Bodybuilder preparations

Frame Body Builder Hole Row
The upper hole row is reserved for the body builder. All brackets in the upper hole row have an offset and an 8 millimetre spacer. No rivets are used in the upper hole row.

Crane Preparation
Crane plates on the chassis can be factory- mounted.

Crane Preparation Kit
Crane plates on the chassis can be factory- mounted. The battery box is moved rearwards and the fixation plates are mounted behind the cab on each side of the chassis. An electrical preparation kit – ELCRANE – is included.

 

Fifth Wheels
An ISO fifth wheel with L-shaped profiles at different heights is included in the range, offering considerable freedom of choice. The flange-mounted fifth wheel is a low-weight variant since it does not require any attach- ment plate. The fifth wheel’s height above the chassis is from around 150 millimetres. Integrated lubrication and trailer connection indicator is available as option for specific variants.

Brakes

EBS (Electronically-controlled Brake System) provides superior response, performance and brake feel, while providing access to a number of handy features. Upgrade your brake system by adding the EBS Medium package or any of the additional options. EBS is standard on all specifications.

EBS Medium
In addition to the EBS Standard package, EBS Medium adds the following features:

Hill Start Aid
The brakes are only released once there is sufficient engine torque to propel the vehicle forward.

ESC (Electronic Stability Control)
The brake stability system applies the brakes individually on each wheel, thereby providing stability for the entire vehicle combination and counteracting jack-knifing, rollover and trailer swing. ESC fulfils the legislation of Electronic Vehicle Stability Control, and is available for 2- and 3-axle vehicles.

 

Hydraulic retarder
Hydraulic retarder for AL306 gearbox. The compact, integrated hydraulic retarder is mounted on the gearbox and offers braking torque retardation of 1490 Nm.
