MERCEDES & TITAN IN THE UK

Mercedes had a limited presence in the UK heavy haulage until about 2002/3. Before this, they introduced a small range of 6x2 and 6x4 tractor-units in the early 1990s, based on the well-established SK range covering the 80 to 150 tonnes weight range, with a restricted specification. Their very heavy-duty range was produced in conjunction with specialist converter Titan Spezialfahrzeugbau GmbH. It was not generally available via the Mercedes dealer network in the UK – but was proving to be very popular in mainland Europe and beyond. Forward-looking operators Sunter Brothers Ltd, imported a pair of new Titan tractors back in the late 70s; other used models found their way to this country over the years.
