Other features across the range include a higher-torque gearbox and propeller shaft, powerful differential and hub reduction, and a maximum traction capacity of 210 t.

“The time has come to launch a product with the highest load capacity of its peers in the market,” says Sven-Erik Gustafsson, head of Scania Mining. “Once again, Scania is at the forefront of innovation to exceed customer expectations and take on the yellow equipment manufacturers. Compared to its 8x4 competitors, the Scania 10x4 reduces cost per tonne by up to 15% since fewer vehicles are needed to move the same load.”
