Superpower for oversized loads

Recommended Posts

Scania Group Press Release  /  November 9, 2018

The first V8-powered Scania S 730 8×4/4 heavy haulage truck has just been delivered to the Polish specialist in heavy and oversized loads, Strychacz.

“This Scania S 730 is now the most powerful tractor in my company,” says owner

Ireneusz Strychacz. “I chose Scania because it’s simple to operate, provides good driver comfort, low fuel consumption, and is trouble-free.”

Strychacz has been operating Scania since 1989 when it purchased its first truck. It now has 16 heavy haulage Scania trucks in the fleet. The company carries out demanding transport assignments throughout Europe with customers in Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and the Czech Republic.

“From the very beginning I’ve had Scania trucks,” says Strychacz. “First, it was standard transport and later heavy-haulage. We transport planes, tanks, propellers, pipes, gantries, construction machines – well, everything we can carry.”

Is that a aerodynamic fairing behind and on top of the cab?

My Dutch trucker buddy says the 730 is rubbish.. transmission hunts constantly, never allows full power.

Seriously, go drive one for yourself. The only negative will be that afterwards, you'll never want to drive anything else.

Note the spin-on oil filter on the drive axles. A Scania standard feature.

Why don't US market trucks have such a common sense feature? Designed to wear out from new.

Engine strong but because of automatic trans and emission rules, 1300 rpm at 90 km/h. When climbing shifting always too late and slow. Drops down to 1050 rpm, then shifts. At 1300 rpm 500 hp, and you seldom reach higher rpm. Old 14 l v8; 530 hp at 1500 rpm. Much faster with manual trans. I sold my 730 after 10 months
