BUSINESS CLASS M2 106


SportChassis M2 106 P2

The all-around performer.

The Business Class M2 106 is the true utility player of the family, offering the perfect platform for a variety of applications.

READY TO TAKE ON HEAVY-DUTY ASSIGNMENTS.


SportChassis
M2 112 RHA112

GVWR rated up to 80,000 pounds, the Business Class M2 112 is the truck for the most demanding situations. SportChassis limits the GVWR rating to 40,000 pounds. It comes standard with a powerful Detroit Diesel DD13 Engine, with horsepower ratings from 350-450 hp and up to 1,650 ft-lbs torque. All that power paired with the heavy duty Allison 4000 TRV 6 Speed automatic.

The Business Class M2 112 (like the 106) has a lightweight aluminum cab that maximizes payload and resist corrosion. Freightliner's AirLiner rear suspension rated up to 52,000 pounds - this truck delivers a smooth, even ride under the most demanding conditions. In fact, with frames of up to 3.7 million RBM (see definition below) and 1,500 square-inch radiators, the Business Class M2 112 can tackle the toughest jobs.


Freightliner's AirLiner Air Suspension

Resisting Bending Moment (moments are force, or weight, multiplied by distance)
 describes the ability of the frame to resist the moments from the load and truck components; section modulus describes the shape of the material; and yield strength describes the material strength. The RBM is the product of the section modulus (SM) and the yield strength (YS) in inch-pounds and is a measure of the capability of the frame rail. Some manufacturers of equipment such as cranes specify either a section modulus or RBM for the chassis frame. Chassis manufacturers supply frame information with RBM, section modulus, and yield strength in truck data books and body builders books.
So, RBM = SM × YS.

“Why is that important?” you ask. It describes the maximum load the manufacturer says we can put on the frame in moments.

 
POWERED FOR SERIOUS PERFORMANCE.

The Business Class M2 may look stylish on the outside, but underneath it's pure productivity. A broad range of engine and transmission choices allows the buyer to select the optimum combination to match virtually any business application.

Optimized performance under the hood and on the road.

Since 1978, many different exhaust systems in Europe have incorporated SCR technology. Based on environmental advantages and payback to owners in less maintenance, increased fuel economy, better reliability and more uptime, it's clearly been proven the best EPA 2010 choice. Even so, Freightliner and the majority of the vocational trucking industry didn't take the decision to go with SCR lightly. We've driven more the 2 million customer miles under real-world freight hauling conditions.

Different DEF Tanks

For ease of filling and increase of fill interval to standard maintenance intervals, Freightliner offers 6-, 13- and 23 gallon DEF Tanks. SportChassis utilizes the 13 gallon tank.



The DEF gauge is integrated into the diesel fuel gauge (top right of pic).

The gauge indicates the level of DEF in the tank and has a series of alerts when the tank is running low. A driver who ignores their DEF low level warnings will see de-rates and restrictions on the their vehicle, but will never be stranded.

 FAST FACTS ABOUT DEF

 

  • DEF is non-toxic, biodegradable and non-flammable.
  • Urea, a component of DEF, is a mild substance used in skin softening dish soap, tooth whitening formulas and as a pretzel browning agent.
  • DEF has a shelf life of up to 18 months.
  • DEF begins to freeze at 12* Fahrenheit.
  • Start up and normal operation of vehicle is not inhibited if DEF freezes.
  • The SCR system is designed to thaw DEF if it freezes.
  • DEF is not damaged when frozen and is fully usable when thawed.
  • If exposed to temperatures above 85*F for extended periods of time, DEF becomes less concentrated; it will still work in the SCR system, but may be consumed more rapidly than normal.
  • If an improper fluid is placed in the DEF tank, shut down the engine immediately and contact your local service center.

Efficient placement of wiring and pneumatic lines.

Electrical, pneumatic and fuel lines are neatly organized inside the left-hand rail for most applications. This relieves congestion at the back of cab, making access easier for body builders and service technicians.

Wiring connectors eliminate splicing.

To assist body builders (SportChassis), Freightliner has pre-engineered standard interfaces for engine wiring and lighting. Vehicle Interface Wiring Connectors eliminate the need for splicing and provide an easy 'plug and play' point for body builders to connect to such things as brake lights, turn signals and tails lights. Interface connectors for the engine and transmission allow clean connections at convenient locations on the chassis for feature activation: no need to wire directly to engine or transmission control modules. The in-cab power net distribution block, available for body builder expansion, provides fused power for body controllers.

Adding switches is easy.

The Smart Switch system enables switches in the cab interior to be easily added or interchanged without removing the dashboard. Programming can be configured for specific vocational truck, such as utility vehicles, trailer haulers, emergency vehicles and street sweepers.

A cab that works with the driver.

The Business Class M2 has an aerodynamic aluminum cab with a steel reinforced front wall, making it strong, lightweight and rust resistant. Every aspect of the cab was designed to make the driver's job less of a job, leading to increased productivity.

To reduce fatigue for drivers who make frequent stops, the cab features a low step-in height with slip-resistant dual steps, a large door opening and strategically placed exterior and interior grab handles. For safety, the cab's hood slopes downward for better line-of-sight, and a 2,500 sq. in. windshield provides excellent visibility for spotting potential hazards. Optional down-view mirrors and an optional lower window in the passenger door provide greater visibility in hard-to-see areas.

A PRODUCTIVE PLACE TO SPEND THE DAY.

Sure, a truck is a business on wheels, but it's also a driver's home for eight or more hours a day. That's why we've designed the Business Class M2 with the driver in mind. The cab is wide and deep, providing the driver much-appreciated elbow and leg room. The ergonomically designed driver's area features an automotive style dashboard, easy to read LED-backlit gauges and controls that are within easy reach. An advanced heating and air conditioning system provides excellent air flow for uniform temperature control throughout the cab, and extensive interior insulation reduces noise and provides additional protection against the elements.

And for those who use their truck as an office, the Business Class M2 offers plenty of storage space. Items can be stored in the overhead console that comes standard or in the optional floor-mounted compartment that features a writing surface, printer provision and 12-volt power outlet.

TILT & TELESCOPE STEERING.

The foot-controlled release on the adjustable steering column lets both hands stay on the wheel while providing an infinite number of adjustments.

MAINTENANCE MADE EASY.

We've designed the Business Class M2 to be easy to maintain, with quick access to critical maintenance points. The hood opens easily and features integrated splash shields that lift out of the way for better accessibility. Frequently inspected components are strategically placed, allowing for faster repairs and adjustments. See-through fluid reservoirs reduce the time spent checking fluid levels and a removable floor section allows access to the transmission without removing the floor covering.

The standard proprietary Donaldson PowerCore air cleaner is designed to go longer between replacements, yet still traps 99.85 percent of airborne particles before they reach the engine. The Business Class M2 features a lube-free steering shaft, a self-adjusting hydraulic clutch and suspensions that require no maintenance or lubrication.

The truck's multiplex electrical system has about half the wires of a traditional electrical system, which reduces possible failure points and allows technicians to more quickly pinpoint electrical problems. Even the three-piece bumper was designed to save repair costs by allowing partial replacement. The resule is a vehicle that spends more time on the road.
