Then the melody poured from the “cassette” which was fastened to the instrument panel with an expander gum, which could not drown out the angry moan of the engine of the barely alive GAZ-52.

Some were lucky to work on a foreign car. Instead, a sick driver could be put behind the wheel of the Czechoslovak Avia. Large cab, independent front suspension and diesel under the middle seat. It's no secret that the Czechs made the car under the license of the French Savi, but only now, at the presentation of the new lightweight family, did I learn that the engine was developed and produced for the French by MAN. In the mid-60s, it turned out to be profitable: the French did not have their own diesel engine, and the Germans could not calmly see how successful light trucks of the rival Mercedes L319D in Europe were enjoying. So practically the same truck ran through the social camp under the Avia brand, and in the West - like Saviy and MAN at the same time.

In 1977, a new joint MAN project was launched, this time with Volkswagen. The MAN-VW G90 Series is easily recognizable by the “Volkswagen” cab from the LT-Eshka. In 1993, launched a new generation - L2000. Five years later, the car was modernized by adding the letter E - Evolution to the designation. Now it’s the turn of the next modernization of the “younger” series.

In the new range, trucks with a gross weight of 7.5, 8, 10 and 12 tons, nine wheelbases (from 3050 to 6700 mm) and a body length of up to 10 meters.

For TGL, they developed a new rear electronically controlled air suspension on two-cylinder half-springs. It is ordered by those who are not satisfied with parabolic springs. There are no options with brakes - ventilated discs even on dump trucks.

To increase the efficiency of braking and reduce wear of the brake mechanisms, a motor retarder helps. Here, as with the “elder brothers” - F2000 and TGA, the engine brake is paired with a tempomat - a device to maintain a given speed. The car rolled from the mountain - the fuel supply is automatically turned off and the moderator is triggered.

MAN has seriously upgraded the well-deserved D08 family of diesel engines. These four- and six-cylinder engines in the performance of Euro III, in addition to turbocharging and intercooler, received a common rail power system and four-valve heads. The power range of the "four" - from 150 to 206 hp, the "six" - 240 hp Agree, enough for a small truck. However, according to MAN engineers, both engines will soon add another twenty forces.

On the new light series are power steering and ZF gearboxes. Mechanical four- and six-speed gearboxes work with four-cylinder engines; an electronically-controlled six-speed TipMatic will be installed on request. Six-cylinder diesels are aggregated with nine-speed Eat gearboxes - with a turtle, four-speed main gearbox and planetary gearbox. In this configuration, the trailer can also be hooked to the truck, and on mountain streamers it will not become an obstacle. Depending on the engine power and future work, leading hypoid axles with different gear ratios and differential locks will be offered. All boxes can be equipped with a power take-off.

A new cab was designed for TGL, giving it a resemblance to the flagship TGA. The front panel, bumper, steps, wheel arches are made of plastic, steel panels and the frame are galvanized. To understand which motor is hidden under the cab, just look at the tunnel. If short - “four”, by order they put a seat for the second passenger on it, if long, almost to the panel - “six”.
