Actros Payload

Maximum Payload – Actros Loader

The concept of a truck designed for maximum payload is nothing new – but never before has it been implemented in such a systematic manner. As a result, the Actros Loader is extremely light despite the significantly heavier Euro VI technology, achieved by a whole raft of standard-fit weight-reducing measures, some minor and some more major, which combine together to enable you to carry more payload.
Both as tractor unit or rigid, the new Actros Loader models are offered with a wide range of frugal engine options to suit the task at hand: 7.7 l displacement and an output of 200 kW1) (272 hp) up to 260 kW (354 hp), or 10.7 l displacement and an output of 240 kW (326 hp) up to 315 kW (428 hp), all with 8 or 12-speed Mercedes PowerShift 3 transmissions and super-wide tyres on aluminium rims as standard.

There is a choice of ClassicSpace or StreamSpace cabs, with 170 mm or 320 mm engine tunnels – offering the ultimate in flexibility to suit the operation. The fact that the new Actros Loader is one of the lightest trucks in long-distance transport doesn’t mean that you have to do without the high levels of safety so typical for the Actros, however. As with all Actros models, the Actros Loader is available with a complete range of safety systems – either singly or bundled in appropriate and particularly reasonably-priced optional Safety Packs. Large payloads don’t pay off until they have arrived safely at their destination.
