18 Tonne Trucks for Sale (178)

The trucks on these pages are all 18 tonners – that is to say 4×2 rigids with a variety of body types.

18,000kgs (18 tonnes) is the maximum gross vehicle weight possible using a two-axle truck. This is because the rear, drive axle can take a maximum of 10 tonnes and the front, steer axle 8 tonnes.

For operators requiring greater payloads from a rigid truck can increase this through the addition of an extra axle, (giving a 6×2 configuration) which can add a further 8 tonnes payload. Operating at less than 26 and more than 18 tonnes GVW is less efficient, so trucks running at 22 tonnes, for example, are very rare.

More About 18 Tonne Trucks

Typical Uses for 18 tonners

these trucks are very popular for distribution operations. They are lighter and easier to manoeuvre than a 26 tonner as there is less ribber in contact with the ground when turning.

Modern 18 tonners handle with a car-like feel when sitting behind the wheel – despite the fact that is could be fitted with a 30ft body of any description.

So, expect to see many 18-tonne box vans and 18 tonne curtainsiders in the Truckpages listings.  You will find fewer examples of 18 tonne tippers, as operators prefer running a minimum of a 6×4 at 26 tonnes, but ideally an 8×4 at 32 tonnes GVW.

The Arocs was bodied by Stock Sweepers, of Cinderford, Gloucestershire, which fitted its S8400 dual and simultaneous sweeping equipment The 18-tonne Arocs road sweeper is now working alongside the Bradford-based operator’s other sweeper, which is based on a 15-tonne Atego chassis.
