COVER STORY

HeavyTorque Issue Five: Cadzow

TITANS UNLEASHED

MERCEDES-BENZ’S CURRENT HEAVY HAULAGE TRACTOR UNIT RANGE IS FINDING FAVOUR WITH MANY OPERATORS IN THE UK AND EUROPE. BOB BEECH VENTURED NORTH TO SPEAK TO CADZOW HEAVY HAULAGE OF BLANTYRE, SCOTLAND, WHO HAVE EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE OF BOTH THE LATEST RANGE AND THE TWO PREVIOUS GENERATIONS OF BIG TRACTORS TO WEAR THE THREE-POINTED STAR.

MERCEDES & TITAN IN THE UK

Mercedes had a limited presence in the UK heavy haulage until about 2002/3. Before this, they introduced a small range of 6x2 and 6x4 tractor-units in the early 1990s, based on the well-established SK range covering the 80 to 150 tonnes weight range, with a restricted specification. Their very heavy-duty range was produced in conjunction with specialist converter Titan Spezialfahrzeugbau GmbH. It was not generally available via the Mercedes dealer network in the UK – but was proving to be very popular in mainland Europe and beyond. Forward-looking operators Sunter Brothers Ltd, imported a pair of new Titan tractors back in the late 70s; other used models found their way to this country over the years.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
