Go Plant Fleet Services has just taken delivery of a new MAN TGM Sweeper, which joins its 500 strong sweeper fleet.
The first MAN sweeper to join the fleet, a TGM 18.250 with full factory specification sweeper chassis, is already in service operating from Go Plant Barnsley, West Yorkshire, as part of the operated hire fleet.
Go Plant Fleet Services operate from a nationwide network of depots and service centres, working in partnership with local authorities and private sector markets across the UK.
Its latest sweeper, a Johnston 652, is based on a full MAN factory specification 3,275mm long wheelbase TGM 4x2 BB, 18 tonne sweeper chassis with air suspension.
Built specifically to meet the demands of the sweeper market, the new TGM is powered by the lightweight D08 250hp Euro6d engine, which drives through the MAN 12 speed Tipmatic fully automatic gearbox.
Ben Gilmore, director road sweeping operations at Go Plant Fleet Services, said: “MAN Truck & Bus have certainly impressed us with their desire to offer us a trusted partnering relationship and their professional method of specifying, building and supplying a specialised vehicle has been appreciated.
“From the initial meetings, through to taking delivery of the vehicle and ultimately entering the vehicle into our Sweeper fleet, MAN was aligned with our company belief of ‘together matters’ which involves going the extra mile and teamwork.”
The vehicle uses the narrow 2,240mm wide C cab. The C cab affords the driver excellent vision, an ultra-low step and wide-opening door entry and a comfortable and modern working environment.
Gilmore concluded: “Feedback so far from our drivers is extremely positive."
