Productivity/Cost

Payload

The articulated configuration facilitates the carriage of significantly higher payload than conventional rigid frame trucks.

Reduced Tyre Wear

Even distribution of traction and braking effort between all drive wheels and the reduced effect of tyre scrub through the rear steered bogie contribute to reduced tyre wear particularly on off-highway applications.

Increased Manoeuvrability

Leads to a reduction of driver fatigue and improves productivity.

Reduced Chassis and Axle Stresses

The longitudinal oscillation between the tractor and trailer keeps all drive wheels in contact with the ground and significantly reduces the frame bending and twisting stresses experienced by rigid frame trucks when travelling on uneven ground, therefore reducing wear to the vehicle.
