MAN

SPOTLIGHT: ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURER

HeavyTorque Issue Twelve: MAN - Specialist Vehicles

MAN OF THE MOMENT

MAN HAS HAD A STRONG PRESENCE IN THE WORLDWIDE HEAVY HAULAGE AND SPECIALIST APPLICATION SECTORS FOR MANY YEARS, AND WHILE MANY UK OPERATORS WILL BE AWARE OF ITS HEAVY HAULAGE PRODUCTS AND OPERATE MAN TRUCKS, THE SHEER BREADTH AND COMPLEXITY OF ITS PRODUCT RANGE MIGHT WELL SURPRISE MANY PEOPLE.

While most manufacturers offer a wide range of vehicle layouts and specifications to meet numerous applications, allowing operators to tailor the vehicle to meet their exact requirements, MAN probably takes things a little further than many of its competitors. As far as the heavy haulier is concerned, MAN offers a wide range of three- and four-axle factory built chassis that can be specified to meet most applications. In addition, it offers a comprehensive range of rigid and tractor variants for specialist operations, with particular emphasis on conventional all-wheel-drive and hydraulically operated front axle traction assist systems. If a customer is looking for a chassis for a truly specialist role, it offers bespoke designs that are purpose-built for almost any application via the manufacturer’s working partnership with conversions specialists such as German-based Toni Maurer. They offer a huge range of special axle layouts, cab conversions, chassis alterations and other special modifications to meet a huge range of applications. This work is carried out with full factory approval using either original equipment parts, or bespoke components that are designed and engineered to the same high standards.

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?
