Newell Wright Group are constantly investing in new haulage trucks, plant and equipment. We are please to take delivery of 2 new 62 Plate MAN TGX XLX Trucks offering many useful features such as easy navigation and storage of traffic messages.
Full standing height, full comfort: the XLX cab is designed as a long-haul cab for vehicle fleets. It captivates with its excellent aerodynamics and a powerful, elegant optical appearance. Attention was given to safety through better all-round vision and optimised outside mirrors. Perfect for long journeys: the MAN engineers have developed a newly modelled roof spoiler especially for the XLX cab: the opening for the sliding roof has been integrated into the spoiler so that fresh air can flow through the opened sliding roof without any detriment to the aerodynamics.
