Truckmate puts colour into mudguards
TRUCKLINE has announced it is now stocking Truckmate’s new MG700 mudguard. With a width of 700mm, the new addition is said to be the only injection moulded mudguard made to this specification in Australia.
Truckmate business development manager, Lee Annett, says the new product was developed to accommodate wider profile tyres, which are increasingly being used to provide greater grip and overall footprint on the road, particularly among European vehicles.
“With increasing use of the 295 wider profile tyre instead of the 11R standard tyre, including on the new Mercedes Actros, the new MG700 mudguard prevents rubbing, which in turn will prolong the life of the mudguard,” says Annett, adding that the MG700 guard will cater for all makes featuring the wider profile tyres.
Annett also explains that the MG700 boasts an additional 50mm internal width, which allows additional clearance on the wider profile tyres.
“The MG700 features our signature ribbing, which offers increased strength and dimensional stability, and combines with the additional clearance to deliver maximum spray suppression.”
He adds that the design provides similar width clearance to the European style “three-piece” mudguard seen on Scania trucks in Australia and is compatible with all truck brands.
