A typical legacy of the American concern Chrysler should be considered a range of bonneted trucks.
It includes medium and heavy 2- and 3-axle trucks AS500, AS600, AS700, AS800, AS900 and AS950 with a payload of 7.5 to 18 tons.
The AS500-AS800 series are simplified vehicles for the Turkish market only.
They are known mainly under the brands Dodge and DeSoto.
The most famous AS950 truck series is produced under the Fargo, Dodge and DeSoto brands.
Its main design is a 3-axle construction 18-ton 6x2 dump truck with a gross weight of 25 tons with a rear lifting axle, designed for especially difficult working conditions.
It uses a turbocharged Perkins Phaser-180TDi diesel engine developing 180 hp, an Eaton 6-speed manual transmission, a metal 3-passenger cab with an air-sprung driver's seat, an adjustable steering wheel and a table.
These trucks are designed for the typical Asian operation with high overloads.
This can be done by an increased permissible load on the front axle of 7 tons and on each rear axle - 13 tons.
Thus, the total estimated mass of the dump truck can reach 33 tons.
For Turkey, under the DeSoto AS900 truck brand, they offer a lightweight version with a gross weight of 24 tons.
