Siegfried climbs out of an Arocs 1851 tractor unit. "You really
have to pay a lot of attention here on this course, but then that's
also the case under tough conditions." Siegfried, who usually
works in construction-site haulage in the foothills of the Alps, knows
his stuff. He has just tested the Hydraulic Auxiliary Drive in the
1851 and talked shop with driving instructor Uwe Ackermann.
Sascha from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is beaming from ear to ear after
driving the Arocs 3345 6×6: "It is the most amazing feeling when
you feel the power and the traction while driving."
The day before, the tipper show participants visited the
Mercedes-Benz Wörth plant, where they experienced the production of
Actros, Arocs and co close up. Jean-François, who has travelled to the
event from Belgium: "The factory is so impressive! Especially as
every lorry is really a unique specimen."
