Development of the M.A.N HX 4x4 range of trucks was first announced in 2003 being a direct replacement for the British MOD's mid range 4x4 fleet of vehicles.
The HX60 is a good example of the merging of military and civilian ideas with the main drivetrain being based on the civilian TGA range of trucks producing the benefit of providing commonality of parts, the modular military cab is used on both the HX and the SX range.
The 326hp engine is positioned in the conventional way which is longditudinally between the chassis, whilst the radiator has been placed to the left hand side behind the cab the benefit being that it offers less risk of damage or contamination by mud thrown up by the vehicle whilst wading or crossing poor terrain.
Also by placing the radiator outside the confines of the engine bay or cab it permits the use of a larger radiator which is benefiticial when operating in more tropical zones.
With a 6,000kg capacity the HX range offers a better payload than their lighter capacity predecessor the Leyland DAF T244 and T45, it is also air portable via C-130 / C-17 or similar with little or no preparation.
These trucks use a ZF automatic transmission to provide 12 forward and 2 reverse gears making them a much more pleasant vehicle for the operator, the comfort of air conditioning has also been provided which is a huge benefit for operations overseas in warmer climates.
Released from the British Army for resale these trucks have already been purchased for use in some right hand drive countries for private use and it is hoped that they will be seen as ideal vehicles for use in humanitarian aid programs, food aid programs as well being considered as potential upgrades to outdated fleets of vehicles as operated by friendly country's to the UK and EU including:
Australia, Bermuda, Botswana, Cyprus, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Jamaica, Japan,
Kenya, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore,
South Africa, Thailand, Uganda ,Zambia
If you are uncertain, start typing the country name into the box below and it will provide the details for the country selected
These trucks are available in quantity with sub 1,000km mileage, some with just a few 100kms which still have the plastic on the seats so they are as near to new as could be purchased and represent a tremendous saving on going to the Manufacturer and buying new.
