can be a great product even if one puts safety and comforts as their main criteria. Equipped with a tiltable and power assisted steering, adjustable driver seat, arm-rest, parking brakes, power steering, tubeless tyres, and seat belts – the tuck definitely is a segment leader. The braking duties on this high-performance machine are being effortlessly handled by the dual circuit full air ‘S’-cam brakes, while the suspension duties are well-managed by the semi-elliptical leaf springs on both the front and rear wheels. Along with this, the heavy-duty forged "I" beam reverse elliot type axle and the single-reduction hypoid gears and fully floating axle shafts surpasses all the expectations and produces excellent turning effects at all rev bands.
