New MAN tippers and trucks heading to Bowring 11 November 2011

East Midlands haulier and tipper operator Bowring Transport has added 10 new MAN trucks to its general haulage and muck-shift fleets – taking its total number of MAN vehicles to 60.

Four TGS 35.400 8x4 muck-away tippers with extended 'M' day cabs join the Warsop-based operation's 20-strong MAN tipper fleet on muck-shifting and road-planing duties. The eight-wheelers come with Thompson muck-away bodies and Edbro tipping gear.

Six TGX 26.440 6x2 tractors, with XLX cabs, are already in service on liquid waste-transfer tanker operations at WhitKirk Waste Solutions, one of seven Bowring Transport member companies. All the new vehicles come with comprehensive three-year MAN warranties.

"For muck-away work, MAN builds a tough, no-nonsense eight-wheeler, and it certainly does the job," comments managing director, David Bowring.

"In fact, it's just about the best 8x4 on the market. Our drivers are happy, and residuals are very good, too. We think we're running the right truck... We're pleased there's no AdBlue to worry about, too. "We see it as an operational constraint, and we'll choose to run without it for as long as possible."
