The Freightliner 108SD packs heavyweight power into a smaller package. It takes toughness onto tight job sites and down narrow streets. So the job can get done as efficiently as possible. With the 108SD, you get powerful, fuel-efficient engines, multiple PTO options, a chassis engineered for ease of upfit and a weight-optimized design.
The 108SD has a 42” set-back axle position for efficient weight transfer to the front axle. With a wheel cut up to 50 degrees and a swept-back bumper, this truck can easily maneuver tight work sites.
The 108SD also incorporates a proprietary SmartPlex™ Electrical System, which provides unmatched flexibility for TEMs when configuring a truck to suit specific body installations. SmartPlex is a multiplex electrical system that simplifies chassis-to-body electrical integration and significantly reduces the number of wires. SmartPlex adds expansion capabilities and allows custom programming for each customer's unique requirements, with no software to buy and no additional tools required.
Front engine, rear engine and transmission power take-off (PTO) options allow hydraulic packaging to suit any specific application. Smart PTO packaging allows a cleaner installation behind the cab, while providing consistent and maximum power output. The 108SD offers integral front frame extensions in either 6" or 24" lengths. This provides a solid mounting point for hydraulic pumps, winches, hose reels, front stabilizers and snow plows.
Severe duty construction, combined with a steel-reinforced aluminum cab, make the 108SD sturdy and durable enough for a hard day's work. For many days to come.
The 108SD features a tough-as-nails frame. It offers C-channel frame rails with or without a frame rail liner for additional reinforcement if needed. Heavy duty cross members also can be installed with high strength Grade 8 hex bolts or optional Huck Bolt chassis fasteners. So, whatever terrain you tackle, the 108SD can take it.
The 108SD has special features that are made for severe environments, like a side-of-hood air intake. In combination with optional pre-cleaner, the new air cleaner holds 20% more dust and debris, and is easily accessible. This set-up offers improved resistance to engine contamination, and the larger filter extends maintenance intervals.
The ergonomic design of the cab interior, as well as comfort and convenience features, help operators stay productive and efficient throughout the day.
The 108SD cab interior is spacious, with ample elbow and leg room. The optional extended and crew cab models provide even more room and flexible seating. For the driver, we've built in plenty of ergonomic features, like a tilt/telescoping steering wheel and an automotive-style dash. Instruments and controls are within easy reach. And our proprietary SmartPlex™ Electrical System provides switch flexibility for enhanced operator efficiency.
