Knowsley-based supplier and installer of temporary fencing, site hoarding, barriers and traffic management systems, Blok ‘N’ Mesh, has taken delivery of 26 new MAN trucks.
The vehicles, covering weight categories 7.5 and 18 tonnes, include six TGL 8.190 4×2 flatbeds and 20 TGM 18.250 4×2 flatbeds. All of the 18 tonne TGM’s feature chassis mounted Hiab X-HiDuo 158 Cranes.
Chris Maclean, Transport Logistics Director at Blok ‘N’ Mesh, said: “This fleet of 26 new MAN vehicles is entering our business at an exciting time and as we grow our national and international footprint they will work delivering a range of Blok ‘N’ Mesh products on to our customer sites. This upgrade of a significant part of our fleet takes advantage of the benefits that new MAN vehicles offer.
“Early feedback, in terms of efficiency, support and driver comfort, is extremely positive.” Bodied by Brit-Tipp Limited of Warrington, Blok ‘N’ Mesh’s new vehicles feature UK-manufactured flat bed bodies. Ensuring load security they all feature cross member, deck mounted, load restraint rings, galvanised removable side and corner posts and lockable ratchet strap boxes.
The 20 TGMs also feature front and rear strobe lights and Hiab’s Boom Deployment Assistant system (BDA) which prevents the driver from moving the vehicle if the crane is not stowed away correctly.
