MAN Truck & Bus will shine a spotlight on the rugged TGS 26.540 tipper spec unit at the Brisbane Truck Show later this week.

The 6x4 540hp tipper spec unit boasts a low tare weight chassis that yields higher payload availability, giving customers better productivity.

"The TGS 26.540 unit excels in the field, whether on a construction site, or travelling locally or intrastate,” said Kevin Dennis, managing director of Penske Commercial Vehicles.

"The truck offers great visibility making it ideal on heavily‐populated work sites, not to mention an excellent turning circle resulting in exceptional manoeuvrability.

"We have seen customers consistently realising over 40 tonne payloads achieved through light chassis weight and optimal trailer designs.

Mr Dennis said customers can count on outstanding fuel efficiency with MAN, along with low whole‐of‐life costs, maximum safety and comfort, and proven reliability.

"And that's exactly what the TGS tipper spec unit delivers.”

In addition to the TGS 540hp tipper spec unit, MAN Truck & Bus will also have a TGX D38 580hp and a TGX D38 640hp PerformanceLine unit at the show.

Visitors will find MAN Truck & Bus and Western Star Trucks at stand 50 (foyer) at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 16-19.

DJR Team Penske's Dick Johnson will be at the stand from 11.30am on Sunday May 19 for a meet and greet with show attendees.
