The Freightliner Columbia 112 is an ideal truck for distribution and construction work. Able to work efficiently and reliably with whatever your work day throws at it, the Columbia is a favorite with both drivers and owners.
If searching for a truck that will maximize your payload, look no further than the CL112. The truck has a surprisingly low tare weight, achieved with its high strength aluminium cabins, and the set back front axle allows for uncompromised weight distribution. The Columbia 112 will give you great fuel economy and overall lower costs per kilometre, as well as ease of maintenance for shorter down times.
Making your drive enjoyable is the dual steering boxes for excellent feel and control. The Columbia 112 also provides a generous wheel cut, making it a breeze to maneuver when faced with a tight situation on a building site.
Choose either the Construction configuration (available as 6×4, 8×4 or 10×4) or Distribution configuration (available as 4×2 or 6×4). For construction, there’s virtually no load the Columbia can’t take care of with a GCM of up to 40,000kg.
