Key Benefits of Vector Neutral Haul Trucks

No differentiation in driver control and operation of the vehicle with respect to the direction of travel.
It is insensitive to direction hence its name “Vector Neutral”.
Because there is no operational difference in performance as direction changes, there is no need to turn the vehicle around when changing direction.

This changes the haulage cycle for the truck.

The Result:

An undisputable advantage over the conventional haulage truck.

Vector Neutral Haul Truck Advantages

Less steering actuations
Less brake actuations
Less wear on the drive train
Less scrub and wear on tires
No turn-around areas to maintain
Ease of adapting remote and automatic control of the vehicle
