A robust and multipurpose truck.
Weight-optimised, sturdy frame for particularly easy mounting.
The Atego’s frame combines low weight with a highly robust design, while its “Z” shape and a 50-mm hole matrix enable bodies and mounted components such as extra fuel tanks to be installed without drilling additional holes. The frame also enables a very low entrance height and convenient access through to the co-driver’s side. Frame members are available in thicknesses of 7.0 mm, ensuring a high bending strength and torsional rigidity for any application.
Efficiency in braking.
The Atego is available with drum brakes all round. All brakes are equipped with anti-lock braking system (ABS) as standard, plus a dual-circuit pneumatic braking system operating at 10 bar of constant pressure. It ensures vehicle drivability even in emergency braking situation. The powerful engine brake “Top Brake”, an exclusive Mercedes-Benz feature and offered as standard, sensibly improves braking power, providing fuel economy and reduction of wear in brake components and tires.
The Atego suspension - for stability and easy handling.
The Atego is fitted as standard with steel suspension, featuring parabolic springs and double-acting telescopic shock absorbers, to ensure maximum comfort and stability for every transport task.
