Most mining activities take place far away from civilization, so drivers appreciate trucks that make the long journeys less tiring. And in these jagged landscapes, the right ground clearance can make all the difference.

Off-road made easier: optimum weight distribution and automatic transmission.
The Zetros’ improved weight distribution compared to a conventional cab design makes driving off-road for many hours much more comfortable. The big 14.00 R20 tyres provide the required ground clearance and the 6-speed Allison converter automatic transmission allows fast, smooth gear changes without noticeably interrupting traction.
The best of both worlds: high loads and off-road mobility.
With the Zetros’ modular concept, Mercedes-Benz has combined the best of both worlds: uncompromising off-road capability and high load capacity. In addition to the advantages of permanent all-wheel drive on a bonnet-type truck, drivers feel more relaxed and safe, and their long journeys seem shorter.
