Reliable and efficient in municipal service - MAN Nutzfahrzeuge at the IFAT ENTSORGA 2010 in Munich

Municipalities and entrepreneurs alike need reliable, economical vehicles for special tasks in waste disposal, street cleaning and winter services: at MAN they will find the vehicles they need, adapted specifically for the customers' requirements. A new presentation at the fair is the three-axle TGM chassis for waste-collection bodies.

At the IFAT ENTSORGA 2010, the world's leading fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management from September 13 to 17 in Munich, MAN Nutzfahrzeuge is presenting a broad spectrum of its practically-oriented vehicle solutions. MAN offers a comprehensive portfolio of products from 7.49 to 41 tonnes gross vehicle weight as reliable and economical bases for user-specific bodies to perform a multitude of tasks such as waste disposal, street cleaning, winter services and conduit cleaning, as well as for the recycling industry. Five trucks at MAN's stand at the IFAT ENTSORGA 2010 demonstrate technological and sector competence. At the fair, MAN is exhibiting the three-axle TGM chassis with a gross vehicle weight of 26 tonnes for the first time. Thanks to its steered trailing axle it is a manoeuvrable vehicle ideally suited for waste-collection rounds in densely-built residential areas. At the same time, under its motto of "Consistently Efficient" MAN is also using this fair to present prototypes of the Hydrostatic Regenerative Braking (HRB) system from Bosch Rexroth. Positive effects of the system are reductions in fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and exposure to exhaust gas in the stop-and-go-operation that waste collection necessarily involves.

The four MAN series - TGL, TGM, TGS and TGX - offer a wide range of vehicles suited to the most different of tasks. Then there are also the CLA and TGS WW ranges, which are oriented particularly towards the operational conditions of markets outside Europe. The engines available start from outputs of 110 kW (150 hp) and extend to 500 kW (680 hp). In the inner cities, eco-friendliness is trumps. This is why the MAN engines not only meet the limits of the currently applicable Euro 5 exhaust-gas standard but can also be ordered in versions complying with the more stringent EEV (Enhanced Environmentally-friendly Vehicle) standard.

The MAN range of municipal vehicles

MAN vehicles perform the transport tasks in the cycle of recyclable resources with a high degree of reliability and flexibility. MAN Nutzfahrzeuge has a suitable chassis for every type of operation and every type of body. Power take-offs provide the power for hydraulic pumps, high-pressure cleaning or vacuum pumps. Special sector-specific conversions to municipal vehicles are coordinated by the MAN Modification Competence Center.
