The Mercedes-Benz Atego is a range of lightweight general-purpose rigid truck manufactured from 1997. Designated 970, it is available in weights of 7.5 to 16 tonnes and is powered by a straight four or six-cylinder engine. Originally, all straight-engined rigids by Mercedes-Benz were marketed as Atego however, from 2005 Atego models over 18 tonnes were renamed Mercedes-Benz Axor.
This Mercedes-Benz Atego horsebox is a superb vehicle and is particularly versatile. The storage area to the rear is able to accommodate two horses. The passenger area is fully equipped with soft seating area, beds, cooker, sink with granite worktops, toilet and shower facilities. There are ample storage facilities throughout and both areas are fitted with heating and air conditioning. The quality of this vehicle really does need to be seen to be fully appreciated. The 6,370cc diesel engine runs well and we are advised this livestock carrier drives with no known faults. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a test certificate valid until 27th November 2015, it should be noted that the gross weight of this vehicle is 11,990kg and therefore can only be driven with an HGV licence.
