Manchetts special edition MAN recovery truck.
Celebrating Mr & Mrs Peter and Anne Manchetts' 50th wedding anniversary this May and being in business 50 years since 2011 Manchetts Recovery have introduced a new special edition MAN interstater MK6H maxi reach low line heavy recovery vehicle to their fleet.
Director Sean Manchett says “heavy recovery operator Sam Neal, recently asked his partner Phili to marry him and she said yes so we named the truck he drives and operates after her. Not many young men seem to get married these days and out of respect for Sam and Phili we thought it would be very fitting since we are celebrating 50 years in business and mum & dads 50th wedding anniversary this year.”
The MAN chassis is an Interstater Mk6 H Maxi reach low line the lowest and longest under reach on the world market, this unit is fitted with twin 30,000lb winches along with rear hydraulic stabilizer legs to aid in the winching and recovery of broken down and accident damaged vehicles.
Along with these impressive features the vehicle is fitted with a Pioneer axle which is manufactured by Boniface to give increased lift and tow performance and to keep the overhang to a minimum.
The custom designed and made body compliments the chassis and is tailored to suit each individual operator’s needs and requirements. Stainless steel is used in the manufacture of the body together with coach style locks and internal hinges giving the truck smooth lines that complement the MAN chassis.
A Stealth flyer and high body give the truck the presence to turns heads wherever it goes and is a fine addition to the growing fleet of over 50 vehicles at Manchetts’ Rescue and recovery in Burwell Cambridgeshire.
