Axle configuration

Scania tractors are available in different axle configurations and are therefore suitable for every situation. Most companies choose a 4x2 configuration, but depending on the type (and weight) of the transport, a 4x4, 6x2, 6x4, 6x6, 8x4 and 10x4 may be required. For heavy transport, more axles are needed to distribute the load. BAS World always has different Scania configurations in stock.

King of the road

Scania is known for its famous V8 engines. Through a combination of the sensation of power and the unmistakable sound, drivers feel like the ‘king of the road’. When this engine was introduced in 1960, it was the strongest diesel in Europe. Over the years, the engine has undergone various developments as a result of strict environmental standards. Driving a Scania V8 is a dream of many (young) drivers.
