Otte Lisse BV is a supplier of soil, fertiliser, and materials for road construction. The company often has to make deliveries to sites with poor ground conditions. They commissioned Terberg Techniek to convert an Volvo FMX500 8x6 to a 10x6 C-Ride wide spread with PAC100-H2 pusher axle. We have been converting 8x4 trucks to 10x4 for some time and now with the development of a new mounting unit for the pusher axle we can now also convert 8x6 vehicles to 10x6.
This truck offers excellent manoeuvrability as both the pusher axle and the rear driven axle are steering. In fact, four of the five axles are steering. Both the pusher axle and the wide spread tandem axle have hydraulic suspension for greatly improved stability, both when driving and when stopped. Finally, the pusher axle can lift.
The great advantage of this 10x6 truck is that it still meets the N3G off-road requirements, unlike a 10x4 vehicle.
The chassis will be fitted with a Ruizeveld tipper body.
