Described by one commentator as the ‘Actros with Attitude’, the first Mercedes-Benz Actros SLT has landed in Ireland with Mar-Train Heavy Haulage Ireland Ltd.
Mar-Train is the only heavy haulage company with bases in both the North and South of Ireland. This truck being registered in their Irish fleet, cements their place at the forefront of Heavy Haulage in Ireland and the UK.
Larger, longer, tougher and stronger than any in the Actros family, the SLT is a semitrailer tractor which has been systematically designed and built for heavy haulage which can operate as a solo vehicle carrying up to 250 tonnes.
Setting new benchmarks in comfort, vehicle performance and flexibility, the SLT marks a new dimension in heavy haulage with a cab that delivers the living and working comfort needed by heavy haulage drivers.
Referred to by Fergus Conheady, sales manager for Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles as ‘the new power for heavy haulage’ the SLT has up to 630hp available.
Supplied and delivered by Cork Truck Services Ltd, the model chosen by Mar-Train Heavy Haulage is an Actros SLT 4163 GigaSpace 8×4 tractor unit equipped withdriver and co-driver ventilated suspension seats, auxillary hot water heater, luxury bed top and bottom, and leather steering wheel with Style-Line interior design. Ambient lighting and FleetBoard also make up the specifications package.
