MAN Cat A1 15t 8x8 with Twistlocks

Condition: Mileage Hrs/Kms: 5,000 - 39,000 kms
Year of Manufacture: 1990

The MAN Cat A1 15t 8x8 container carrier to fit 20` container with Twistlocks 2.9mtr was developed by MAN trucks to accommodate loads with high centres of gravity.

The high ground clearance for rough terrain coupled with the wider axles makes this chassis cab suited to the addition of:
Water tanker truck 15,000 litre capacity.
Diesel tanker truck 15,000 litre capacity.
Drilling platform
Service unit for quarry work.
Standard all terrain cargo truck etc...
Container Carriers
ISO Tank Carrier
Cargo Carrier (using a flat rack)
Water Carriers
Service Trucks when fitted with our lube pallet


The condition of these trucks is as new with only 10,000 - 30,000km.
They have been used for testing systems only.

No strategic vehicle is more reliable and long-lived
The A1 series is probably the most mobile and reliable truck on earth. It is primarily deployed as a carrier for sensitive weapons systems, since its boxed frame structure does not pass on any torsion, even when driving at full speed in difficult terrain. It is the only truck with a loading interface on which a Patriot system can be mounted entirely without compromising mobility.
Vehicles in the A1 series are military trucks with strategic importance. Their rigid axles and boxed frame construction give them an unsurpassed record of mobility and reliability in any terrain.
It was scheduled for 30 years of use, making it the military vehicle with just about the lowest lifecycle costs of any in existence.

A strong basis - the ladder frame.
The body-friendly, low torsion ladder frame of the MAN CAT A1 8x8 is based on
the tried and tested series frame of the civilian TGA range and is
designed for service with a large off road proportion - reliability
built-in. It is made of high-strength, fi ne grain steel and has riveted
and bolted cross members and a steel bumper. Due to the low
torsion frame, comfortable and gentle transport is guaranteed.
The lateral acceleration acting on the platform or body is low.


MAN CAT A1 8x8 Comfortable and robust - the leaf suspension.
Like the frame the suspension has stood the test in many thousands
of MAN vehicles. The leaf suspension further developed for
the A1 & SX with long, wear-free, rubber mounted springs, large shock
absorbers and stabilisers absorb most ground irregularities.

Additional information:

Load area 7.2m x 2.44m
Load area 1.54m from ground
Ground clearence 0.41m
Max cruise speed 90km/h
Fuel tank capacity 400litres

These MAN`s are not to be confused with the much older 1970`s MAN 464 model 8x8 chassis.
These 1990`s trucks are far superior by way of design and manufacture.


In this configuration the vehicles have been outfitted with twistlocks to permit the carriage of a variety of palletised or containerised payloads.
