Powering the HD 500 tractor head is a 13-liter EURO II in-line 6 diesel motor that pushes out 316 hp and 1,451 Nm of torque. It sends power to the rear wheels via a 10-speed manual transmission that comes with two reverse gears. The HD 500 rides on semi-elliptic laminated leaf springs with a shackle link for the front and rear. Stopping power comes from an air brake system that comes with a butterfly valve.
As the HD 500 is a tractor head, this makes the truck ideal for the cargo-hauling industry thanks to its powerful and torquey motor. It can be used to tow a multitude of trailer options such as a tanker, low bed, drop bed, bulk carrier, and flatbed.
