Chinese light truck manufacturers have designed them accordingly when producing relevant products so that they can cope with complex usage environments.

High load capacity

In order to match the main function of light trucks: load capacity, Chinese light trucks have been designed accordingly. For example

  • Larger load space
  • More solid materials
  • Using the brakes and braking methods used by heavy trucks

A series of designs are designed to better realize its commercial value.

More economic value

For many self-employed people, light trucks are sufficient to meet their needs compared to heavy trucks; at the same time, light trucks are cheaper, even the high-end light trucks are very cheap compared to heavy trucks and the subsequent costs. It is often easier for a person to obtain an affordable light truck.

    • Torque size
    • Displacement
    • Power
  • Transmission

  • Load-bearing

    The most important attribute of a truck is its cargo capacity. A light truck with bad load capacity loses its basic meaning.

  • Truck beam

    In addition, the rear axle tonnage determines the pulling weight, be careful to choose.

    Driving brake is related to driving safety, try to choose wider automatic adjustment shoes.

  • Tires

    Whether it is freight efficiency or safety, tires are very important. Low rolling resistance tread pattern tires, with puncture resistance, super wear resistance, low fuel consumption three advantages, outstanding load-bearing capacity, failure rate and service life are excellent.

  • Cargo compartment

    The shape of the cargo compartment depends on the nature of the goods you pull, the most common is the above three forms. General LTL users because the goods are not fixed to choose the warehouse, the other according to their own needs to choose a flatbed truck is also known as a cargo car or van.
