Leeds-based Mone Bros has taken delivery of four tippers through MAN’s direct sales operation and dealership Steadplan Leeds.
All are MAN 8×4 TGS 35.420 BB models with 12.4-litre straight-six engines producing 420 hp and include 2.24 m wide M cabs. The TGS’s are bodied by L Townend, West Yorkshire, and feature its “Governor” design – a heavyweight high strength steel all-rounder.
They come with double skin steel tipping bodies with 5 mm Hardox floors, 4 mm Hardox sides, 2.5 mm mild steel outer skins, Hardox top rails and Hardox tail doors. The vehicles also use Harsh HFT149 front end tipping gear, electric front to back flip sheeting systems, PM1155 4 Cell On-Board Weigh Systems and offer a payload allowance of more than 19 tonnes.
All come with MAN’s standard manufacturer four-year warranty and include its Mobile24 24-hour breakdown service. They will work across the operator’s four sites and at customer construction projects moving spoil, muck and demolition waste.
Director Phil Mone said: “The MAN brand is relatively new to us, with the first vehicles arriving in September 2018, but in the short time we’ve been dealing with MAN the service we’ve received has been impeccable. “We know that we can depend not only on the vehicles themselves, but also on the salesman Neil Turner, the manufacturer and the dealer back-up.”
