Tamar Nurseries grows fleet with MAN10 August 2017

Wisbech-based Tamar Nurseries has taken delivery of its second MAN truck, a TGL 12.180 BB Day cab, after impressive performance from its first vehicle which arrived two years ago.

The new addition has a bespoke body by Priden Engineering, which includes a smooth roof so that trees and shrubs are not damaged. It is also fitted with a cantilever tail-lift, four-camera safety system and near side warning system.

The TGL’s 4.6-litre engine delivers 180bhp at 2,300 rpm, driving through a six-speed Tipmatic transmission.

Mary Williams, of Tamar Nurseries, says: “Two years ago we decided to lease the MAN TGM 26-tonne truck and we have been very happy with it. We have never had a moment’s bother and, because it is on a seven-year contract, we know exactly where we stand with payments and outgoings.”

She adds: “Our six-weekly maintenance checks are all booked in at the start of the year through our dealer Imperial Commercials, so we can plan accordingly and the whole system works very well.”
