Mercedes-Benz Arocs as a 76-tonne lumber transport on Finland's icy roads


Recommended Posts

Daimler Press Release  /  March 27, 2017

German truck driver Friedhelm Schäfer emigrated to Finland eight years ago.

Since then, he has been driving his four-axle Mercedes-Benz Arocs with a nine-axle truck/trailer combination for a Finnish lumber transport company.

His daily load comprises 76 tonnes of lumber, which he transports distances of between 80 and 280 km on snowy and icy roads at minus 20°C.

In tricky conditions like these, Friedhelm Schäfer really appreciates the handling, comfort and winter performance of his 630 horsepower Arocs, his trusty companion across Finland's prairies.
