I know this truck from many visits to Russia and Ukraine, they are widely used for petrol distribution, I don't know if there is a low maximum limit, but normally they carry 10.000 litres, seven tons. They are the most dangerous thing to meet, not because drivers are crazy, not at all, but because they are so slow. Cruising speed is 50-60 km/h35 mph, and they fall flat at even the tiniest hills, while the driver frantically shifts down in the 5-speed box. A 5% hill will set it down to crawling speed in first gear. And acceleration is non-existng. If you come up to them at night from behind, they sport to 5W rearlamps, invisible unless the night is very clear.
Problem seems to be that they are virtually indestructable, "built like a Mack" is not enough here.
