The unique modular principle of construction of Scania trucks allows you to create a machine for a wide variety of, even very specific jobs. However, there are cases when the customer has to contact highly specialized companies for appropriate modifications for a specific add-on.
And the German company Toni Maurer GmbH is an example of this. The other day she presented the original Scania chassis, extended from four to five axles. The 8×4 model was equipped with a rolling fifth axle. But that is not all. The cabin was carried forward and lowered to the ground.
Attention is drawn to the non-standard bumper with small “eyes”-headlights and the radiator grille with the developer’s nameplate. Judging by the protective housings of the exterior mirrors, the P series day cab was borrowed from the Scania XT models, for heavy-duty use.
Interestingly, the 6-cylinder engine is located behind the cabin, and it is not covered by anything, at least at this stage. All this colossal modification of the standard four-axle Scania chassis was needed to install a heavy-duty drilling rig.
