UK crane rental firm John Sutch Cranes has expanded its transport fleet with a new MAN TGX 26.560 6x4 D38 truck.

The new truck is plated at 150 tonnes GCW (gross combination weight) and it will be used to support crane operations. Commenting on his choice, John Sutch said, “We have eight 150 tonne wagons in the fleet and they are all MAN, simply because they have never once let us down. They are carrying the ballast needed for the cranes to operate and they travel the UK always fully loaded.”

Sutch also complimented the distributor, “MAN Truck & Bus Manchester has provided us with excellent service for the last 20 years and we are still running vehicles that are about 10 years old. The operators like them and they are reliable.”

The truck’s new 15.2 litre straight six D38 Euro 6 engine is rated at 560 hp (412 kW). Maximum torque is 2,700 Nm.
