"Hino asked if I’d like another go at the FS, offering to fly me to Bundaberg to pick it up and drive it down to Ballina. I liked the idea of trying out the truck again, in hopefully less harrowing conditions."

Performance Data Tracking in Real Time
Hino-Connect is an integrated telematics system that combines key performance data tracking in real time, remote diagnosis of vehicle faults and 24/7 alerts delivered to the truck’s owner and their Hino Connect specialist for priority repairs and service support.
The Cabin of the Larger Hino Prime Mover
Climbing up into the cabin of the larger Hino prime mover, the SS 2848, is a different proposition to the smaller rigid FY model. The 700 Series cabin with the 13 litre engine sits 120mm higher than the model fitted with the nine litre. They are both 700 Series models but they really do look and feel different.
Real-time Insights Into the Operation of Fleets
‘’More than just a mapping or tracking tool, Hino-Connect delivers 700 Series customers real-time insights into the operation of fleets,” says Gus Belanszky, General Manager, Service and Customer Support for Hino Australia.
The Heavy Hitter
The all new Hino 700 Series shows Hino is serious about its Heavy-duty aspirations as the truckmaker forges ahead with its latest market leading technology.
A Genuine Contender
Operational restrictions brought about by COVID have meant that it is almost six months since the mid-2021 release of the all-new Hino 700 Series before we have the opportunity to drive it.
Hino 700 Series FS 2848 truck and dog review
Hino left virtually no stone unturned when it updated its 700 Series in 2021, with the heavy end of the Japanese maker’s line-up now boasting more models, cutting-edge safety, new and improved Euro 6 drivetrains, and a new cab interior, among other updates.
CNC Cartage grows thanks to the versatility of its fleet of crane trucks and the expertise of its people.
Style and substance
Hino Australia recently introduced its new 700 Series heavy-duty models to the local market. After a comprehensive test drive of two different versions, Paul Matthei’s conclusion is that they both look the goods and deliver the goods – in more ways than one.
It’s Prime (Mover) time
This time around it was the 700 Series 2848 Prime Mover Hi Roof Cab version with reefer trailer attached and considerably more weight on board than the rigid.
Hino 700 Series rigid a class act
After an impressive static display mid-way through 2021, we expected plenty from a first drive of Hino’s new 700 Series trucks, and we certainly weren’t disappointed by an FR 6x2 rigid model put through its paces in everything from heavy metro traffic to fast freeways.
Truck and dog combo shines for Hino
Every now and then a new truck comes along with the ability to surprise and impress in equal measure, and we’ve found just such a truck in Hino’s revitalised range of 700 Series heavy-duty models. In fact, so surprising and so impressive was a truck and dog combination recently put through its paces that we’re now thinking Hino may actually have the best Japanese heavy-duty truck in the business.
Hino 700 Series FS 2848- A good all-rounder for tech-savvy owners
Big Rigs set about testing these claims by taking a 700 Series FS 2848 truck and dog trailer combination loaded with sandstone for a spin from Hino’s Sydney headquarters down to the Illawarra region south of Sydney via the arduous Mt. Ousley.
Truck Makers Need to Keep up With the Times
What we expect from a heavy duty truck is changing fast, and truck makers need to keep up with the times. Hino has come up with a model which is precisely tailored to this decade’s Australian heavy market preferences.

The new 700 Series has many updated features, the most notable of which is safety. Touted as the ‘safest Hino ever’ the new Hino offers a full complement of features to protect drivers and other road users.
Safer, greener and packed with Euro style
The recent release of the all-new Hino 700 Series range sees the brand treat the 700 Series model to broader levels of power, connectivity and business telematics, while offering upgraded driver comfort and features.
Where’s The Red One?
Everyone knows that Red-Goes-Faster! It’s just a simple fact of life that we all accept – just as we accept Father Christmas, The Tooth Fairy and The Easter Bunny.
Hino 700 Series 9L FR 2632 distribution 6x2 Review
The 2021 Hino 700 Series looks remarkably similar to its predecessor, but, in the case of the distribution-truck models, a new low-height cab sits on top of a revised, Euro 6 nine-litre engine.
Hino plays the long game with its 700
Hino’s long wheelbase addition to its long-serving 700-Series heavy-duty range certainly packs plenty of punch for a truck essentially designed for three-axle rigid work. It also packs enough extras to soften the view – at least for now – that time is starting to catch up with this stalwart of the Hino stable.
Test Drive: Hino 700 Series
The inclusion of European driveline manufacturer ZF’s up-to-the-minute TraXon 16-speed automated manual transmission with Intarder has boosted Hino’s stalwart 700 Series variants to a standard not previously seen in Japanese heavy-duty trucks.

Truck and Bus News recently had the chance to pilot Hino’s updated 700 series rigid down the Pacific on a 1000km road test testing out its new updated AMT and its overall comfort levels and performance and we have put together a video story on our exploits in the big Hino.
Its tough for all trucks but even tougher for trucks on a hire fleet , with a range of different drivers, heavy workload, a touch of occasional mistreatment and that ever present hot weather and choking red dust. For Karratha Machinery Hire running a fleet of trucks in the tough Pilbara means you have to pick trucks that will last in such tough conditions...
Hino's Top-End truck ticks a lot of right boxes
The biggest Hino, the 700 Series, offers a respectable 480hp and there’s a silky smooth new AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) on offer that combines to make this one impressive offering.
High-tech truck is torque of town
