Pallet Plus acquires 11 new MAN trucks

Colchester distributor Pallet Plus has taken delivery of 11 new MAN trucks all powered by the manufacturer’s latest-generation Euro VIe engines.

Ensuring customers receive a focused and flexible service, the new fleet additions come in the form of one 12-tonne TGL, seven 18-tonne TGMs, one 26-tonne TGS rigid and two TGX 44-tonne 6×2 tractors.

These include the four-cylinder D0834 in the TGL 12-tonners, the six-cylinder D0836 in both the TGM 18-tonne and nine-litre D15 in the TGX 26-tonne rigids, and the D26 in the TGX 6×2 tractors.

The nine chassis cabs were transported directly to a body builder in Wakefield, where they were fitted with a lightweight curtainsider body featuring rear barn doors and a 1.5-tonne capacity cantilever tail lift.

These GM cabbed tractors will pull a mix of 40-foot curtainsiders and LST extra-long high volume double deck stepframe trailers.

Pallet Plus now operates 50 vehicles, the vast majority of which are MANs.
