MAN with OptiView mirror-replacement for Hammond Transport

23 February 2023 #Truck

Billericay haulier Hammond Transport has taken delivery of a new MAN TGX tractor unit featuring the OptiView mirror replacement system.

The 26.510 6×2 tractor with GX cab is powered by a Euro6e compliant 12.4-litre, six-cylinder in-line D26 engine, producing 510 hp.

The mirror replacement system uses five exterior cameras, two on each side of the vehicle, which are mounted above the door frames close to the leading edge of the A-pillars and a fifth camera which replaces the forward facing cyclops mirror.

Safety equipment includes emergency brake assist, turn assist, lane change support, lane return assist, MAN attention guard, high beam assist, airbag and a driver’s seat belt tensioner system.

The vehicle was supplied through MAN’s direct truck sales function and was prepared by MAN’s franchised partner Harris Truck & Van, from Witham, Essex.

It is subject to an optional five-year Comfort Super service plan and financed through MAN Financial Services on a fixed-term hire purchase agreement.

Terry Hammond, Managing Director at the family-owned haulier, said. “With the introduction of the Optiview system the vehicles now look sleeker and offer a more comprehensive view of the vehicle’s surroundings, which as we do a considerable amount of work in London, is ideal for us.

“We’re really excited to be one of the first adopters of OptiView in the UK and the support we’re had from MAN, in terms of system familiarisation and driver training, helps further cement our view of MAN’s genuine committed and caring support.”
