Mercedes-Benz Trucks has saved the best for last: With the presentation of the “king” class of its heavy-duty trucks, Mercedes-Benz today brought its Euro VI offensive to a close. The company is now displaying the heavy-duty Actros SLT and Arocs SLT trucks for the first time. These customized trucks can move up to 250 tons; this enables them to transport wind turbines, for example. The amount of work involved in customizing a truck is enormous, as the vehicle has to be fitted with stronger frames, additional axles, highly efficient cooling systems, a special clutch to help get the truck moving, and a high-performance braking system. And these are only the most important conversion tasks.
