This is your every nightmare about brake failure realized in one flat out crash. Unbelievably, this driver survived. You're looking at Diumar Bueno racing in the Brazilian Formula Truck series back in 2012. We know that he survived with a mere two broken legs, a broken arm and a cut tongue.
A new all-wheel drive chassis MZKT-800500-011 14x14 was designed for mounting specialized equipment of oil and gas industry, as well as to move them out of public roads. A mximum payload is 55 tonnes, and a curb weight is 35 tons. The obvious advantage of the chassis in difficult road conditions is hydto-balancing suspension. The easy control of the chassis provides by steerable wheels of three front and two rear axles. Moving the chassis on public roads is possible only with a permittion, with a top speed of 40 kph.
Behind the cab there are two 6-cylinder Caterpillar C15 ACERT diesels, with a capacity of 580 hp each. The movement of the chassis provides by engine-transmission unit placed on the left. One of the main advantages of the chassis is integration of the platform for the equipment and the frame of the chassis. This solution allows to lower the center of gravity, which positively affects on a stability of the truck.
Currently available as a classic panel van, heavy-duty chassis cab and as a comfortable minibus, the Iveco Daily is set to receive an Unimog-like 4x4 variant late this year. These are the first spy photographs of the Iveco Daily 4x4 and it’s not surprising the Italian company decided to stretch its legs in arctic conditions. Boasting with similar looks to the previously mentioned Daily variants, the pre-production 4x4 prototype sits a lot higher from the ground and wears a single cab body.
A double cabin 4x4 is expected to be introduced as well, while powertrain options are rumoured to be limited to a single combo: Fiat’s 170 PS and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) 3-liter turbo diesel mated to either a six-speed semi-automatic gearbox or a ZF 8HP automatic transmission, whichever proves easier to adapt for the heavy-duty line of work the 2015 Iveco Daily 4x4 is designed for.
The largest Chinese manufacturer FAW announced the creation of a sub-brand of cheap trucks FAW Lingyuan. Models produced by this division will use brand FAC. The top popular in China Isuzu 700P was chosen as the base for a design of the first FAC truck, which got an index FH33KD. Despite the fact that the new model belongs to the lower line, it has a good equipment: power steering, engine brake, ABS, electric windows, CD stereo. In the future FAW will create a full range of budget trucks under FAC brand.
If you thought getting a gas turbine from A-B was a case of horespower and a bit of planning, think again. Corners no longer exist in this world of haulage.
Hi, I would like some information on the 2624. L series such as the gearbox ley out on the lwb chassis freight vehicle.
Hi I would like to revamp my 1992 Unimog 1700 Tractor. After 14 years of good service it has returned me. I've been searching for a very long time for a Magazine/catalogue for Unimogs. Something like the "Landy" for Land Rover which I'm sure you are familiar. There is a lot written on old mogs,etc in U.S.&Europe. I'm really talking the mainstream everyday working ones, i.e. 423 &427 series ones. For good used components & attachments.
