Vyta orders MANs with OptiView Mirror-Replacement system

15 February 2024 #Truck

IT recycling company Vyta has taken delivery of two new MAN trucks to provide customers with sustainable, secure and compliant IT asset disposal and on-site hard drive shredding.

The Newtownabbey-based company’s new trucks, 4×2 rigids with a TGL 12.250 and a TGM 15.290 specified with MAN’s mirror-replacement system OptiView, join a fleet of 12 other specialist vehicles.

Specified individually and built to meet the needs of the business, both vehicles are powered by the Euro6e compliant, 6 cylinder, D08, 6.9 litre engine, the TGL rated at 250hp and the heavier TGM, at 290hp.

The 12-tonne TGL, with its 4850mm wheelbase chassis is fitted with the comfortable and compact CC day cab, whereas the 15-tonne TGM, with its 5125mm chassis, is fitted with the larger TM high-roof sleeper cab.

MAN’s OptiView system replaces all conventional mirror arms and mirrors. The advanced 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.

Offering close-range, wide-angle and blind spot displays these cameras increase the field of vision.

These two new trucks have replaced two older MAN vehicles that have served the company for the last six years.

Matt Harris, Systems & Process Manager at Vyta, said: “Our drivers have fully embraced OptiView and we hear nothing but positive comments about the enhanced fields of vision and the reduced blind spots on the kerbside.”
