The new Antos. Both a milestone and a benchmark for the future. A whole new class of truck that has been specifically developed for distribution work from 18 t upwards.
Built to cater exactly to your requirements across all applications. Meaning you can go about your day-to-day tasks more effectively and efficiently whatever your line of work, whether its grocery transport, retail supply services or tanker and dry-bulk haulage.
This is all thanks to practical, comfortable cabs, responsive and dynamic powertrain configurations featuring fuel-saving, low-emission Euro VI engines, as well as extremely safe, assured driving characteristics.
This is backed up by low repair and maintenance costs, complete ease of body mounting and a diverse product portfolio – including special model variants designed for payload-sensitive and volume-oriented haulage.
In short, a truck which points the way forward with a new name and a new face. First and foremost though, one which offers you a tailored, purpose-built solution for all distribution applications from 18 t upwards.
The new Antos. Call your local dealer and experience the new class of truck in heavy-duty distribution.
In just the same way as new Actros, the Antos offers a variant for maximum payload in a more systematic manner than ever before. As a result, the Antos Loader is extremely light despite the Euro VI technology, achieved by a whole raft of standard-fit weight-reducing measures, some minor and some more major, which combine together to enable you to carry more payload.
Both as tractor unit or rigid, the new Antos Loader models are offered with a wide range of frugal engine options to suit the task at hand: 7.7 l displacement and an output of 200 kW*) (272 hp) up to 260 kW (354 hp), or 10.7 l displacement and an output of 240 kW (326 hp) up to 315 kW (428 hp), all with 8 or 12-speed Mercedes PowerShift 3 transmissions and super-wide tyres on aluminium rims as standard.
There is a choice of all four ClassicSpace cabs, as S-Cab or M-Cab and with 170 mm or 320 mm engine tunnels – offering the ultimate in flexibility to suit the operation. The fact that the Antos Loader is one of the lightest trucks in distribution doesn’t mean that you have to do without the high levels of safety so typical for a Mercedes-Benz Truck. As with all Actros models, the Antos Loader is available with a complete range of safety systems – either singly or bundled in appropriate and particularly reasonably-priced optional Safety Packs. Large payloads don’t pay off until they have arrived safely at their destination.
Whether you need a low frame height high volume transport or for ease of loading, the Antos Volumer model offers much more - fuel-saving powertrain configurations, an increased range and perfect alignment to the application for which you intend to deploy it – the Antos Volumer shows how tractor units and rigid trucks need to be built today, to make high-volume haulage especially profitable.
Other than class-leading frame heights, the Antos Volumer offers so many other benefits.
The range of fuel tanks provide a huge volume – up to 1000 l despite the addition of Euro VI exhaust technology. The full range of 13 engine ratings from 175 kW (238 hp) to 350 kW (476 hp)* play their part in increasing the range, by using less fuel per kilometre travelled –helped even further by the range of direct-drive transmissions. For ultimate flexibility, a wide range of chassis configurations are available, along with all 6 application matched cabs in the Antos range.
