AdBlue capacity on each model was 75 litres. Why the Italians might need or want more muscle than their continental counterparts is anyone’s guess, but in any appraisal of European power demands it’s difficult to imagine any operational reason for such gargantuan grunt in mainstream trucking, particularly when the great majority of Europe’s linehaul truck traffic is limited to around 40 tonnes and 80 or 90 km/h. Power Torque is uniquely positioned in the truck industry as a bold and brave voice showcasing the latest technology and raising issues that are important for drivers, owner operators, fleets and the industry as a whole. But that’s obviously not the case in Australia. Meanwhile, whereas all Scania V8 engines use an SCR emissions system to comply with Euro 5 standards, Scania says the 730 version ‘… is already pre-configured to cope with Euro 6.’ So far there’s no introductory date for Euro 6 in Australia but for its part, Scania’s biggest banger is at least prepared. For now it’s all speculation but in the lull before the next inevitable surge toward what some might see as horsepower heaven, it’s probably worth pondering the factors driving this distinctly continental contest for power supremacy. Power Torque is a registered trademark of Prime Creative Media. Not long after, Volvo took back the title with the release of the FH16 750, which produced 750 horsepower. “We won’t do business at the expense of profit,” he insists. With the latest Scania XPI fuel injection system and a host of other innovations, the new engine raises the bar for heavy truck productivity. The acceleration is fantastic and th… After a 95 km loop returning to Broadford, it was time to repeat the loop behind the wheel of the R560 before moving back into the flagship 730 for the run back to Scania’s head office. The choice, of course, belongs to the individual but as in most things, there is a cost for shopping at the top of the tree. key requirements for a heavy haulage tractor unit are high levels of engine power and torque, combined with an effective transmission. Torque: 3500 Nm (2581 lbf. The Scania R730. © Valve Corporation. And the Scania R730, the newest member of this top-of-the-line range, is the most powerful truck in the world. In all V8 versions though, piston stroke length is unchanged at 154 mm. Still, the roadtrain realm is far from being the only potential taker of the R730 and it was a confident McCarthy who asserted, “Australia generally is a user of high horsepower trucks and it’s a bonus to have the world’s most powerful truck in your range. But it’s certainly my intention to be still here in three years time. Words and Photography by Howard Shanks. Then, among a swathe of new or redesigned components attached to this reconstituted hardware were the advanced XPI ultra-high pressure common-rail fuel injection system jointly developed with Cummins, a variable geometry turbocharger, a beefed up Opticruise two-pedal automated transmission, and critically, a substantially bigger radiator and intercooler package. About Power Torque. Nor does he accept that Scania’s commitment to the Australian market is of a lesser ilk.

What’s more, in almost every market where they compete, Scania and Volvo are head-to-head combatants on a daily basis, with just fractions of a percent point often separating their places on the sales charts of many countries. Scania has taken the leading edge in performance and that’s something we intend to fully promote.” And promote it will as the R730 fronts a Scania roadshow currently demonstrating to truck operators from Brisbane to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and most regional centres in between. Power Torque is uniquely positioned in the truck industry as a bold and brave voice showcasing the latest technology and raising issues that are important for drivers, owner operators, fleets and the industry as a whole. This is the DC16 of 16,400 cc and 730 hp at 1,900 laps. However, if history is anything to go by, it’s only a matter of time before Volvo hits back with something even bigger … 750 perhaps, or will it go for broke and jump straight to 800 hp? In 2006 Scania launched a new generation of gearboxes in which the Opticruise – an automated manual – and an updated Scania Retarder were completely integrated. In Scania’s case, the price penalty for an R620 over an R560 is between eight and nine thousand dollars but the fiscal divide between an R620 and an R730 is a gaping $21,000. The Scania only gives you peak torque in the top two gears of the Opticruise gearbox.

