MAN Trucks delivered nine of its TGS 8×4 heavy recovery trucks to Sochi this week.
The trucks will be used to help keep traffic flowing by removing roadway debris and obstructions, such as accident vehicles.
The 41-ton, 4-axle, 480 hp trucks are designed to two buses, trucks and heavy trailers. The trucks contain two steel cable winches for recovery and drag force of up to 53 tons.
“The new TGS towing trucks will also be used to keep public transport running smoothly in the city. This is particularly significant at the moment and the Sochi bus fleet has been significantly expanded. Even low-floor buses with little ground clearance can be towed by the MAN TGS. Its main boom together with a low rider at the rear of the truck is able to lift 31 tones,” MAN stated.
