MAN agricultural truck at Agritechnica 2019 trade fair
Trucks are the ideal option for the broad array of transport appli-cations in the agriculture industry, including for agricultural con-tractors. Offering high payload, low fuel consumption, high speed and top driving comfort, trucks excel in transport pro-cesses linking farm buildings, fields and storage facilities.

- MAN truck with higher-performance D26 engine
- Wide range of possible applications all year round
Between 10 and 16 November 2019, MAN Truck & Bus will be exhibiting engines for agricultural machinery from MAN Engines, as well as an agricul-tural truck based on the MAN TGS 18.510 4x4 BLS at the Agritechnica trade fair in Hanover, Germany (Hall 16, Stand D41).
The MAN TGS is equipped with the improved D26 engine, whose design meets the latest Euro 6 standards while offering a 10 hp power boost and 100 Nm torque increase over the existing model. As a result, the new power ratings will be 430 hp, 470 hp and 510 hp.
The 510 hp all-wheel drive semitrailer tractor on display will boast agricultural tyres that minimise soil disruption (445/65R22.5 at the front and 600/50R22.5 at the rear). Its agriculture industry-tailored features also include permanent all-wheel drive, a load-sensing hydraulic system with the PTO on the flywheel side, a variety of trailer couplings and optional type-approval for use as an agricultural or forestry tractor unit.
The design benefits are clear to see from the MAN agricultural semitrailer tractors’ ability to be used all year round, both on the road and in the fields. In particular, agricultural contractors appreciate their versatility. If there are no more transport tasks to be carried out in agricultural applications such as arable farming, harvesting and manure spreading, the MAN can be con-verted into a construction vehicle or a winter service vehicle later in the year by changing the semitrailer and tyres.
At the exhibition stand, MAN Engines will be showcasing engines for agricul-tural machinery and energy production, including a world first: an inline-six with a displacement of 16.2 litres. This was specially designed to drive pow-erful agricultural and commercial machinery.
