'Damn,' muttered Sven Waselin. At a roundabout, a few hundred metres short of the destination in Aldenhoven near Aachen, a road sign stopped the heavy load from continuing. Waselin climbed down the five steps of the new Actros SLT for loads of up to 250 tonnes. With a worried expression, he looked at the fifteen axles of his 129-tonne, 46-metre-long articulated vehicle.
A few car drivers started to pap their horn. After the road sign had been removed, Waselin got behind the wheel again. He carefully pressed the accelerator. Slowly, the Actros SLT started moving. Without one tyre losing its grip, the truck freed itself.
