We're meant to be getting a eurocargo + daily this morning for a week or so. seen a couple before at skippers, but keen to have a drive. from what ive seen of one so far, i concur with pretty much everything John said about it.Just had a lend of this for a few days to check it out.
the cab is quite small. but IMO that would be good for squeezing thru bush tracks, as its fairly narrow (with flared mudguards) and tapers quite alot to the top corners. that is, as opposed to the current MAN TGM cabs that are roughly
square on every plane, and full width of the truck.. looks good with a big bus body or MH on the back, but sucks for bush work.
makes sense because the 395's it runs are 'G' speed rated, or 90km/h. but, (Im sure Charlie Aarons would know more details on this) in USA michelin gave approval to that tyre on a lesser weight rating to do 70mph, for the U500 mogs and several US tactical military trucks. ill see if i can dig up the page...90kph speed limited on the XZL's,
here it is
8500kg per axle rating, so not quite the 9t it would need. but should be able to comprimise enought to get 100-105 out of it i would have thought? just that 90km on the highway would suck soo bad..
