Maximum Payload – Antos Loader
In just the same way as new Actros, the Antos offers a variant for maximum payload in a more systematic manner than ever before. As a result, the Antos Loader is extremely light despite the 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 Antos 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 kW*) (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 all four ClassicSpace cabs, as S-Cab or M-Cab and with 170 mm or 320 mm engine tunnels – offering the ultimate in flexibility to suit the operation. The fact that the Antos Loader is one of the lightest trucks in distribution doesn’t mean that you have to do without the high levels of safety so typical for a Mercedes-Benz Truck. As with all Antos models, the Antos 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.
