This is a real heavy-duty transport task!
The biggest ship propellers in the world have a diameter of around ten metres and weigh as much as 130 tonnes. The Actros for loads of up to 250 tonnes with its powerful drivetrain is more than used to hauling these gigantic copper-alloy pieces – after all, it was built for shifting particularly heavy and oversized loads. So it's no wonder that the journey from the foundry to final assembly on the ocean liner's propeller shaft is a piece of cake for it.
