Fewer cents per kilometre - the Actros drive train configurations, which have been optimised for different applications, will help you economise on operations. And the reliable Euro 5 engines with the BlueTec® SCR diesel technology will keep consumption low, enabling you to meet the Euro 5 standard economically.
Depending on application, the Telligent® maintenance system allows service intervals of up to 120,000 km and optional oil change intervals of up to 150,000 km. The system monitors the load intensity on the Actros, which in turn optimises the use of all service fluids. Consumption-optimised tyres with a long service life and optional super-wide tyres on light-alloy rims increase the truck’s payload by around 110 kg, and also reduce rolling resistance. Fuel economy is further improved by the two-stage water pump* and, for the air-sprung 4x2 semitrailer tractor, a compressed-air regulator and optional aerodynamic A-pillar panelling.
Optional Economy Packs can reduce costs further still. Over and above this, the Mercedes PowerShift 2 automatic transmission, which is fitted as standard, increases economy and impresses with smoothness and swiftness of its optimised gear changing.
A large savings potential is also possible through reasonably-priced service contracts and services such as FleetBoard® and Mercedes-Benz BlueTecEco driver training, which encourage a more fuel-efficient, low-wear driving style. Our extensive workshop network with more than 1750 service outlets throughout Europe – some of which remain open round the clock – help to ensure that your truck is back in operation as soon as possible after a breakdown. We give our all to make sure of it.
