A member of Scania’s R-Series family since its introduction for Euro 5 back in 2009 the 440 was the first time we saw Scania’s DC13 EGR engine (which was also available as a 400 and 480hp version.)
Rated at 440 HP, 2012 saw the R440 get an optional EGR or SCR operation for Euro 6.
Post-2009 models will have received the facelift – noticeable by the grille and dashboard and lost the ‘third’ pedal (namely the clutch) – you will see details of ‘2-pedal Opticruise’ in certain adverts. Prior to this time, the driver needed the clutch to start and stop with the automated Opticruise gearbox.
The cabs available for the R440 in order of size are the low, normal, Highline and Topline. Obviously the drivers would all want a Topline, but these are not always practical depending on duty cycle.
There are plenty of Scania R440 trucks for sale at Truckpages. These are almost all tractor units with hardly any rigid trucks.