The power race had, in effect, simply slowed for awhile as Scania considered its options before eventually changing the bent eight’s metal structure to the lighter, stronger composition of compacted graphite iron, or CGI, and reaming the block out to 16.4 litres. Power: 537 kW (730 h.p.) So back to the original question, what drives the development of such potent power and torque peaks? As for the actual driving ‘roster’, mine started in the R730 at Scania’s Campbellfield headquarters, heading up the ‘old’ Hume Highway through Wallan, over the historic Pretty Sally climb and on through Kilmore before turning off to Puckapunyal and down to Broadford for a change into the R620. © Scania’s mine-specification R 730 shows its ability at 200 tonnes Scania DC16 730 16.4 Litre 90˚ V8 Power - 730hp (537kW) @ 1900rpm Torque - 3500 Nm (2581ft/lb) ...

This engine is not simply an “opened up” version of the 15-litre engine used in the lower horsepower models, and uses some different technology to produce its massive … After the high profile debut of its 730 hp mountain muncher at this year’s Brisbane Truck Show, Scania Australia certainly hasn’t been slow in putting the truck’s awesome outputs on the road. It produces 730hp, hence making it the most powerful truck across the globe as well as a torque rating of 3.500N. Arguably more important to Roger McCarthy, however, is the fact that the R730 adds another dimension to a Scania product range which has expanded considerably under his leadership, all aimed at being more things to more people and in the process reaching a higher level of market penetration which he firmly believes is entirely achievable. 2011 Scania R730. As for the mile munchin’ attributes of the R730, well it was quite literally awesome, holding gears on grades where its two siblings – neither of them wimps when it comes to pulling power – would kick down one or two slots, and generally doing the job with what could only be described as ridiculous, even belligerent, ease. “That’ll depend on market demand.”. Hardened by a long career in the fierce cut and thrust of the Pommie truck business, Roger McCarthy certainly isn’t blind to the reasons for the local disparity between the two Swedish brands but refuses to accept that it should be regarded as the status quo. Performance does indeed have a price. With a GCM of 225 tonnes, the Scania R730 in this configuration is certainly capable of impressive performance, especially considering the power and torque outputs of the Super Quad units are identical to those of the R730 used for line haul elsewhere in the country. Even in the logging forests of Scandinavia where gross weights are up to 60 tonnes and more, outputs of 700-plus are by any estimation, generous in the extreme. Stopping power comes from electronically mastered disc brakes aided by Scania’s highly effective multi-stage hydraulic retarder while the only dimensional difference between the demo units was a 3800 mm wheelbase on the R730 compared to 3600 mm on the R560 and R620. “Those agreements are part of a global service initiative by Scania,” he explains, “with the aim to be a total service solutions provider.”, Increased truck sales are, however, the prime objective and according to a resolute Roger McCarthy, “Our goal over the next three years or so is to progressively grow Scania’s stake in the truck market to five percent and onwards to seven and eight percent. Power Torque is Australia’s premier truck and trailer magazine. Before the 610’s arrival, Scania had held top billing with a 580 hp version of its gutsy 15.6 litre V8, but it’s also worth noting that around the same time Volvo Trucks Australia had engineered a 600 hp Cummins Signature engine into its cab-over FH and the now defunct NH conventional. McCarthy agrees it’s a significant price penalty but adds there are already buyers with their hands up for a 730. The V8 engines which respect the Euro 5 norms offers five different power outputs between 500 and 730 hp. In fact, between 2003 and 2009 the total number of trucks sold in Europe with over 550 hp averaged just 1.76 percent of the total new truck market, with the biggest market by far being in Italy.’. at 1900 rev/min *Max. Scania R730 Or will one of the German giants, MAN or Mercedes-Benz, or perhaps Iveco blow the Swedes out of the water with a sudden burst of heavyweight hormones?

