The Iveco ACCO may not be at the cutting-edge of truck development, but when it comes to transporting wet cement it pretty much can’t be beaten!
That’s the opinion of one of the nation’s leading concrete and construction products companies, ACM.

The business has just added another ten 8×4 Iveco ACCOs to its fleet, and have just placed an order for another ten!
All the ACCOs are fitted with 340hp engines and six-speed auto transmissions, and will be put to work helping meet the demand for cement in Melbourne’s booming western suburbs.
Equipped with 7.4 cubic metre bowls, ACM General Manager, Digby Crawford, says the Iveco product is ideal for the job.
“The great thing about the ACCOs is that they are fit for purpose – the trucks and all of the driveline componentry is proven, reliable and long lasting,”
“Maintenance on the trucks and availability of parts is another benefit, you can find replacement parts everywhere, which minimises the likelihood of any downtime.
“Another attractive aspect of the ACCOs was the availability of Electronic Stability Control which is important in this application where the load has a higher centre of gravity.”
And before making the choice Digby did his homework.
“We looked closely at five different brand trucks all up, but in the end the ACCO had the best all-round package,”
“The combination of low tare weight, industry standard components, cab over design which allowed us to better manoeuvre in confined spaces and superior serviceability won over.”
