Specialist manufacturer Instarmac in the UK has invested in a new MAN TGX as it looks to add an artic to its fleet. The British company has traditionally run MAN rigids relying on rentals or contractors for some deliveries.
The MANs were their first choice for cab size and the feedback appears to be just as positive this time. After just his first run out the TGX driver told me it is ‘the best tractor unit he has ever driven’ and he is an experienced driver who has held his licence for a number of years. The price and package have obviously measured up and we are confident that the performance of the TGX over the coming years will also speak for itself.
