DJB Haulage puts new fleet MAN TGX tractor units to work

DJB Haulage is enjoying a power boost from its new fleet of MAN TGX 26.480 6x2 tractor units.

The firm, part of the ADMP Group which includes Somerset based Willmott Transport, has chosen the increased power of the TGX 480 through MAN Finance to renew its fleet.

Andy Tuck, group transport director, explained: “We have been running some Euro 5s on ’12 plates and as the time for their renewal came along we took on the TGXs , the last three have been Euro 6s.

“The drivers are very happy with them and especially as we have upgraded from the 440bhp to the 480bhp and they are pulling heavy loads.

“The higher torque gives them bags of power, whether they are moving 30-tonne containers in Southampton or china clay or scrap over here in Somerset.

“We have a long history with MAN and run 18 in Southampton and 12 in Somerset. The contracts with MAN Finance, the repair and maintenance and the latest Microlise Trucknology telematics all added up to make MAN an attractive package.”

Roy Osborne, sales territory manager for MAN, added: “We are glad to have offered such an attractive deal and to maintain our long-standing relationship with the firm.

“It is good to hear the drivers are pleased with the extra torque and I am sure they will be enjoying the comfort of their TGX BMS XXL international cabs too.

“MAN Finance and the telematics certainly add up to make MAN an attractive and competitive package.”
