Impressive and maybe overkill towing operation. What seemed interesting is that the booster had some sort of problem with the steering...
It's amazing how long it takes to design and develop a new cab for a truck.
Steering must be horrendous when loaded.
I would guess they have to de couple the trailers and slide the axles forward on the first trailer.
Nice Scania next gen T730
Impressive. They seem to average between 36-40 tons per axle. Isn't MB's most heavy duty rear end rated for 32 tons?
I suppose the guy driving the...
I agree. It's easy drive. With a 6x2 truck it's also a good combination when it's slippery.
From a financial and environmental perspective I...
Can you buy proper winter tires for trucks in NA?
The truck above clearly doesn't have proper winter tires.
I think the sales pitch for Sisu is that they offer different frames for different applications so you don't need subframes for big cranes etc and...
It's Biogas, which is mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen (anaerobically), primarily consisting...
I think the lift axle tandem will be popular in Finland as they like 8x4/4 where in Sweden most operators prefer 8x4*4.
The most common...
It's a rebadged Nissan Navara
That would be probably the most common truck configuration in Sweden.
4x2 tractors in slippery conditions is a disaster waiting to happen. Swedish version of DOT has made studies about these trucks in winter...
They are common in Sweden also but not 8x2*6 with two front axles. Usually they come in 6x2*4 or 8x4*4 and in some places 8x2/*6.
With 8x4 and the kingpin that far back lets hope for a Cummins QSK38 so the second front axle is justified.
Do you know why you can not get Mercedes or MAN 8x6 trucks with the second axle driven?
8x6 always seems to be frist axle driven.
I think they have ordered both HX and TGS.
I know of some guys in Norway that have MAN 8x4-6 with hydro drive and 80 tonne-meter cranes and they...
Rheinmetall was probably the top briber;)
I think the specification of the tender didn't match what Volvo or Scania offers.
I think all the...
