Especially reliable - thanks to over 110 years of experience in vehicle construction.

During the construction of our trucks, we always use the strictest quality standards: real-life requirements. Or in short: your requirements.

For us, this means providing you with trucks that operate without a hitch, even in extreme conditions and in difficult terrain. In other words: “Trucks you can trust”.

As your partner who helps you to master your daily transport tasks efficiently, we will continue to put our all into ensuring you have reliable vehicles at your disposal. With the wealth of experience that comes from more than 110 years in vehicle manufacturing. With trucks boasting robust components that have been tried and tested thousands of times and equipment designed to cope with the topographic and climatic conditions that prevail where the vehicles are to be operated. This applies to engines, gearshifts, transmissions and drive axles as well as frames, chassis, suspension and cabs, as a reliable truck can only ever be the sum of its reliable individual components.

Work at the Development and Testing Centre in Wörth, Germany draws on the extensive experience available here, applying the very latest scientific methods and focusing on our customers’ expectations. In addition everything we develop is subjected to extreme stress testing. From the functional testing of individual components through to endurance trials on the test track to driving trials, we test all aspects of our trucks’ robustness, durability and reliability.

Anti-corrosion protection for the cabs through the use of galvanised panels, robust frames protected from corrosion by means of cathodic dip priming, a transmission oil cooler for reduced thermal stress, efficient air filters and long maintenance intervals are all factors that contribute to a high level of reliability.
