MAN TGS 40.540 - Bok Seng

Bok Seng from Singapore (SG) is deploying two of these sharp MAN TGS 40.540 heavy haulage trucks with 6x6-drive line. The trucks are mainly used to transport heavy cargos on towed platform trailers, but can also be used with normal trailers to transport e.g. crane components. The trucks came in the beginning of 2017 to Singapore.

The truck is powered by a MAN D2676, a 12.4-liter 6-cylinder diesel engine with a power of 397 kW (540 hp). The truck has a reinforced bumper to push or brake transports from behind, but in praxis this is not happinging very often. The truck is admited for transports up to 250 tonnes.

The truck has a wheel base of 3.9 + 1.4 meters. In the large opening behind the front axle are the battery, compressed-air tanks and a diesel tank installed.

The ballast box has a mass of 5 tonnes and can be reinforced with counterweight slabs to 25 tonnes. Below the ballast box is the cardanic fifth wheel visible.

On the driver's side are behind the front axle the Euro 5 muffler, the large diesel tank and the AdBlue tank installed.

Behind the cabin are the hydraulic oil tank, storage compartments and a large cooler for the WSK 440 torque converter installed. In front of the equipment tower is a large guard frame installed.

Attached is a 12-axle Scheuerle K25 platform trailer, composed out of two 6-axle modules. The cargo is a Menck MHU 1900S hydraulic hammer with a mass of 158 tonnes.

The cargo was loaded by the Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 and a Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1, both are also owned by Bok Seng.

The hammer would be transported later that night to another port. The heaviest and largest transports are in Singapore only carried out after 07:00 PM.

A very sharp combination of Bok Seng!
