MAN TGE Tipper Review
MAN TGE Tipper At A Glance
Versatile tradesperson vehicles are in high demand, but have the team at MAN cracked the code when it comes to a reliable and road-ready work van? Long story short, they’ve struck gold with the TGE Tipper. Though the German manufacturer may not have the recognised history of Ford or Mercedes, this new design possesses everything you could possibly want from an adaptable van, retaining interior comfort, a desirable loading area and much more. As the manufacturer boldly proclaims, there are “almost limitless options for your daily working life, no matter where this takes place”, and the infinitely useful chassis cab design, paired with diverse accessory options ensure that any situation is accounted for.
Capable of offering tipper functionality as well as easy road navigation with a roomy interior, there are plenty of comfort features for those long-haul journeys. A 2 litre diesel engine provides the power, while the TGE chassis cab is optimally equipped for bodies of all kinds, providing scope for this van to be used efficiently as a useful tipper on-site, or simply as a daily-use vehicle, navigating yourself and colleagues from A to B when required.
Though we recommend this model for professionals who generally work with heavy materials, and those who would benefit from the tipper functionality, there are some drawbacks to discuss, which will be covered further in the body of this review. Nonetheless, continue reading for an extensive breakdown of the pros and cons when you acquire a MAN TGE Tipper, with technical specifications, performance information and additional features provided by this 21st Century tipper.
Engines and Spec
Equipped with a 2 litre diesel engine, 3640mm wheelbase and generously sized loading area, this multifunctional vehicle is ideal for busy tradespeople with a need for convenience and easy tipping. Providing a 3270mm load length across steel flooring, benefit from the single stage ram and scissor mechanism. 2100mm wide for easy loading, the 400mm sideboards are made from lightweight aluminium, allowing you to seamlessly load your vehicle and secure materials of components in place. As a first-time tipper investment, this vehicle is simple to use, with a cushy exterior storage area preventing the need for cramming items into the back space.
We recommend simplifying the transport of goods as part of a fleet or one-off purchase, with this affordable van solution likely to tick all boxes. Every detail is accounted for, from the impressive bodywork and cab design, to the 205/75 R16 tyres with low rolling resistance. The MAN TGE Tipper is available from Van Sales UK, and can be acquired either brand new, used, or as a lease option for your specific financial needs. Be sure to check for updated finance deals and don’t miss out on this comprehensive tipper. Acquiring this van at your earliest convenience couldn’t be easier, with free delivery to your site or premises.
German efficiency is the order of the day when it comes to this TGE Tipper, and although there are perhaps more luxury tech options within similarly priced tipper vans, an abundance of space within the front cab more than makes up for it. Interior features are varied, including the MAN Media Van radio system, with 5″ TFT screen, USB connection and bluetooth capabilities. Simply ideal for longer trips and occasions during which you’ll be spending plenty of time in the cab, unwind with music of your choice. Other convenience features include a multi-function steering wheel, comfort single driver’s seat with 2-way lumbar support, armrest and height adjustment, alongside a dual passenger seat with fold down table and storage box.
Safety features are plentiful, and the team at MAN have clearly spent plenty of time focusing on driver and passenger wellness. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Assist (EBA), a start-stop system with regenerative braking and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) are all featured, while a full size steel spare wheel can be stashed away in case of emergencies. Tipper functions are easily operated via buttons within the cab, meaning that this tipper van can be used by all, from experienced professionals to those largely unfamiliar with using such a vehicle.
Storage & Payload
The MAN TGE Tipper is a fantastic choice if you have specific storage needs, particularly for jobs involving bulky materials and assets required in construction. Safely transporting workers and materials should be the very first consideration when choosing a van, and navigation is easy thanks to the spacious rear storage area. Maintain hassle-free unloading when it comes to dropping off your cargo, simply pressing a combination of buttons, and letting the van’s tipper functionality handle everything else.
For tradespeople requiring a spacious interior, and large rear storage space capable of housing materials, equipment and much more, this van is a great candidate. Professionals of all kinds can simplify tasks and complete jobs to a high standard with a practical set-up and easy-to-learn tipper interface.
