Great Turn-Out for MAN Truck & Bus Roadshow at RK Trucks

The MAN Truck & Bus’s New Generation Construction and Waste Roadshow took place recently at RK Truck Centre’s Dungannon depot.

There was a great turn out over the two days, with operators in the waste and construction sectors across the country taking advantage of the opportunity to get behind the wheel of MAN’s TGS, TGM and TGE models.

At their disposal was a TGS 35.510 8×4 tipper, a TGS 8×4 tipper 32.400, a TGS 32.430 8×4  tipper grab, a TGM skip loader 18.250, a TGE 3.180 4×4 dropside – models that have been specifically designed for the heavy duty construction, distribution and waste industries.

MAN say the two day event was characterised by “lots of customer interest, lots of interesting questions being asked and lots of test drives.”

Not only does this award winning MAN Truck Generation range bring a new level of comfort, safety, efficiency, and reliability, but also connectivity and digitalisation.

In designing and building this New Generation Truck range, MAN clearly made safety a key consideration for operators in long-haul operations, on construction sites, in municipal services and in distribution networks.

The TG range offers good visibility and optimum display of important driving information, essential in urban driving situations and on tight construction sites or when manoeuvring around tricky delivery locations.

The ergonomics of frequently entering and exiting the cab, as is part of the daily work routine in urban distribution transport or when operating municipal services, is another key aspect that MAN have successfully addressed – and from this October, there’s also a new optional MAN OptiView mirror replacement system available.

It works exclusively with cameras, including at the front and on the sides of the vehicle. They show what is happening around the truck on two large high-resolution displays on the A-pillars and also on the screen of the media system.

The driver has a selection of view options to choose from, each consistently eliminating blind spots, improving visibility and, above all else, significantly improving safety for other road users. The turn assist function is also integrated into the display concept.
