Mercedes-Benz Genuine Parts: top quality for construction vehicles
Vehicles in the construction industry and ancillary trades have to be top performers: predominantly on the road, but also in off-road operation. In order to do this the vehicles must be kept in a technically reliable condition. This is best achieved with Mercedes-Benz Genuine Parts.
Mercedes-Benz Genuine Parts have been perfectly aligned to the individual trucks. They are produced in accordance with precisely defined manufacturer specifications, tested on an ongoing basis and continuously updated to the current state of the art with regard to their features. As a result they contribute significantly to the vehicle's favourable total cost of ownership and ensure minimal downtime. The extensive range of parts and efficient logistics with fast availability are additional benefits. And last but not least, it is only the use of high-quality Genuine Parts that ensures that the explicit and implied warranty is maintained. At Bauma 2016 Mercedes-Benz is using three Genuine Parts to demonstrate the product advantages: In daily use on the construction site permanently optimum braking performance is essential. Mercedes-Benz genuine brake linings ensure even heat distribution thanks to their optimum friction pairing between the brake disc and brake lining and thus reduce the risk of having to exchange brake discs due to tears before the end of their lifetime.
Mercedes-Benz genuine air bellows make an important contribution to safety and comfort. Alongside optimum cushioning they minimise the risk of tipping, in particular also in very inhospitable terrain, ensure maximum stability of the vehicle and enable the cargo to be transported safely.
Mercedes-Benz genuine air filters made of flame-retardant material achieve a separation degree of up to 99.95 percent and thus protect the engine against wear through dirt particles in the air, especially on dusty construction sites. Through the good filter performance the air-mass sensor remains free of dirt and keeps fuel consumption low.
Mercedes-Benz Genuine Accessories: for the highest standards
The genuine accessories from Mercedes-Benz offer a multitude of individual truck styling and protection options for applications in construction transport. At the Daimler stand in Hall B4 Mercedes-Benz is exhibiting chrome louvres and roof lamp brackets on an Actros 4163 LS as well as a reversing camera system, side window wind deflectors and a shield panel for the exhaust box.
The exhibited Actros 4163 LS as a semi-heavy haulage vehicle is fitted with a roof lamp bracket with four additional headlights and chrome louvres in a special 3D look on the ornamental grille. The four work lights on the roof lamp bracket put every construction site in the right light and thanks to the fact that they are produced from robust, high-gloss polished stainless steel they brave inclement weather conditions. The roof lamp bracket is available in different variants for all Arocs, Actros and Atego cabs.
The reversing camera system, which is available from the Mercedes-Benz Genuine Accessories range for all models, offers safety when manoeuvring. The system is automatically activated when engaging reverse gear, makes the area behind the vehicle visible and thus facilitates precise reversing and manoeuvring. On request the reversing camera system shows lateral lines so that the distance can be gauged better. The high product quality is based on a water-resistant camera housing and integral heating to prevent the camera lens from icing up.
The side window wind deflector from Mercedes-Benz Genuine Accessories protects against airflow and against wind noise in the cab thanks to its exact fit. It has a custom-fit aperture for the kerb-sight mirror on the co-driver's side and is available as a set in two variants: tinted or clear.
In harsh construction site applications or on vehicles with clearance for crane support feet, soiling of the electronic components on the exhaust box can occur, restricting the service life. With immediate effect Mercedes-Benz Genuine Accessories is offering favourably priced retrofitting with a shield panel on the front of the exhaust box for the OM 47x engines, in order to reduce this soiling effectively and thus extend the life of the exhaust box.
