Super heavy-duty (SLT)
Super heavy-duty transport includes some of the most challenging tasks in the industry, moving items such as giant turbines and transformers, marine diesel engines, machinery, boilers and wind power plants. The Actros SLT is an extremely robust high-tech heavy-haulage truck, designed to handle these highest levels of stress and strain.

The Actros SLT: master of heavy haulage.
The base vehicle is produced at the Mercedes-Benz truck plant in Wörth; the remaining assemblies are fitted at Custom Tailored Trucks (CTT). These include the cooling tower behind the cab together with the components installed in the tower, the steered leading axle on the four-axle semi-trailer tractors or the trailer brackets with heavy-duty couplings at front and rear, the adjustable fifth-wheel coupling, a pressure plate at the rear, the so-called catwalk behind the cooling tower, and the floodlights.
Gross combination weight (GCW) options.
For a gross truck and trailer weight of 250 t, the Actros SLT heavy-haulage vehicle is available in numerous configurations with three and four axles, and with a turbo retarder clutch.
For operators who can get by with total truck and trailer weights of up to 120 t in predominantly gentle terrain, the heavy-haulage vehicle is also available as a semi-heavy version without a turbo retarder clutch and without an auxiliary radiator system.
Perfectly coordinated: stellar quality from a single manufacturer.
Customers opting for the Actros SLT heavy-haulage vehicle benefit from a highly specialised truck produced by a single manufacturer. This means perfectly coordinated components: the engine, transmission and axles all bear the Mercedes star.
