The Hino 500 Series Wide Cab

The Hino 500 Series Wide Cab redefines what to expect from a hard-working truck. Its unrivalled build quality delivers next level chassis, suspension, and axles. The combination of the ever reliable and well proven Hino J08 8L engine and the 6 speed Allison automatic transmission, mean that maximum uptime and operational efficiency is available.

Being the first Japanese truck in the medium duty category to offer active safety as standard inclusions not optional extras, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Reverse Camera, ABS, Traction Control and more is available.

All this complemented by a level of driver comfort you never thought possible.

And because we’re driven to do more for you, you’ll also have Hino Advantage – our integrated support solutions that deliver a comprehensive customer care program.

Change the trucking game in your favour. To find out more, enquire today at Turnbull Hino!
