Atego in construction-site transport

Quality – conceived for construction

High demands are made on the vehicle as a matter of fact in the construction business. To meet these demands and ensure a long service life for the Atego, high-quality, robust engineering is required:

  • economical, powerful BlueTEC® engines with a power output range of 115 kW to 210 kW and above-average service life
  • three different 6-speed transmissions and the 9-speed direct-drive transmission: precisely aligned with engine output to protect components and ensure a long service life
  • robust, single-reduction hypoid rear axles withstand high loads and ensure smooth and quiet operation
  • effective corrosion protection thanks to cathodic dip priming. When attaching bodies and other equipment, the frame’s pre-drilled holes eliminate the need for further drilling, which could damage corrosion protection
  • highly stable vehicle frame boasting an optimum ratio between load capacity and unladen weight
  • optional engine start/stop system, which automatically switches the engine off and on when traffic isn’t flowing, e.g. on narrow construction sites
  • optional drive/brake speed control ensures an almost constant speed, which reduces the driver’s workload and saves on fuel
  • available as an option: front underride guard for the safety of other road users; anti-spray elements in the wings minimise spray formation on wet roads; and steel protective grilles for headlamps and tail lights
