The weight-optimised drive axles on the prime movers boast low frictional loss and extremely smooth running. The trucks are fitted primarily with fuel-efficient hypoid drive axles for axle loads of up to 13 t. The trucks can be equipped with a further optimised planetary axle for axle loads of up to 16 t.
Vehicle and powertrain configurations are additionally available ex-factory which enable permissible gross truck and trailer weights of up to 70 t, 90 t, 120 t, or as a heavy haulage vehicle up to 250 t.
With fuel savings of up to 7% compared to its already fuel-efficient predecessor, the Mercedes-Benz Prime Movers with new 6-cylinder in-line engines are a particularly economical proposition. The engines are available in the four displacement classes 7.7 l, 10.7 l, 12.8 l and 15.6 l and in a total of 8 power output ratings from 260 kW (354 hp) to 460 kW (625 hp).
Mercedes-Benz employs many safety and assistance systems to reduce risks and ease the burden on the driver3. In addition to the electronic braking system with disengageable ABS, ASR, Brake Assist, Hill Holder and Active Brake Assist 42, which can detect the risk of collision with both stationary and moving obstacles, and crossing pedestrians below 50 kph; the high standard of safety is also supported by Stability Control Assist, Proximity Control Assist4 with stop/go functionality, Lane Keeping Assist, and Attention Assist. Standard systems such as the rain/light sensor, the co-driver mirror with a manoeuvring function and optional systems such as the bi-xenon headlamps2 and the tyre pressure monitoring system help the driver to avoid accidents.
A truck only earns money when it is up and running. As such, the prime requirement in the ever-tougher transport business is a truck that can be counted on to operate reliably. With a service life up to 20% longer than its predecessor, the Mercedes-Benz prime mover range is a shining example of how this is achieved.
All drive components of the Mercedes-Benz prime movers offer a particularly durable design, a high degree of reliability and an increased service life. The improved robustness of the new 6-cylinder in-line engine is the result of optimised engine cooling and design measures such as one-piece steel pistons, reinforced conrods and bearings and a more rigid crankcase.
At the heart of this truck modified specifically for Australian conditions is a unique comfort concept designed especially with drivers in mind.
