The MAN TGS WW 4x2 tractor head which will be displayed at the MAN stand combines traction and short haul operations for more efficiency. The specifications cater to construction as well as urban transport applications and help to reduce fuel consumption. MAN combines those features with its strong traction chassis for off-road applications as well to meet tough operating conditions in the Middle East.
The TGS WW 4x2 has a new cabin with more space and features for driver comfort with high quality interiors. It has an intelligent MAN BrakeMatic® system, which features Electronic Braking System (EBS) and Anti-Locking Braking System (ABS). It also has the ability to control an ABS/EBS equipped trailer via the on-board computer while being fitted with Anti-Slip Control (ASR) and differential lock for better traction. Fuel consumption gets reduced through the latest common rail technology engines available in EURO2 and EURO3. Operating costs for the TGS WW 4x2 is very low and it has long service intervals due to less wear and tear and GCC specifications for extreme hot weather conditions.
According to Sheikh Fahed Bin Mohammed Bin Fahed Al-Thani, “ QIA has played a significant role within the Fahed Group to bring the latest transport solutions in partnership with world class companies like MAN. It enjoys an excellent reputation among our customer base in Qatar for its commitment in exceeding their expectations over the years and I see a great opportunity to build on this reputation to further grow our market share and support the transport and logistics industry in Qatar.”
