From 1994 to 1996 LHB delivered a total of 600 of these modern cars in the first production run. The second run starting in 1996 consisted of 400 cars that were delivered from the builder in the "traffic red" paint scheme. The load surface has a volume of 55 cubic meters or approximately 72 cubic yards and the maximum load is 68 metric tons. The maximum speed for the cars is 120 km/h or 75 mph.
