Impressive FH 540 8x4 heavy load tractor with PAC90 9 tonne pusher axle for Van Grinsven
TAGS: truck modification
This unit is based on a FH13 540 hp 6x4 tractor with retarder, medium chassis and a 3,500 mm wheelbase. Terberg Techniek fitted it with a lifting and steering Volvo 9 tonne pusher axle (PAC90). This has increased the legal GVW from 28 to 36 tonnes and the technical GVW from 32 to 40 tonnes. With the sliding fifth wheel in the forward position this extremely compact heavy load tractor complies with the statutory size limits which means there is no need to apply for an exemption. The unit is easy to manoeuvre due to the compact design and is particularly suitable for handling abnormal loads.
The body was fitted by BAS Truck Center, the boxes were supplied by Tilbox (formerly Tilburg Truck Parts) and the fuel tank by SB components.
