MAN TGS 18.510 4x4 BLS and Fliegl ASS 298 Agro-Truck: German road train

MAN is offering an agricultural truck for farmers and contractors needing to shift produce over longer distances. And now Fliegl has also developed a push-off trailer to match. Running on new Alliance tyres, is the outfit as at home in the field as it is on tarmac?

Fuel consumption must be one of the major plus points for using a truck to shift loads on the road compared to a tractor and trailer combination. Higher legal payloads and faster speeds are also big attractions. Yet there are also disadvantages such as small tyres, increased ground pressure and not enough traction when things start to get greasy.