The retarder’s braking torque grew from 3000 to 3500Nm and the braking power at low revs had increased by 40 per cent, creating a drastic improvement at low speeds. However, the 3,500Nm of torque could be most felt once it was cruising on the highway at 95-100km/h. “We’re well aware of what needs to be done,” he commented, adding that gross weight capacities far greater than 90 tonnes are obviously on the agenda. Scania on the other hand relies on fully imported units sold and serviced primarily through 10 company-owned stores and just one independent outlet on the NSW north coast. document.write(new Date().getFullYear()); Whatever the merit and findings of an evaluation such as this, many will no doubt suggest that 730 horsepower and almost 2600 lb ft of torque are essentially the premise of roadtrains and other heavy-duty toil, with any lesser workloads constituting a distinct case of overkill. “The fact that the engine is making 500 horsepower down as low at 1000 RPM where it begins making its peak torque was one factor that ticked a box for me. For instance, and remembering that each unit was running at much the same weight, fitted with the same driveline spec and in my case allowed to run in full auto mode, the R560’s peak outputs of 412 kW (560 hp) and 2700 Nm (1991 lb ft) made predictably light work of the leg, with the on-board computer recording an average speed of 69 km/h and fuel consumption of 1.51 km/litre (4.27 mpg) on the 95 km loop. Scania’s V8 engine is offered in outputs from 500 hp. Scania R730 This award-winning Scania model from the R-series range is, without a doubt, one of the best trucks on the market that you need to consider. But the satisfaction of holding trucking’s top testosterone title was short-lived: Volvo in 2006 hit back with a 660 model boasting 3100 Nm (2286 lb ft) of torque. Lemgo, Germany. It’s also worth mentioning that on the 364 km round trip to and from Campbellfield, with several different drivers having stints behind the wheel and including the climb over Pretty Sally where the R730 dropped just four gears, the truck returned the same fuel figure of 1.4 km/litre. With its own engineering and assembly operation in Brisbane, an expansive product portfolio and a formidable dealer network of both company-owned and experienced independent outlets, Volvo is one of this market’s most prominent players and at the end of the first half of this year held 10.6 percent of the heavy-duty sector. Yet as Brian Weatherley intimated in his report last year, those factors certainly don’t include rocketing sales volumes or strong customer demand. Power Scania R730 V8 – 730 horsepower, and torque of the tractor is equal to 3 500N.M. Armed with a healthy dose of parochialism, it’s easy to assert that unlike Europe, Australia is actually one of the few markets in the world able to realistically apply and even justify such high power and torque outputs as those offered by both Volvo’s FH16 700 and more recently, Scania’s R730. Engine With a Top Power of 770hp Released. Diagnosis and troubleshooting using Scania EMS Display is described in the Operator’s Manual for Scania EMS Instrumentation. document.write(new Date().getFullYear()); 2.

This gearbox offers similar advantages, together with an extra crawler ratio. Scania then went quiet for several years and with no new big banger emerging from its ranks since the 620 rating in ‘05, the ‘other Swede’ appeared to be in no rush to re-enter the horsepower race. Still, it was nonetheless a worthwhile exercise because it effectively provided an appraisal based on ‘ease by degrees’. Power Scania R730 V8 – 730 horsepower, and torque of the tractor is equal to 3 500N.M. “Perhaps Scania’s goals and objectives weren’t as determined in the past as they are today,” he says bluntly, adding that the gradual expansion of the product range into carefully targeted niche applications and subsequent increases in the customer base are cause for considerable confidence.

As our erudite European correspondent Brian Weatherley has remarked more than once, it can be sometimes difficult to fathom the fervour that sees Sweden’s giant powerhouses constantly leapfrogging each other in the seemingly ceaseless – some might even say senseless – contest for the world’s most powerful production truck. Those targets are fully achievable but I’ll stress again that volumes won’t be increased at the expense of profitability.”. “Let’s face it, I’m simply a resource and as such I can be asked to work anywhere. “On paper the R730 Scania had some impressive features,” Tony recalled. For the record, roadworks restricted the 730’s average speed on the 95 km loop to just 70 km/h while fuel consumption was recorded at 1.4 km/litre, or 3.95 mpg. About the torque aspect, the Scania R730 has a massive 3,500Nm standing, nicely above the Over's already healthy 3,150. Needless to say that the 730 hp unit is among the quickest from the market and its even superior to the Volvo FH16 which can develop 750 hp. the abnormal load industry’s heavy, and super-heavy haulers, need horsepower and torque.

An interesting option for some applications is Scania’s 13-litre inline six-cylinder engine with up to 2,500 Nm and 480 hp, an engine renowned for its high torque-to-power ratio. Indeed, when Volvo in January 2009 broke new ground with the launch of the FH16 700, many European pundits were wondering if Scania’s apparent apathy was in fact evidence that 620 hp was the limit of the long-serving V8’s power potential.
