You might be delivering beverages in Peterborough or replacing power lines around Saskatoon. In either case, the Hino 338 is the go-to truck for operations that require strength, reliability and superb visibility. The picture of flexibility, a “clean chassis” is standard meaning that there is nothing mounted to the outside of the frame rails behind the cab. Combine that with all the driver-comfort features you have come to expect in a Hino, you can easily see why this is Hino’s best-in-class medium duty vehicle.
