Any idea about prices? Bus manufacturers are not transparent about pricing at all, so difficult to find prices

Nothing mentioned. Besides, I covered Scania on the second day, which had business hours. That meant lots of visitors. I got someone to guide me with the bus, but had to figure my way myself with the trucks.

That big box you see is called a "ballast". The box is all about weight and it's there to aide traction especially when pulling long heavy oversized trailer loads. If this "weight" box wasn't there, there won't be enough traction to pull (just wheel spin) and in extreme cases the nose of the cabin may go skyward.
