Mercedes-Benz Actros 3365 - Ruppert

Ruppert from Frickenhausen (DE) is an earth-moving and demolition company that is using for the transport of their own machinery this sharp combination, existing out of a 3-axle truck with 8-axle low loader.

The truck is this sharp Mercedes-Benz Actros 3365. The truck is powered by the strongest version of the Mercedes-Benz OM 502 LA, a 15.9-liter V8-diesel engine with a power of 480 kW (653 hp). This is the strongest engine that Mercedes-Benz has ever used in a truck.

The truck isn't standard like this; by Titan from Sulzbach (DE) is the chassis reinforced, the VIAB turbo coupling installed and the tower behind the tower installed.

Behind the cabin is the heavy equipment tower with large diesel tank, the hydraulic oil tank and large cooler for the engine installed. To cool the VIAB turbo coupling are on top another two coolers installed. The tower is sharply finished by the side fenders. Behind the front axle are the muffler, battery and two compressed-air tanks installed.

The truck was used with low loaders and tippers, this is why left of the Mercedes-Benz star is a folding sign with the letter "A" (from Abfall (EN: Garbage)) is installed.

On the other side are behind the front axle the air filter, the AdBlue tank and another two compressed-air tanks installed. There is no tow coupling installed, so only trailers with a king-pin can be attached.

Attached is an 8-axle Goldhofer STZ-VP 8 (3+5). During the empty ride are the three axles in the front lifted.

In the meantime was this sharp truck by Ruppert replaced by a new Arocs 3363. This truck found a new life at the company Amirco in Iraq.
