The Mercedes-Benz Actros is a heavy duty truck produced by Mercedes-Benz in 1995. It is normally used for long-distance haulage, heavy duty distribution haulage and construction haulage. The Mercedes-Benz Actros is equipped with two types of engines. The OM 501 LA-541 and the OM 502 LA-542. The OM 501 is a 12-litre V6 and has outputs ranging from 310 horsepower to 480 horsepower. The fourth version offers several engine options in either Euro-5 or Euro-6.
The second generation Actros comes with an electronic sequential gearbox that Mercedes-Benz has dubbed the "Telligent Gearbox". The Telligent gearbox utilizes a computer together with a load-sensing system on the fifth-wheel coupling to estimate the proper gear that the truck must be in. The system consists of a small lever mounted under the right armrest and a flat switch underneath. The lever is slightly tilted so that it matches the natural curve of the driver's hand when it's on the armrest.
The advantage of Axor is that the driver does not directly operate on the gearbox, it significantly reduces the wear and tears on the gearbox itself. The cabin of the Actros is built with consideration for the driver. It provides a silent, smooth and pleasant ride. Pneumatic suspension of both the cab and the tractor itself makes for a really smooth feeling even on the roughest road. There are large storage spaces, especially in the MegaSpace cab. Additional storage spaces are available under the lower bunk.
