Scania tractor units are a good choice on the used truck market, because this firm is well known for making machines that can go the distance and endure the tests and trials thrown up on the open road for mile after mile.
Being able to couple a range of bodies and trailers to one of its powerful vehicles is an advantage for a variety of reasons. And from modern R Series models to legacy units which still have plenty of life left in them from the 3 series and 4 series ranges, a well-looked-after Scania truck can make a name for itself within any organisation that needs to make long-distance haulage a less arduous task for drivers to undertake.
The company prides itself on offering better value for money than its competitors, which means that more equipment and performance potential can often be found on board one of its tractor units than would be available elsewhere.

Most Scania tractor units feature spacious cabs that come with benefits such as cruise control and other driver-assist features, as well as things like air conditioning, electric windows and a cavalcade of superior equipment to ensure safety and comfort are a top priority.
Sleeper cabs are common for units of this type, so you may be able to find models with optional extras that make overnight stays and long-haul trips easier to manage, including integrated microwaves, wash facilities and more besides. Older 4 Series models can also come with this kind of kit, so even if your budget is too limited to make recent models an option, you do not need to compromise on driver convenience and satisfaction levels.
The R Series is by far the most popular and readily available of the Scania tractor units on the used market, featuring 4x2 and 6x2 models along with integrated features such as stabilisation elements, hydraulic tipping mechanisms and more across the diverse range of models. Air suspension is found on some models in the R Series to reduce road rumble and driver fatigue in one fell swoop. Euro IV compliant engines with manual gearboxes offer fuel economy and good control over the momentum of the vehicle. And because Scania handles the majority of the engineering in-house, its tractor units have a very cohesive, solid feeling that is reassuring from the perspective of long-term reliability.
For buyers of used Scania tractor units it is important to check over components which undergo the most wear and tear and are thus most likely to be in need of regular maintenance and replacement. This includes things such as the tyres, brakes and suspension, the latter of which can be complicated if an air or hydraulic system is present. Cost management is key to making a good investment in a used vehicle of this kind, and the asking price and day-to-day running costs must be assessed alongside the price of repairs, as well as at what point any maintenance will become necessary. Scania’s reliable engineering is a good starting point, but ultimately you have to look carefully at the history of individual vehicles to get the right information.
