MAN TGL – the entry to the Trucknology® Generation

MAN TGL – the entry to the Trucknology® Generation

Many different variants of the MAN TGL two-axle chassis with on-road drive between 7.49 and 12 tonnes roll off the production line. A positive aspect in providing safety is the fact that this range can also be equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Program), something that doesn't yet go without saying in this class nowadays! The range of engines includes powerful four- and six-cylinder engines with exhaust-gas recirculation and common-rail injection that develop between 110 kW (150 hp) and 184 kW (250 hp). Depending on market requirements, there are engines available in every power class that meet the Euro 4, Euro 5 or EEV exhaust-gas standards, last-mentioned being currently the most stringent, and this without using any additives such as, for example, AdBlue®. This makes itself positively felt on the municipal vehicles because not having to mount an additional tank leaves more mounting space on the frame and enables a greater payload. Moreover, there is also greater safety in operation because the driver only has to tank up with diesel fuel. The MAN TipMatic® automated transmission makes things easier for the driver, who now no longer has to worry about changing gear and can concentrate completely on driving and doing his job.

MAN's smallest is big when it comes to choice of wheelbases and cabs. Amongst the latter is the spacious crew cab with space for up to seven people. Its four-seater bench consists of a seat with individual backrests, headrests and automatic three-point belts. The crew cabs are all-steel and fully galvanized, their production and interior finishing being carried out together with the other driver's cab models at the MAN plant in Steyr.

The MAN TGL is thus outstandingly suited for operation as a three-way tipper, set-down or roll-off skip loader, road sweeper, skylifter, waste-collection or conduit-cleaning vehicle, to mention only a few examples from a wide variety of possible uses.
