But they cant pull typical long trailers. The max length of truck is limited in EU and this is the barrier to use cab forwards wich are longer than cub overs.

Depends. There are countries like the Netherlands, France, Finland where you can have a double trailer (B-Train) up to 26 meters. So in these countries I think they can pull typical trailers

The importation of North American tucks to Russia started with the fall of Communism. The reason they are so popular, is because of the more powerful engines (up to 720 hp vs the 310-325 hp in European/Russian trucks), more spacious/comfortable cabs and the simple fact that every trucker there, dreams of owning an American truck.

Cabover (Cab Forward), or conventional? Playing around on Google's Streetview, a lot of the American trucks I did see, were Freightliner Argosy model trucks. Most of which I saw in the Netherlands.

Yup. that's the big limitation right there. Then again, The European trucks do have the advantage of being able to maneuver in tighter spaces, than would the driver of a conventional N. American truck. BTW Cabover and Cab Forwards are the same thing.

Absolutely they could. But only if internally (truck does not leave Finland, with the possible exception of Russia), given that bordering countries will present problems in terms of the overall length of the truck.

I just saw one cabover: it was a Peterbilt with bulgarian license plates on the A1 southbound in Italy. All other I saw were long nose like these:

This one was in Genova, it has french registration and a normal trailer


This one in Padova, italian registration


another one near Modena, normal trailer




Volvo and Scania long nose are instead unusual but not rare in Italy


and I remember, here B-Trains don't exist like in France or Netherlands

hhhmmm..isn't it about time to close this thread!? or perhaps to clear it up..??
American, Scania trucks ???
What does that shit have to do with the subject of this thread?
is there any moderator still alive around here??
be it with a Bulgarian/Itialian license plate or anything else for that matter, move the shit to the Bulgarian/Italian thread..
I (plus many others) want to see in this thread MAINLY pictures of the Russian roads - Be it good or bad- and nothing else (!!!)
Ones basic verbal reasoning skills about American, European trucks, their specs etc. should be placed somewhere else..
So clear the shit up, Plz!!

Whereas the latter two points may very well be important, the first isn't, though. Scanias come with up to 730 hp in their regular lineup, for instance (useful up here in Scandinavia with steep hills and heavy loads...), and the average longhaul truck have 400-600 horses under the bonnet.

Take a camomile man, it's good education to answer when somebody ask you something, if it disturbs you also ignore it cause other people may are interested (like the one who asked). Take it easy

If you think that's far you have seen very few of those.
