Fuck me, that's grim. Even if dicks trying to get out of laybys is an occupational hazard (as is people flinging stuff off bridges at you, which was going to be probably inappropriate 'witty' response), that's far beyond the pale.

Anyhoo...spotted this in passing the other day. Marathon cabbed rigid I thought: most unusual. Upon closer inspection (and after scrambling through the nettles) it's odder than that. Longish wheelbase double drive with a heavy, fabricated front bumper with heavy duty hitch. And AEC badging. And what looks to me from a distance, like a 14L Cummins with a Jake Brake. Gawd alone only knows what it is: I'm guessing somebody's home brewed heavy haulage/recovery mutt.

If ever there was a lorry that needed triple wipers, the Bedford TK / KM was it.

4 series Scania too, 2 wipers leave a bloody great section unswept beside the drivers side A pillar, wonder if they've sorted that on the new one, my MAN helpfully* leaves the front down mirror viewing area unswept.

4th and 5th gen Scannys were bad for popping their washer hoses off too iirc. Once the already tight hose age hardened a bit, it would be washing the radiator grille. Easy fixed, but the point at which I realised the accountants had taken over: an extra 2" of better quality hose wouldn't break the budget would it?

Yep, had that, and didn't early 4 series heater cables seize up and pop off at the valve end, it was case of stopping lifting the bonnet and adjusting the valve by hand till you could get a new cable fitted, had several fitted on me car transporter cabs.

Spoiling a basically good ship for a few pence worth of what would still be cheap items makes no sense.

 

I'm due a new motor around Feb/March when my current 62 plate MAN goes back, i shall be sorry to see it go, better lorry than many say just wrong engine specced for perma 44 ton pulling, i've requested a Scania already because there's a danger otherwise it could a fuckin DAF with Arsetronic (dear Lord no), and i'm not sure i could stand seeing me last 4 years out before retiring with another shit gearbox, the request met with a positive response at the time but we'll see what actually happens when the time comes, hoping for the new model 5 series cos according to the Scanny techs they've fitted a brake to the layshaft now which will speed up gearchanges, again we'll see.

I get a new unit tomorrow, well I say new but it's a 14 plate MAN that's direct from MAN having been refurbished and I can't say I'm looking forward to it as the last batch of these that arrived about a year ago are dreadful things.

The worst issue is the gearbox, hopeless when you need slow speed control like when reversing onto a loading bay where you gently apply the throttle and the thing suddenly lurches, makes it look like you can't drive. They also suffer from lack of traction in most situations. These are 62 plate machines so I'm hoping the 14 plate might be an improvement, on the plus side it's a 480 where the last batch are 440's.

I fear the worse and will be missing my Merc Actros before the week is over!

You'll be fine with the 480, its the 440 egr with the waterworks problems.

 

I'd plump for another MAN if given the chance but apparently we're not having any more, had they specced correctly at the time with an engine big enough for our weight and 364 days a year day and night operation they would have been fine.

 

Agree with you about the gearbox, its shit to drive, i drive it manual all the time which helps my sanity a bit, and being a 6x2 soon as i need some traction i dump the mid lift air which makes life better and also depending on surface turn ASR off too, that makes the difference between getting into one particular blind side uphill gateway in reverse fully freighted, cos we've had Scania clutches destroyed there when drivers haven't dumped either the air or switched off TC, also turning those off helps when pulling out at junctions and on any tight turns, handily MAN's raise the mid lift completely even fully loaded after about 20 seconds, helps no end with maneuvers.

 

You mention the clutch judder when maneuvering, have yours done around 500k?, if so get someone to check the clutch release bearings, ours failed one after another around that time 450 to 550k leaving you with no drive whatseover, i asked the dealer to look at my clutch about 3 months before my release bearing failed, judder was excessive, obviously that inspection was clinical in its ignoring.

I dunno what company as I can't remember but I saw a R730 on the M18 last week, it had some massive custom chrome exhaust with right 6 or 8" pipes in a vee & a 2ft square V8 sign in the middle. Sounded bloody nice.

 

Oh & it was mostly blue.
