4x2 Trucks for Sale (1962)

These pages are full of used 4×2 trucks for sale. That means that all of the trucks on these pages have just two axles. The maximum gross vehicle weight for these trucks is 18 tonnes. This is usually made up of a 10-tonne rear axle and an 8-tonne front axle. The most common sized 4×2 truck is the 7.5 tonner (as in image below), but an increasing number of businesses are opting for heavier 4×2 rigids for larger payloads. How does that work with a 4×2 tractor unit? They still have a gross vehicle weight of 18 tonnes as they only have 2 axles, but when towing a trailer the train weight can be much higher than this. The ‘Gross Train Weight’ (GTW) or Gross Combined Weight (GCW) is the maximum legal weight of the truck, trailer and load combined. With a 3-axle semi-trailer and a it is possible to have a 4×2 tractor unit with a GTW of 40 tonnes in the UK for normal operation.

4×2 Rigid Commercial Vehicles

This covers everything from the smallest van to an 18-tonne, 30ft box truck. If it has two axles (and is not a all wheel drive) then it’s a 4×2. Now it’s easy to see where we get the term 4×4!

Mercedes Actros Trucks Replace Mixed Fleet

Nobilia Projects, the British contracts division of Europe’s largest kitchen manufacturer, has replaced their mixed fleet with seven new Mercedes Actros trucks. The seven Actros rigids are based at the 55,000 sq ft UK head office and distribution centre that Nobilia GB opened in 2018 on the Kingsway Business Park, Rochdale, a stone’s throw from Junction 21 of the M62. Supplied by Ciceley Commercials, they are the subject of a Mercedes-Benz Finance contract hire agreement under which routine inspections and maintenance are carried out at the Dealer’s Bolton workshop. Its latest trucks – four 26-tonners and three 18-tonners – are…

Volvo FM’s Direct Vision Stars Seal the Deal

What a great looking truck – and with both form and function, this drawbar demountable Volvo FM removal truck has clearly had a great deal of effort put into both (although reversing the drawbar trailer under two demountable bodies in a straight line would be beyond most of us mere mortal drivers). The Volvo FM 430 4x2 rigid has entered service at James Removals on the back of a glowing recommendation from another operator. Supplied by Mark Reeves, Truck Sales Executive at MC Truck & Bus, the new FM has been specified to meet Transport for London’s three-star Direct Vision…

1.2M Miles Mercedes Atego Heralds Loyalty

If you had a 7.5 tonner that had done 1.2 million miles in six years – a) you would have had your money’s worth and b) you would be highly likely to buy the same again. That helps to explain The Formula One Group’s most recent decision to buy another few of them.  The company knows a winner when it sees one – which explains why the West Midlands-based fabricator and installer of premium-quality UPVC windows, doors and conservatories has been relying on Mercedes-Benz trucks since it began trading 24 years ago. The recent arrivals of another couple mean it…

Scania L-Series for Safe Skiploader Operation

Most skips are used in urban environments and the truck used to deliver and collect them can travel further than most dustcarts – with drivers in an out of the cab nearly as frequently.  This means that ease of cab access combined with excellent pedestrian visibility should be a must. It was these qualities and more that pointed london-based O'Donovan Waste Disposal Limited to become the UK's first waste management and recycling specialist to introduce a skiploader based on a Scania L-series chassis into service.  Benefiting from a Transport for London five star Direct Vision Standard (DVS) rating, the vehicle…

Who Makes the Greenest Truck in 2022?

A Scania has once again – for the sixth year in a row – been named “Green Truck” for its outstanding transport efficiency and fuel performance. This time Scania entered a truck with the new Super-based powertrain. All the manufacturers of heavy trucks in Europe are invited to this prestigious comparison test that is organised annually by two German trade magazines with the aim of identifying the most fuel-efficient long-haul truck. “I am extremely pleased that a Scania is ranked as the most transport-efficient truck for the sixth time in a row,” says Stefan Dorski, Senior Vice President and Head…
