TATA LPK 1615/36 8.5CM TIPPER comes with a TATA Cummins 6 BT, 142 hp turbo charged direct diesel engine. It provides much power and better traction in all terrain road conditions. The LPK 1615 tipper has a high fuel efficiency with a low maintenance cost.
TATA is the number one commercial vehicle brand in Sri Lanka. Part of this success has been due to the sales and after-sales facilities available island wide, DIMO’s 24-hour roadside assistance for TATA vehicles and superior product performance. TATA vehicles provide convenience, ease of mind and better profitability due to low operational cost and down time.
