Daimler trucks - NEW FORM
What would the world and the future be without visionaries and inventors? In the test workshop founded in Cannstatt in 1882, Gottlieb Daimler and his employee Wilhelm Maybach soon developed a compact, high-speed, single-cylinder four-stroke engine. After many joint projects, i.a. Even with Carl Benz, some motorized inventions were created in advance, which have been developed further and further over the years. The Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft began developing the world's first truck in 1894. Just two years later on October 1, 1896, the first truck (order no. 81) was sold to the British Motor Syndicate / London. The 6 HP (4.4 kW) engine was installed directly under the driver's seat. In the same year, this unique piece was followed by different trucks, which were available in four different power levels: 2.9 kW, 4.4 kW, 5.9 kW and 7.4 kW. From now on the engines were installed under the front axle, could drive backwards and even manage an incline of up to 12%. The highly detailed model with its filigree seat and fine spoke rims is an interesting collector's item and should not be missing in any collection.
