Mercedes SLT, The New Force In Heavy Haulage
Special transport calls for special vehicles. That’s where the Arocs SLT comes in – a range of tractive units designed and built for operation up to 250 tonnes. From first sight and for a very long time to come, the new cabs offer the living and working comfort required in heavy haulage. Powerful, reliable Euro VI engines up to 460 kW (625 hp) and 3000 Nm, Mercedes PowerShift 3 16-speed automated transmission and the unique Turbo Retarder Clutch give a drive system that is extremely resilient and provide the exceptionally fine control of the power you need.
Available ex-factory with steel suspension as a 3 axle 6×4 or 6×6, and with 4 axles as 8×4, 8×6 or 8×8 configurations, the Arocs SLT is complemented by 6×4 and 8×4 versions of the Actros SLT with air suspension. Regardless of model, the chassis is particularly robust, and a wide choice of suspension and axles to transfer the power to the road with total precision, under all conditions. All models are available with a huge and varied range of equipment to ensure the flexibility to perfectly configure a vehicle for any application. Front and rear couplings, a range of heavy duty fifth wheels, trailer hydraulics and ballast platforms are just a few examples of the equipment available ex-factory. We understand that heavy haulage is not a one size fits all business, so to find out more and to get a truck configured to a specification that suits your business, please contact your local Mercedes-Benz Dealer.
