Take the curves in your stride.
Whatever your load.

Need to distribute your load on many axles? Don’t need drive on more than one? Then we have two proposals, one which gives you unparalleled flexibility when it comes to manoeuvring on narrow roads and one that is very suitable when you have high front axle load.


Tridem. The truly agile one.

The 8×4 with single front axle has a tridem bogie rear suspension, of which the tag axle is hydraulically steered. This gives an unprecedented small turning circle.

This tridem bogie has several other advantages too: Raising the tag axle contributes to less wear on tyres and less fuel consumption. Optimized rear axle pressure on every axle means better traction thanks to the air suspension. If needed, the driver can adjust axle load distribution for better traction.

Dual front axles.
When you’ve got a heavy front load.

The 8×4 with dual front axles and a driven bogie brings the option of high front axle loads. This is suitable for superstructures with a crane or a concrete pump for example.
