MAN Cleans Up with Scarab
Road sweeper manufacturer Scarab Sweepers has selected MAN TGM chassis to showcase its M6 and Magnum sweeper equipment.
Two new demonstrator vehicles are already in service and have been attracting interest from municipalities and private contractors across Europe. It is the first time Scarab has built on the MAN platform in the UK.
Scarab expects 20 MAN TGM chassis will be in service with operators in the UK and the European mainland before the end of the year.
The first of the two TGM 15.250 4x2 BLs, with 'C' Day Cab, is bodied with Scarab’s Hydrostatic ‘Magnum’, while its stable-mate is fitted with Scarab’s twin engine ‘M6’ body.
Scarab’s many body sizes and alternative drive types compliment MAN’s comprehensive chassis range to provide a total solution for all Contractor and Municipal applications.
“We wanted a truck which would be accepted in as many European markets as possible,” said Nigel Proctor, Product Manager at Scarab, “MAN’s middleweight TGM chassis provides us with the best generic fit.
“It’s a nicely proportioned chassis making installation of the equipment an easy affair. No AdBlue equipment expedites this task still further and I know customers also welcome the operational simplicity of MAN’s EGR system.” He added, “I have found that if our customers like the chassis, then they tend to like the equipment, too.”
