MAN TGM on the building site


Common Rail for all

Tried-and-tested engine technology, well-engineered components and perfectly coordinated technologies: This is MAN's recipe for Euro 3 Emission standard, which is based on the company's high-torque six-cylinder engines. In order to achieve the extremely low emissions values, MAN uses the key Common Rail injection, exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR). The result: MAN engines in Euro set the standard when it comes to low fuel consumption. Thanks to its compact size, the exhaust sufficient free space for superstructures on the side of the chassis. The silencer can be positioned to allow sufficient space for crane supports. To prevent dust particles from circulating when driving off-road, a version with elevated exhaust pipe is available for all series.

Power from six cylinders

The dynamic torque curve of the modern Common Rail engines in Euro 3 allows you to drive economically and with the minimum number of gear shifts – regardless of your chosen engine. The TGM is driven by six-cylinder engines with a power range from 176 kW (240 HP) to 240 kW (330 HP). For excellent engine power in any speed range.

D0836 CR

Tried-and-tested technology for ultimate reliability.

MAN has incorporated its entire engineering expertise into the development of the Euro engine to satisfy this demanding standard. MAN has already successfully been using the key Common Rail, exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR) for many years in its series production. These fully developed technologies were combined and optimally tuned to one another for Euro 3. The result: Euro 3 versions of MAN engines are among the most consumption-efficient units in the competitive market.

Gearbox – how efficiency gets into gear

Efficiency really gets going with the economical Common Rail engines and the MAN TipMatic® gearbox: A powertrain that generates fewer emissions and therefore protects the environment.

MAN TipMatic®

Improved efficiency: MAN TipMatic® – including cross-country drive mode

Efficiency is one of the major benefits of the MAN TipMatic® semi-automatic gearbox. The gearbox can be operated effortlessly either fully automatically or manually by means of the touch-action lever on the steering wheel. The driver is not distracted and can fully concentrate on the road. The MAN TipMatic® is also available with off-road cross-country drive mode.

If the engine brake is actuated, the gearbox selects the most appropriate gear automatically to provide full braking power – a clear advantage when it comes to safety. The MAN TipMatic® also reduces fuel consumption and prevents damage to the powertrain.

The easy-to-operate manual gearbox with a nine-speed gearbox or twelve-speed semi-automatic gearbox is also available as an alternative.

Off-road without limits – the advantages:

  • Optimum traction with 4x4 guarantees a high level of driving stability and safety on slippery roads and rough terrain
  • Distributor gearbox with 2 gears for improved all-wheel traction: On-road and off-road gears
  • Electronic transfer case and lock management system (VSM) for an optimum off-road driving strategy
  • MAN TipMatic® Offroad with optimum gear shifting strategy for off-road use
  • MAN EasyStart for safe and effortless start-up on hills

Chassis cab

Are you looking for maximum driving comfort and load protection? The optional full air suspension with ECAS electronic control system makes this possible. The level of the chassis can be lowered by 90 mm and raised by 190 mm in order to adjust the frame height precisely. The MAN TGM 15 tonner, for example, is particularly economical on the road with its 19.5-inch tyres. This truck can be loaded to 11.99 tons, which means it can be driven toll-free in Germany.

TGM chassis

Maximum stability with a minimum weight

The MAN TGM frame is designed for maximum stability and loading capacity while still being extremely lightweight. The sophisticated frame concept with its even top frame edge makes it particularly easy to attach superstructures both quickly and cost-efficiently, without having to drill holes and compromise corrosion protection. MAN Tronic, the tried-and-tested electronics structure based on CAN bus technology, and the interface for external data exchange (KSM), also open up opportunities for a vast range of vehicle and superstructure functions.

What doesn't fit is made to fit

To guarantee the right frame length for any superstructure length, MAN has developed a clever solution for the MAN TGM: The variable rear frame end. The narrow hole pattern allows the frame overhang to be adjusted to the superstructure without the need for additional drilling. The end crossmember is bolted down, making repositioning easy.
