Jed,
This is what you want for the MAN easy to remove as well just normal twist locks.
I believe they made some of the LAK bodies in composite material so should be reasonably light weight.
You might then be able to get the truck down rated to 7.5t.

Nice info David, cheers. Mine is the long wheel base too so I have an extra meter on the back, could work well for spare wheels or motor bike :wink:

I had this message from an old mate of mine who drives big trucks,

"As far as I know you should be OK driving this on your car licence.
The 8000 kg relates to the design weights and maximum axle weights it's capable of handling, not necessarily the weight it will be registered with (probably 7500 kg).
Most HGV's are registered with a lesser weight than they are actually designed for.
It should be written on the V5 (or Dutch equivalent) , 7500 kg is the European norm, then the next weight up is 13000 kg.
Hope that helps ?"


Sounds promising.

I can't see the door badge on my phone but it looks like an 8-150?
It can be driven on a car licence.
The recovery agent next to where I used to work used to have two of them one being an older 8-136, the 8 I'm sure stood for 8000 gvw and 136 or 150 was horsepower.
At the time these were the only trucks the apprentices could drive before they got an hgv.

The Russians know how to produce vehicles for extreme conditions.
Would not want to change a tire though

I like where you are going,
but heres more style, better ground clearance, and you get to issue your own tax discs!
