Mercedes Tractor Units
“Not words but deeds”, that’s what Mercedes Trucks stands for. The German manufacturer has a considerable market share with the Actros, Axor, Arocs, and Antos. Each model has its own specialty. Where the Arocs is extremely suitable for construction traffic, the Actros and Axor are best suited for road transport. BAS Trucks always has a wide range of different Mercedes tractor units in stock. By filtering by mileage, configuration and of course the model, every customer can easily find the ideal Mercedes truck.
Mercedes presented its first truck in 1926 in Berlin. At that time the range consisted of 3 models, of which the heaviest was allowed to transport 5 tons. Less than a century later, all models have undergone major changes. In 2018 Mercedes unveiled the new Actros. One of the changes is a completely renewed digital dashboard. The truck has also become more economical and safer.
The Actros and Axor trucks are available in different axle configurations. The most popular configuration is 4x2. But every transport is unique. With a higher tonnage, you need more axles. In this case, for example, a 6x2 or 6x4 can offer a solution. The load is distributed over more axles, which is necessary for heavy transport. You can also choose a 4x4 for extra grip in hilly terrains.
At the end of 2018 Mercedes presents the new Actros. In fact, this is a facelift of the model introduced in 2012. The truck has been renewed in a large number of areas. Both in the interior and exterior. Most remarkable are the 2 screens in the dashboard. The analog meters have been replaced by a bright color screen. In addition, the screen for the radio and navigation can be operated via the touchscreen. The visibility has also been improved by thinner A-pillars, allowing the driver to look outside even better.
What does a young used Mercedes cost?
The price of a young used Mercedes truck has a lot to do with the age and condition of the vehicle. The mileage also makes a lot of difference. A newer truck can last longer and is, therefore, more expensive. At BAS Trucks you can already buy an Actros starting from € 13,000. Expect to spend about € 70,000 if you want a young used Mercedes-Benz tractor unit.
