They are really cool arent they, i heard them qoute 550 hp, we have those trucks operating throughout the uk and europe, using the same power ratio,
pulling 44 tonnes, i would imagine that it takes a while to get some speed up on this, once going, would be interesting to see how long it takes too
I used to be an lgv driver, you wouldnt believe how easy they are too drive, forward is the easiest. It sounds like a normal unit too me, may have an
extra gear or 2, but the ones i used to drive years ago had 16, well 8 really with half gears shifting between each gear, and a low and hi range
between 4 and 8th or 8th and 16th depending on how you look at it.
Would love to drive 1 of these, would have to be on long straight highways though as they said, bit of a nightmare taing this thing around the uk
thanks for posting, had not seen them this long before.
