Drivers experience stable handling thanks to the high rigidity of the chassis and the air-sprung Stabilink rear suspension. The front wheel suspension offers the perfect balance between damping, lateral stability and stiffness. An 8-tonne front axle with two-leaf parabolic suspension is delivered as standard. Heavier applications can use the 9-tonne front axle with three-leaf parabolic suspension for the greatest comfort. A 7.5-tonne front axle with a single leaf spring is new — ideally suited for applications where every kilo counts.
Clever chassis layout
The aim when developing the chassis was to create as much space as possible. For maximum flexibility, the layout of the chassis can be arranged in many different ways. The systems for exhaust gas after-treatment can be placed to the left or right on the chassis, or can even be separated. Large or small fuel tanks, the exhaust pipe to the left, right or vertically — many variants are possible. The AdBlue tank in the tractor versions is practically located underneath the cabin and the batteries are at the rear of the chassis. The result is plenty of space for hydraulic tanks or fuel tanks with total volumes of no less than 1,500 litres.
Easy to build on
Easy to build on
All rigid chassis have a carefully chosen hole pattern for maximum ease of body installation. Construction vehicles can be fitted with console brackets at the factory to make it easier to add a tipper, for example. The optional Body Builder Module (BBM) is a standardised connection between the vehicle and the superstructure, which is completely separate from the other vehicle functions. The BBM provides safe access to a wide range of vehicle signals and customer-specific control functions. The resulting benefits are the time saved during installation and trouble-free operation of the truck itself.
