SK Series ... What a truck, EPS then EPS-E Powerliner with Eurocab ! Awesome truck to drive, V8 sounded the best, manual transmission had Double H pattern that meant finding crawler gear was like reaching into the passenger side glovebox !!! Spent many hours, diagnosing, repairing in the Pre Actros launch days ? Had an exhaust brake that made a fab noise but that was it ...... Great to see such well preserved SK Series truck 👍

What a classic! As someone who is familiar with the SK's, I can vouch for what a good truck it is. Much more reliable than an Actros, if not as nice to operate. My old firm ran these for years with minimal downtime & the v8's seem to go on & on. The eps was weak I felt, but as with most things Mercedes, they improved it in time. Top truck & a great article....thanks!
