THE dis­tri­bu­tion busi­ness re­quires one to be fast, ag­ile and ef­fi­cient and the UD Quester pro­vides for all of this. This UD truck ver­sion has all the qual­i­ties you need to con­stantly stay up and run­ning.

Its rugged dura­bil­ity makes it right for a va­ri­ety of ap­pli­ca­tions in­clud­ing food and bev­er­age de­liv­ery, mu­nic­i­pal­ity, util­ity, petroleum and waste han­dling.

The name Quester means searcher and it is truly a truck for searchers of new fresh ideas and busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Quester de­liv­ers what trans­port com­pa­nies around the globe are look­ing for: an af­ford­able real heavy-duty truck that com­bines first-class fuel ef­fi­ciency with re­li­able dura­bil­ity.

Quester is UD Trucks’ most cost-ef­fi­cient truck ever. Not only when you buy it, but also when you drive it. It cuts fuel costs and max­imises up­time so you get quick, de­pend­able pay­back that will help you reach your busi­ness goals.

“Our two en­gine al­ter­na­tives are de­signed with proven fuel-ef­fi­ciency and su­pe­rior per­for­mance for medium-duty to heavy-duty ap­pli­ca­tions.

“We are a step ahead in pro­vid­ing lower op­er­at­ing costs and in­creased pro­duc­tiv­ity mak­ing it eas­ier for you to stay one step ahead of the com­pe­ti­tion,” said UD Trucks.

“The heart of ev­ery Quester is our in­te­grated power trains that per­form op­ti­mally be­cause they’re spe­cially de­signed and man­u­fac­tured to work to­gether.

“They com­bine the ef­fi­ciency and dura­bil­ity of a Quester en­gine with a first class se­lec­tion of glob­ally proven drive train com­po­nents.”

The Quester driv­e­line is care­fully bal­anced to op­ti­mise per­for­mance un­der vary­ing con­di­tions. It gives ex­cel­lent fuel econ­omy at cruis­ing speed due to the pos­si­bil­ity of match­ing the driv­e­line with the cor­rect rear axle ra­tio.

A lo­cally sourced and pop­u­lar trans­mis­sion based on well-proven tech­nol­ogy. The com­pany fur­ther de­vel­oped it to with­stand tough con­di­tions and meet our cus­tomers’ de­mands.

Af­ter rig­or­ous test­ing they ob­tained first-rate re­sults for re­li­a­bil­ity and dura­bil­ity. For the 11-litre en­gine you have a choice of 9 or 12 speed. For the 8-litre en­gine you can have 6 or 9 speed.

The Quester frame is ro­bust and han­dles tough de­mands.

The side rail sec­tion is made from strong and durable rolling form steel and is avail­able in thick­nesses of 7,0 or 8,0 mm.

Rolling form is a tor­sional flex­i­ble frame with uni­form stiff­ness, good for ver­ti­cal stress and tor­sion stress when rolling and pitch­ing hap­pen to­gether.

This re­duces stress from un­even road sur­faces, loads with high cen­tre of grav­ity and un­evenly dis­trib­uted loads, mak­ing it suit­able for many dif­fer­ent con­di­tions.

The se­cret of Quester lies in its ver­sa­til­ity. With Quester, UD Trucks of­fers a ve­hi­cle that al­lows cus­tomi­sa­tion for any trans­port re­quire­ment.

The Quester is de­signed for ease of su­per­struc­ture in­stal­la­tion with com­pre­hen­sive body­builder in­struc­tions and draw­ings.

The par­al­lel side mem­bers, de­signed body­builder mounts and a range of power take-offs add to the ease of in­stal­la­tion.

Quester of­fers ideal axle po­si­tion­ing, be­ing avail­able in 4×2R/T, 6×2R/T, 6×4R/T, 8×2R and 8×4R con­fig­u­ra­tions for dis­tri­bu­tion and long haul, and 6×4R/T and 8×4R for con­struc­tion and min­ing work.
