Thanks to the direct steer system the Actros models with partial and full air suspension can make light work of any drive. All 2-axle and 3-axle Actros models are equipped with LS8 single-circuit hydraulic power steering, and all 4-axle vehicles have a dual-circuit system. In both cases, steering gear with differentiated ratios means that it only takes a small amount of power to turn the wheels fully, resulting in energy-conserving, sensitive manoeuvring. Weight-reduced forged and grey cast iron components ensure that the steering system is extremely reliable. In addition, the steering gear oil level and hydraulics system are continuously monitored by the Telligent® maintenance system, ensuring greater safety. All in all, the Actros steering system is notable for the reduced effort required to steer, the directional stability, precise response, excellent handling and its reliable and durable construction.
