Driver-fatigue is a concern with road hauliers but, as has come to be expected with all JMC vehicles, the interior cab is spacious while the cloth-covered seats are padded and built for comfort. An important bonus for employers is that the Carrying Plus can be driven with a code 10 motor vehicle licence – heavy-duty licences are not required.
"Inside the spacious interior, the dashboard instruments are uncomplicated and easy to read, there are loads of additional storage areas apart from the cubbyhole, and fire extinguishers are standard across all six models in the Carrying Plus range. Apart from dual cup holders, there is even a large grab handle for easy access into the cab interior".
A curved, wide windscreen, gives excellent visibility. Dramatically slanted window lines and large exterior mirrors maximise all-round visibility.
Other features include:
The new Carrying Plus is longer and larger than its predecessor, the Carrying, and this 4-ton truck is available in a vanbody, drop-side and tipper configurations. They all have a generous 83-litre fuel tank for maximum operating range. The Carrying Plus is fitted with a heavy-duty braking system that includes ABS and an exhaust brake. This workhorse has 16-inch wheels fitted with heavy duty tyres and can carry a 4,020kg complemented by the dual-tyre rear axle.
JMC Motor Corporation has partnered with global suppliers. This guarantees the availability of spare parts at an affordable price. The six models in the Carrying Plus range start at R296,990, upwards to R352,880. The vehicles have a 3-year/90 000 km service plan and a 5-year/150 000 km warranty.
