Waste management company, Raymond Brown Waste Solutions, has, after a break of ten years, returned to MAN with the delivery of a new TGS 26.440 6×4 tractor unit. The vehicle is already in service in conjunction with the company’s bulk ejector trailer. Built for offroad specification, it is the only one of its kind in the UK. The exterior of the cab is impressive and has been liveried to match the company’s branding, therefore slotting in perfectly with the existing fleet.
On-site maneuverability was integral to Raymond Brown’s buying decision, as Steve Clasby, MD at Raymond Brown Waste Solutions, explained, “When we specified the truck,” he said, “there were a number of factors that were important to us as the vehicle was destined for landfill sites. Chassis options provided excellent ground clearance and, with the ability to fit an upright stack exhaust, which was not an option with some of MAN‘s competitors, the TGS boasted some distinct advantages.
“The overall price, along with the Repair & Maintenance package,” said Clasby, “made the vehicle an even more attractive proposition – plus the driver training which counts towards Driver CPC training.”
Full MAN telematics is installed as part of the MAN Fleet Management package which the company is looking forward to comparing against existing systems in its fleet.
“Proof of the pudding,” added Clasby, “has come in the shape of feedback from our driver who reports that the truck performs exceedingly well on landfill sites, drastically reducing the need for tow-outs.”
The truck and trailer combination is operating out of Raymond Brown’s Materials Recovery Facility situated at the A303 Enviropark.
