Accept no limits – the new Zetros
Accept no limits – the new Zetros

The Zetros is a robust, highly off-road-capable truck, that has been specially developed to cope with extremely difficult conditions far from the beaten track. 

The Zetros at a glance

The classic bonnet truck was designed with the proven suspension and drive system technology of the heavy-duty truck model series from Mercedes-Benz, combined with an innovative cab design for demanding operating conditions.

With the traditional bonnet concept and the positioning of the cab behind the front axle, it is possible to achieve the greatest possible ride comfort, even on bad roads and off-road, and thus a higher transport efficiency without compromising safety.

The vehicle is particularly easy to operate and maintain with relatively few resources. The Zetros is also particularly suitable for extreme climate conditions from hot countries to the Arctic. The Zetros draws on the experience gained from thousands of vehicles in customer use, in the energy industry, the transport sector, the construction industry, open-cast mining and deserts worldwide.

Zetros Cabs

A supportive work environment: the Zetros bonnet cab.

The cab, which is positioned behind the front axle, and the suspension configuration complement each other to create an ideal working environment. 

The outstanding driving comfort of a bonnet of cab overhang makes work a lot easier for the driver and co-driver, who are familiar with the seating position from standard vehicles. 

Furthermore, balanced axle-load distribution ensures reliable handling on any surface. Besides the M-cab, the Zetros is also available with a crew cab offering seats for up to seven people.

The M-cab: extra room to stow gear.

With the cab positioned behind the front axle, the Zetros offers constructional advantages. 

The comfortable M-cab is designed to meet the needs of the driver and passenger during any type of operation. Additional space behind the seats allows for extra stowage.

The crew cab: seating for up to seven.

For tasks requiring a complete crew, the Zetros crew cab is the ideal fit. Made of steel, it is 2.5 m long and has four additional seats in the rear section, as well as doors on both sides.

The crew cab offers seating for up to seven people, including the driver. Steps lead into the cab, making access quick and easy.

These features of the crew cab make the Zetros an ideal and reliable partner e.g. in the fire fighting sector.

Zetros Chassis

An extremely mobile truck in a variety of environments, the Zetros handles different road surfaces as well as off-road terrain. Its powerful chassis components are designed to interact smoothly, ensuring fast and safe driving over varying types of ground.

Tailored to your needs: the reinforced ladder-type frame.

The Zetros is built on a straight bolted ladder-type frame, with reinforced front-end and top for special attachments. This rugged frame offers superb torsional flexibility.

Thanks to the wide range of possibilities to modify the length of wheelbase or rear overhang ex-factory provide the ideal basis for the variety of body lengths and make the body mounting process easier and quicker.

Choose from two front-axle suspension options.

The Zetros is built on a straight bolted ladder-type frame, with reinforced front-end and top for special attachments. This rugged frame offers superb torsional flexibility.

The Zetros can be equipped with 3- or 4-leaf parabolic springs for the front axle. The 3-leaf parabolic springs for the front axle are designed for a load capacity of 7.5 t. The individual spring leaves are not located directly on top of each other, but are installed with a slight gap for corrosion protection. 

The same construction is used in the 4-leaf parabolic springs for the front axle, designed for loads up to 9.0 t. Specially tuned shock absorbers are used for both parabolic spring versions.

Drum brakes offer superior protection.

Drum brakes on all axles are standard equipment for the Zetros. Their encapsulated design protects brake components and is perfect for rough terrain – grit and water cannot get inside the drum. The driver’s workload is also reduced, thanks to finely controllable, precise braking action and uniform response.

Superstructures can be bolted and fastened without drilling.

The Zetros can be optionally equipped with mounting parts which are easily connected to the hole matrix on the frame – pre-installed consoles on the longitudinal elements of the chassis frame for bolting on bodies as well as mounting plates for fastening the sides of the body frame. The Zetros is ready and waiting for your specific superstructure.
