new SLT heavy-haulage vehicle is a high-calibre specialist that meets the requirements
of a highly demanding transport segment. The engine, transmission and axles in
the vehicle all bear the Mercedes star. The basic SLT vehicle is manufactured
at the Mercedes-Benz Wörth truck plant in Germany and completed by the
subsidiary CTT (Custom Tailored Trucks) in Molsheim, France.
sturdy truck is being produced in several variants. An outstanding choice on
all fronts is the air-sprung Actros SLT with the spacious GigaSpace and
BigSpace cabs measuring 2.5 m in width. The steel-sprung Arocs SLT based on the
particularly robust Arocs Grounder is also available with the BigSpace cab as well
as the StreamSpace cab measuring 2.3 m in width.
four-axle variants form the core of the range. In this configuration the
technically permissible gross vehicle weight is 41 t, while the individual axle
loads (from front to rear) are nine, eight and 2x13 t. For export markets,
higher tractor GVWs of as much as 48 t for the Arocs 8x8 are possible. The
permissible gross combination weight for all models stands at 250 t.
SLT is an extremely robust high-tech heavy-haulage vehicle which is designed to
cope with the highest levels of stress and strain. For operators who do not
have to contend with such extremes and who can get by with total truck and
trailer weights of up to 120 t in predominantly easy-going terrain, the SLT is
also available as a semi-heavy version without turbo retarder clutch and
without an auxiliary radiator system. A total truck and trailer weight of 150 t
is then also possible, subject to certain restrictions in the course of
individual approval procedures, depending on the equipment on board and the
area of operation.
