like i said the 44.502 you see in the picture has a TORQUE CONVERTER !
it is a speacial order truck from MAN . hte specs you looking up from the internet is not of this one but of a standard one .
this kind of prime mover is in the region of 300000 euros plus .

speed is irrelevant . this truck with full counterweight can go upto 120 kmh. no trailer ofcourse . with a trailer it would never be allowedto go over 20 kmph because of indian roads .

if you really are interested in really powerful primovers pls look up nicolas tractomas . they are made to order in france by nicolas . available as 10x10 ,1000 hp . one might be comin to india soon ;-)
I've no argument that I'm the last person in this subject..I'm just a student, I've no acadamic qualification..what ever I say here is just what I learnt from books, websites & some information got directly from the manufaturers..Its happy to know that U r a learnt person in this subject.

But I'm aware of trucks like Nicolas-Tractomas..buttey all are very very special..only countable numbers are made a year..where as Merc, MAN, etc, cosiderably make bigger volume..Considering other truks, trucks like N-Tractomas, special trucks of Oshkosh, Westernstar, etc are like dumb truck among the tippers..But MAN & Merc too have such huge engines rating an output of 1000 & + hp..

After looking at the truck in detail I realized the complexity in building that monster....if you look carefully, the truck is turning right, but the last few wheels are turning left.... a brain like mine could have never thought of that aspect, without seeing the pic....

Imagine misjudging the distance of the truck while overtaking....thats dangerous....

Look at the size of the weight bearing down on the tractor's two driving axles. But for this weight, the driving tires would lose traction while hauling (and most certainly while starting) the trailer payload.

BTW, Did anybody snap a pic of the trailer-truck hauling the ex-Sahara Airlines Boeing 737 [VT-SID] fuselage? -- the one that got stuck in Chembur last week?
What kind was it?

AFAIK, it was a plane jane Ashok Leyland trailer truck. The windshield and the roof of the driver cabin was chopped off to make more room.....

Jeep hurricane concept has rear wheels turning in opposite direction, or even in same direction for sharp navigation, especially off road.

heck it's even supposed to turn around maintaining the same location. (each wheel in a different direction.
