For all terrain operation
Articulated trucks are recognised as being the most efficient means of transporting heavy goods on highway. Off highway, however, they have severe limitations due to a large proportion of the gross weight being carried on the non-driven axles, the tractor front steering axle tends to lift on adverse grades and manoeuvrability is restricted due to trailer cut-in. Rigid frame trucks offer improved traction but lack payload capacity and suffer from poor manoeuvrability.
The Multidrive driveline system fitted on to an articulated tractor unit overcomes these limitations and provides a robust, proven system that combines the payload benefits of the articulated configuration with higher traction than that of the rigid frame truck and with immensely improved manoeuvrability. It can be fitted to a wide variety of standard tractor units were off highway performance is just as important as it is on highway.
