Mercedes-Benz trucks gives a special offer, utilising the Telligent Maintenance System
Beginning May, a special offer was made to fleet owners buying Mercedes-Benz trucks. All Actros models sold with a CharterWay contract can now include a new maintenance package utilising the Telligent Maintenance System.
“We first proved that the Mercedes-Benz Actros fitted with hypoid axles can save up to 5% in fuel…”
This integrated diagnostic and service system allows the vehicle to determine service intervals, ‘telling’ operators exactly what needs to be serviced and when, effectively putting an end to fixed service intervals.
“Lower total cost of ownership remains a top priority for Mercedes-Benz Trucks…”
“Mercedes-Benz South Africa is the first truck manufacturer to offer this product locally. Lower total cost of ownership remains a top priority for Mercedes-Benz Trucks,” says Clinton Savage, Divisional Manager.
“We first proved that the Actros fitted with the hypoid axles can save up to 5% in fuel, and now we are pleased to advise that with the effective usage of Telligent Maintenance, an additional saving of up to 14% in service costs per kilometre can be realised.”
The Telligent Maintenance System calculates service dates for engine oil change intervals, transmission oil change intervals, axle oil change intervals and general service components such as air filters, fuel filters and brake pad wear separately based on the operating conditions of the vehicle.
This ensures optimum utilisation of operating fluids and service parts without risk to the service life or reliability of the engine and driveline.
