Ideal for Middle Eastern Mercedes-Benz Zetros 2733 A in operation as luxurious hunting and vehicle


25.03.2011 / Stuttgart – Ulan – Abu Dhabi /

The first time I saw the Benz Zetros was at the outstanding Benz stand during the 2010 IAA Nutzfahrzeuge Motor for Commercial Vehicles.

I thought it not take too long until Benz 6×6 customized mobile home superstructures arrive to Saudi Arabia, the Arab Emirates or Qatar. But I was wrong: They were to two proud Mongolian owners in the Ulan Bator which use them for hunting and for outdoor excursions.

So, why did the two Mongolian gentlemen the Mercedes Zetros instead of any model?

Well, the all-wheel Mercedes-Benz Zetros is in its element all-terrain capabilities and a high are required.

Mainly because cab-behind-engine model for difficult conditions is not only suitable as a vehicle, but also because it is suitable as a basis for recreational and vehicles.

This is now demonstrated by two Zetros 6×6 with bodies and interior fittings have recently been to Ulan-Bator, the capital of Mongolia.

love their freedom, and enjoy excursions into the natural surroundings of their homeland. Whereas only the was once a suitable means of for this purpose, two bus

inessmen in Ulan-Bator – one of them owns a where beer is brewed to a recipe, while the other wealthy as a shareholder in coal and mines – decided in favour of the as a more modern and luxurious way of the terrain. The two friends use their jumbo off-roaders for multi-day into the Altai mountains, for where they hunt for with an eagle.

Chassis load capacity of 16

As a three-axle truck with a gross vehicle weight of 25 – up to 27 tonnes for export – the Zetros has a (chassis load capacity body) or around 16 tonnes. The and chassis of the Zetros are based on the and Axor series. It was developed at the plant, where it is also All variants of the Zetros are powered by the OM 926 LA 6-cylinder in-line engine an output of 240 kW (326 hp) and an impressive torque of 1300 Nm from to 1600 rpm.

A choice of two is available: the standard unit is the shifted

At 1.690 the off-road is a good 20 percent lower in the Actros and Axor all-wheel models (which have an ratio of 1.403). This extremely slow speeds an important attribute e.g. on steep downhill stretches. power is increased by around 70 compared to the on-road gears. distribution between the front and axle(s) is 1:3.21 in the splitter and 1:1 if the differential lock is engaged.

Three mechanical differential as standard:

The Zetros is equipped three mechanical differential as standard, and these can be easily by the driver using a rotary This rotary control the logical sequence in which the should be engaged as the terrain more difficult: first then inter-wheel at the rear and inter-wheel at the front.

Considering the attributes of this all-wheel cab-behind-engine vehicle, it is no wonder the Zetros series has met with interest from the energy sector, exploration and fire/emergency It combines outstanding all-terrain with equally excellent ride comfort, and these also convince private looking for a base vehicle which to undertake longer off the beaten track.

Accordingly two of the Mercedes-Benz Zetros have converted into hunting and vehicles according to customer

In each case the base was the Mercedes-Benz Zetros 2733 A 6×6 drive (wheelbase mm) and the standard cab.

The reversing camera is to activate additional spotlights at the for safe manoeuvring at night. An operating range in remote is provided by diesel tanks 300 and 200 litres.

In addition to difficult conditions, the body and interior work had to take into the very special climatic in the desert, where the vehicles are to be Extreme temperature fluctuations particularly good insulation, and all the features were planned and to ensure that they are to withstand the punishing conditions of operations. The furniture was specially for use in tropical and desert regions.
