TruFrame puts first Euro-6 truck into operation

  • 30 May 2014
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Window and patio door manufacturer TruFrame has added its first Euro-6 truck to its fleet- an MAN TGM 4×2 rigid chassis.

The 18-tonner is powered by a 250hp engine and is fitted with a Transport Enterprises demount body.

The Melton Mowbray-based operator hopes to add more MAN trucks to the fleet once the lease terms on its other marques come to an end.

Transport and dispatch manager Paul North said the truck’s whole life costs compared favourably with other manufacturers’ Euro-6 trucks: “Since acquiring the new MAN Euro-6, we’re already seeing 13mpg, and that’s impressive for our operation; we’re using less AdBlue, the drivers love the MAN product anyway, and the aftersales support we receive from MAN Truck Bus Nuneaton is second to none.”

The company runs eight 18-tonners, five of which are MANs, including three same-spec Euro-5 TGMs which were added to TruFrame’s fleet over the last 24 months. It also operates one 7.5-tonner.
