High levels of durability, reliability, and driving performance
There is a reason why a large number of existing customers of the HINO 500 Series have good things to say about the Series’ durability, reliability, and driving performance. It is that the HINO 500 Series is designed with the aim of meeting the benchmark that requires its best potential to be delivered under harsh operating conditions. The truck’s development was based on studies of various operating conditions around the world. Additionally, we have gathered trucks that have been on the road under various conditions for 1-1.5 million kilometers and studied them. We then derived vehicular and performance specs based on these data, and conducted various tests throughout the development process. This was how this series was developed. Because of this background, we believe every single part delivers high durability, and the HINO 500 Series of trucks delivers powerful driving performance while achieving low emissions and good fuel efficiency. We hope that this truck, which you may be encountering soon, will meet your expectations, too.
Good transport quality is another defining feature of HINO trucks
The HINO 500 Series has been developed with attention to “transport quality” with the aim of developing a truck capable of delivering products such as perishable food and precision equipment in the best possible condition. The air suspension helps absorb vibrations from road bumps that can be a major cause of cargo collapse and damage. With flexibility and good rigidity, the taper-leaf suspension helps deliver both vibration absorption and durability. And then there is the multiple-leaf suspension that is designed to deliver high durability. Using different variations of these suspensions, the HINO 500 Series comes in a variety of model variations that take into account different operating environments and conditions and what the truck will be transporting. In addition, some models come with a height control system for adjusting the height of the rear body, which helps reduce cargo damage during cargo loading and unloading. It is only because we place importance on the success of our customers’ businesses that we offer these “transport quality” features found in the HINO 500 Series.
Flexible body-building capability meets various needs
Customers in many countries around the world continue to use the HINO 500 Series for its performance, powerful driving performance, good environmental friendliness, and fuel efficiency. But not only that; another reason that this series of trucks is popular in various countries is, we believe, that they are easy to body-build and easy to do so locally. They can be suited to the user’s needs thanks to their good body-building capability. In order to maintain a sufficient body-building area, the HINO 500 Series adopts chassis layout where the air tank and brake peripherals are located behind the cab. Also, nylon air tubes and aluminum air tanks are used in order to give the truck ample loading capacity. What will you carry? What kind of body do you plan to build to carry it in? The HINO 500 Series is designed to have the flexibility to meet these needs and evolve into a truck that is suitable for your business.
