Highly robust and reliable, ASTRA vehicles are easily manoeuvrable both on building sites and normal roads, thanks to the wide range of tractions available and to the efficient and particularly flexible engines.


820 mm wide, unique heavy duty chassis Two longitudinal side members in high resistance special steel with a tensile strength of 530 Mpa with large sections. 3 and 4-axle HD9: 320x90x10 mm Special versions with 6 mm thick internal chassis reinforcement to ensure a high level of torsional stiffness and high stability even in the most extreme situations. Chassis with a high level of torsional stiffness and maximum resistance to bending of the side member in the central section up to 202 Km and above for special versions.

Loads up to 10 tons thanks to reinforced front drive axles and axles for the most arduous off-road use (routes with slopes or heavy loads concentrated on the front of the vehicle).

Loads up to 16 tons for rear axles on standard versions and above for special versions with standard or maximum width of 2.9 m, with standard reinforced suspension.

Maximum load on rear tandem of up to 40 tons and GVW beyond 60 tons thanks to a reinforced rear tandem on both the standard HD9 version (2.5 m) and the HHD9 version (2.9 m). Closed ring structure of the rear suspension (“power ring”), made up of cast iron carriage shoulders and a lower cross member (Astra patented).

Wide choice of PTO: on engine, between clutch and gearbox, on gearbox and transmission.


Front approach angles > 25° with high ground clearance depending on the configuration and tyres to tackle any type of route and off-road incline.

4-axle HD9 in partial or all-wheel drive configuration and max. width of 2.5 m.

3-axle HHD9 with all-wheel drive and max. width of 2.9 m.

Availability of engageable transfer boxes which ensure the efficiency of a rear wheels drive while granting the same mobility of an all-wheel drive whenever is needed.

Easy customisation of all types of tyre.
