Kevin Baker has been a truck driver for 30 years, and since October 2020 he has been the sole “landlord” of his employer’s new and powerful flagship model. Naturally, he is proud and happy that his boss chose him to drive the new MAN TGX 26.510, which is adorned with Hammond Transport’s traditional silver and blue paint finish. Because, in addition to the eye-catching exterior design with chrome illumination strips on the roof, revolving beacons and compressed-air horns, Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels and accentuated MAN and lion motifs, the technology and comfort in the cab’s interior are equally impressive: From the leather-covered, ergonomically designed multifunction steering wheel with multiple adjustments, to the 12.3-inch colour display with HD resolution, satellite navigation and MAN SmartSelect infotainment controls – Kevin can draw on a wealth of technical resources. And what’s more, he is delighted with the luxurious fittings in his new abode: stunning Alcantara upholstery, dimmable LED night lighting, DAB radio and a refrigerator beneath the bunk. Thanks to the high-quality, 110 mm cold foam mattress, Kevin can get an excellent sleep and starts the next working day feeling well-rested. “I love the freedom that my job affords me and the fact that I am always out and about. I get to know so many people and places. Spending all day in an office is definitely not something I would enjoy,” he says.

“We started driving MAN trucks in 1992 and have stuck with them ever since. They ensure a high level of reliability, competitive operating costs, value for money and a high level of comfort,” says Kevin’s boss Terry Hammond, Managing Director of Hammond Transport.

 

Another aspect that is extremely important to Terry Hammond is the safety equipment of his vehicles: “Safety is an important topic in every department of Hammond Transport and the safety of our employees is our priority at all times. Both in terms of standard and optional equipment, MAN has certainly taken up a market-leading position in this respect given the fact that our new flagship model is packed with advanced features. As an operator, it’s a great comfort to know that both our drivers and other road users are safe.”

After more than two decades in which Terry and his company have put their faith in MAN vehicles, he is also very satisfied with the latest purchase: “We are thrilled with our new MAN TGX flagship model. It looks fantastic and Kevin has really embraced the new technology and, judging by the fuel returns, he is obviously putting it to good use.”
