Supplied by dealer WG Davies, the Cardiff-based operator’s latest additions are TGS 35.400 8x4 tippers, with six-cylinder, 12.4-litre Euro 6 engines delivering 400bhp at 1,800 rpm.
Also featuring MAN’s TipMatic 12-speed transmission, each vehicle is plated for 32,000kg.
In the last three years, Neal Soils and sister company Atlantic Recycling have taken 30 MAN TGS 8x4 trucks with a range of bodies, along with four TGX 26.480 tractors through MAN TopUsed.
Group operations manager Mark Williams (pictured) says the business took a MAN on hire following “some issues” with 15 vehicles from another manufacturer: “We were very impressed with MAN and it seemed natural to go there when we replaced the fleet.
“Now I can safely say that we are MAN ambassadors,” he adds. “The fleet is currently 95% MAN and we will definitely be using them again in the future.”
He also praises the dealer, WG Davies, saying: “You really can’t fault them and they pull out all the stops for us.”
