HINO has released a new range of accessories that includes FUP (Front Under-run Protection) compliant bull bars, a nudge bar, updated premium seat covers and a Hino fridge/warmer unit.
The new bull bars are designed to work in unison with Hino's FUP system, which prevents the truck from "running over" another vehicle in the event of a collision.
FUP is fitted as standard to Hino's wide cabin 300, 500 and 700 Series trucks.
Hino Australia Parts and Accessories assistant manager Kirk Harrison said designers and engineers paid special attention to the bull bar's strength, rigidity and aerodynamic properties.
"All high-quality bull bars offer maximum accident protection," Mr Harrison said.
"Additionally, the bull bar's aerodynamic design allows maximum airflow to the truck's radiator inlet for effective cooling.
"All Hino bullbars are also air-bag compatible and have a one-piece steel mount for additional rigidity in the event of a frontal impact.
"The new nudge bar for the 300 Series was developed as a low-cost alternative to bull bars for smaller operators.
"Although lighter in weight than a full-sized bull bar, it provides excellent protection and air bag compatibility.
"It is ideal for metro based vehicles."
Mr Harrison also said the new seat covers for the 300, 500 and 700 Series trucks were available in the choice of carbon fabric, canvas and sheepskin and suit single and crew cab models."
"The seat covers come in either black or carbon grey colour scheme and include a convenient rear storage pocket for maps, logbooks and other items," he said.
"They also feature reinforced stitching, UV stabilised flame retardant material, and a hard-wearing stain-resistant coating. Hino's new sheepskin seat covers, also in charcoal, are made with high-grade wool to provide extra comfort.
"Hino's fridge/warmer units further add to cabin convenience for 500 and 700 Series owners in allowing occupants to store hot and cold food items.
"The units are custom designed to fit in place of the centre assistant's seat. They are supplied with brackets and electrical harnesses, so no modifications to the cabin are required for installation.
"The units have an 11-litre capacity and feature an internal divider, which allows the occupant to vary the size of the cold and warm section."
All Hino genuine parts and accessories carry a three-year unlimited kilometre warranty when fitted by an authorised Hino dealer.
