International 9870

The International 9870

Coming from the iconic line of 9800 models, the 9870 is a striking re-designed truck made in New Zealand and modelled around NZTA regulations. Designed as the shortest set forward axle cab-over in the market, the 9870 provides the best HMPV tables to reach RUC bands in truck/trailer combinations. With custom chassis specs including a highly crafted cab interior, the 9870 breaks tradition to incorporate some of the latest technology which improves performance and safety.

International do not sacrifice precious payload, instead we use the right amount of high tensile alloy steel to do the job efficiently and safely for New Zealand conditions. The 9870 generates the highest payload increasing your bottom line. This, along with having the highest approval rating and absolute respect from drivers, the 9870 is a winning package for astute operators.
