Combining Power, Robustness and Efficiency in a unique way, The Arocs continues the 110 year old tradition of Mercedes-Benz construction industry vehicles and takes it into the future with innovative, future-oriented technology.
Characteristic Mercedes-Benz Appearance
Designed from the ground up to provide a reliable, high-torque, flexible drive configuration to suit the construction industry down to the ground. That too is where it puts this power - to the ground, with frame and suspension configurations designed to work both on and off road. A robust design is not all that Arocs provides though - Efficiency in operation, through high payloads, outstanding reliability and low running costs is key to making the Arocs economical to use every day. Add to this mix a range of configurations and options to meet the needs of every operator and you have an enviable package. In short: the Arocs delivers everything that working life demands of it.
All of the seats in the Arocs offer optimum driver comfort, with a 40 mm wider seat, increased adjustment range and a wide range of finishes available. Whether the seat selected is a rugged man-made leather, durable cloth, smooth velour or luxurious leather, you can be sure that the Arocs seats will support you throughout the working day.
At the heart of the Arocs beats a range of high-torque, fuel efficient Euro VI engines from 240-630 hp, but power is nothing if you can’t get it to the ground. For that, a PowerShift 3 automated transmission is fitted as standard, as are differential locks for when going gets sticky. Power is not just about going though – Stopping power counts too, and with this in mind, a powerful engine brake as standard, plus a choice of disc or drum brakes – Electronically controlled of course bring proceedings to a halt in short order.
Higher payload means higher efficiency. The standard models, whether Tractor unit, Rigid Chassis, Tipper or Concrete mixer all offer excellent payloads with a high level of robustness, configurability and outstanding comfort.
For the times when every kilo counts, Arocs offers some additional models, built to give the absolute maximum payload. As an 8x4 Concrete mixer chassis or a 4x2 Tractor unit, the Arocs Loader provides a combination of equipment that can be even more profitable. Single tyres on the drive axle (where legislation permits) and weight optimised components from the windscreen to the battery cables all contribute to the low kerb weight, without compromising the application-matched durability.
In these two configurations, the Loader model is available with 7.7L or 10.7L engines up to 315kW (428hp), with 8- or 12-speed Mercedes PowerShift 3 transmissions and aluminium rims as standard. The flexibility to change the configuration is all yours – Why not speak to your local Mercedes-Benz dealer for more information?
For Extreme Conditions. Arocs Grounder.
Whether it’s the terrain or the load that is extreme, the Arocs Grounder is up to the job, offering higher design weights, more ground clearance and more traction.
With a flexible reinforced chassis made of cold formed, high strength 9 mm steel, reinforced anti-roll bars, and a choice of high strength steel suspension setups, the Arocs is designed to perform off road, whilst coping with the loads imposed by heavy loads. A wide choice of heavy duty axles adds to this – with axle loads up to 9t on front axles and 16t on rear axles available. All Wheel Drive versions are also on offer, and as standard the design weight of the truck is higher - up to 41t on 8x4, 8x6 and 8x8 versions, with options to increase this even higher if required.
The Grounder offers much more than this, as the basis for all extreme duty chassis – whether being fitted with very large loading cranes, concrete pumps, excavation equipment or even as a Heavy Haulage tractor unit, the Arocs Grounder takes it in its stride.
The Arocs is available with a choice of four engine displacements and 16 power ratings from 175 kW (238 hp) to 460 kW (625 hp), each designed for maximum fuel efficiency, maximum torque and driveability, low noise & emissions and a long life with unsurpassed reliability. All ratings are offered complying with the most stringent Euro VI emissions standard, helping you to future-proof your business.
All are designed for economy, and the Arocs delivers outstanding fuel savings of up to 4% at Euro VI (compared to the already frugal predecessors). Just one of the impressive credentials, and on the OM 47x 10.7, 12.8 and 15.6 l engines this impressive figure can be attributed in part to the X-Pulse common-rail high-pressure injection system which injects fuel into the cylinders at up to 2,100 bar.
In addition to saving on fuel, the new truck engines will save in other areas with reduced AdBlue consumption of up to 40% reduction with Euro VI, reduced maintenance costs, and increased design life.
