Sharp Danish Actros
« on: July 01, 2007, 08:41:28 AM »
Found this sharp Danish Mercedes Actros 2548 MegaSpace at Sandnes today. It is owned by B.G. Madsen of Bording, Denmark, and hauls for Danish farm implement manufacturer Bording.

Thanks, Daniel! No, it's not really common, but I've seen a few with that kind of tire on the pusher axle. As for the engine, it's actually comparatively "weak" compared to what's most common in Norwegian Actros MegaSpaces I see around here, which is 500-580 hp. Norwegian truckers seem to have a thing for excessive power...  :-D

So now I know where I get that thing at, maybe I should just come over there and drive since most of the companies have the power im looking for.

A lot more common on tag axles. Low tire on tag makes the tag lift higher, big help on winter.

Hehehe, no problem, there's a serious driver shortage in Norway as well, so you'd find yourselves behind the wheel of whatever kind of truck you'd feel like over here in no time ;)
