Chester-based Farrall’s Group buys its first New Generation MAN TGXs
Farrall’s Group has taken delivery of its first New Generation MAN TGX tractor units, a pair of 26.470 6x2’s with mid-lift axles and GM cabs.
The Chester-based family-run haulier has been running MANs for three years, the first to join its 70-strong fleet being a 2018 TGX 26.500 XXL.
“When purchasing an MAN you know exactly what you’re getting, they are robust, efficient and reliable,” says Matthew Farrall, Farrall's Group MD. “With MAN you also get a partnership with the dealer network, in our case AN Richards of Froncysyllte, who totally understand our business, our needs and offer us a 360 degree level of wrap-around care.
“We’ve heard great things about the new generation TGX in terms of efficiency and fuel consumption, so were very much looking forward to seeing how they perform and early indications are very positive indeed.”
