Scania S Series Trucks for Sale (2)

A rare beast in the UK used truck market, we are starting to see examples of Scania’s latest flagship the S Series for sale in the UK’s used market from 2021 but larger numbers won’t be seen until 2023 or later.

This new cab supersedes the R Series (which still continues production) as the top cab in the Scania range and obviously the one that all the drivers are yearning for.

The cab is a flat floor design and comes in two heights – ‘Normal’ and ‘Highline’ which gives the upper bunk an additional 10-20 centimetres space – and, of course, extra standing height for the driver inside the cab.

Ergonomic alterations around the positioning of the dashboard, the seats and the steering wheels means that the driver has a better view of the road than in the R-Series equivalent.

Choose from the 13-Litre with SCR only (no EGR) with outputs of 370, 410, 450 and 500HP or push the boat out and go for the famous, 16-litre Scania V8 with ratings at 520, 580, 650 and a whopping 730hp.

The S Series has a choice of 8-speed range-change gearbox, 12-speed range-splitter gearbox or the Opticruise G33M gearbox (for higher output engines from 500hp). For fans of driving backwards, the Opticruise gearbox effectively has 8 reverse speeds.

Used Scania S Series Trucks

If you fancy an S-Series, but don’t have the budget, think about checking out the older Scania R-Series trucks.

Scania Comes out Top with New S Series 540 S

The Germans don’t mess about.  They like to do things properly – whether making cars or trucks or, indeed, testing them, no stone is left unturned. So, when German trade magazines did their 1000 point test, nobody would be surprised to see an MAN or Mercedes truck come out on top. However, the Swedish-built Scania S Series took the top awards. OK, Scania is now owned by German automotive group Volkswagen through their Traton subsidiary, but the results are still impressive. The trucks are driven more than 300 km on different types of public roads The two comparison tests took…

Problems with the Overhead Lines!

How many times has a poor station announcer had to tell waiting passengers that there is an issue with the overhead lines on the UK’s otherwise excellent rail network?   Plenty. We even hear it on the travel news on the radio when the subsequent delays are significant enough. They can’t suffer from the same issues on the German rail network, not only because there are never any delays, but also because they are considering overhead power lines for their motorway network. Yes, really. Scania's eHighway Truck seen at Germany's IAA in 2018 The Trials Since early July, the first…

Got A Problem with your Scania?

The more complex the trucks on our roads become, the more difficult it becomes to diagnose issues with them immediately.  In the old days, when something broke, it looked broken and could be repaired or replaced. With software systems carrying out a lot of the heavy lifting on a modern truck, there is not always an obvious solution in the workshop manual as the systems interact with each other – one small issue in one part of a system could impact a totally different area. To help their workshop network to benefit from all the tricks and fixes regarding these…
