Mercedes-Benz Trucks has saved the best for last: With the presentation of the king class of its heavy-duty trucks, Mercedes-Benz brought its Euro VI offensive to a close. The company is now displaying the heavy-duty Mercedes-Benz Actros SLT and Mercedes-Benz 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.
