Truck­mate puts colour into mud­guards

Owner Driver - - Tech Briefs -

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.
