7 Most Popular European Trucks in Indonesia
United Tractors, Jakarta – Trucks in Indonesia are diverse in terms of shape, size, and function. If you are traveling, you may have seen large trucks with Toyota, Mitsubishi, and other brands. These are Japanese trucks. But, in Indonesia, there are not only Japanese trucks. There are also European trucks that operate in Indonesia.
In Indonesia itself, the use of European trucks for various needs is also easy to find. The prestige of European trucks is not inferior to Japanese trucks in Indonesia. In fact, many business people claim that the use of European trucks tends to be more efficient and able to complete project works with large capacities.
What is a European Truck?
Still don’t know what a European truck is? To know more about European trucks, let’s understand by distinguishing European trucks from trucks produced by other countries. As the name implies, European trucks are trucks produced by countries in Europe. Some countries in the world do produce trucks such as Japan and America.
What distinguishes trucks from each country is their design, capacity, and features. What you find in a European truck may not necessarily be found in a Japanese or American truck. Nonetheless, trucks from any country are capable of helping you with your work.
To easily distinguish which trucks are Japanese, American, or European, you can look at their design. Like most vehicles, the cab of an American truck is positioned behind the engine. So, the hood is visible at the front when traveling.
Unlike the European truck design, which adheres to “cab over engine” or in other words “engine under the cab”. European truck drivers will not see the hood while driving the truck, as they sit right under the engine.
In terms of features, European trucks have more complete features compared to Japanese trucks. Many drivers say that driving a Japanese truck is easier than driving a European truck, because there are too many features. In fact, if studied and understood deeply, the features in European trucks can actually improve the performance of trucks and workers.
Advantages of European Trucks
What business owners and truck drivers rarely know are the advantages offered by European trucks. Believe it or not, although the popularity of European trucks in Indonesia is still minimal, various business sectors that use European trucks have experienced the benefits. What are the benefits of European trucks? Here are the reviews.
- Has Euro 4 Emission Standard
The lowest emission standard in European trucks is Euro 4. Euro 4 trucks usually emit gas emissions that are more environmentally friendly. Well, the higher the level of gas emission control on a truck or other vehicle, the level of air pollution due to vehicle fumes can be minimized.
- Only Use Quality Solar Fuel
To support better environmental friendliness, the fuel used by a European Truck unit must be of high quality. The standard of fuel use for European trucks is at least quality plus Diesel Exhaust Fluid and not subsidized diesel. The use of quality fuel is not without purpose but also to maintain engine quality, increase truck power, and prevent injector damage.
- Using Air Suspension
Unlike other trucks that still use leaf springs, European trucks already use air suspension. Air suspension on European trucks has its own advantages, namely it does not damage tires quickly, is able to reduce vibration and noise, increase fuel efficiency, is suitable for transporting various loads, and even has a good selling price.
