Truckline launches 700mm wide Truckmate mudguards
Truckline has announced it is now stocking Truckmate’s new MG700 Mudguard. With a width of 700 mm, the new addition from Australia’s most trusted name in truck mudguards and mudflaps is the only injection moulded mudguard made to this specification in Australia.
Truckmate Business Development Manager, Lee Annett, said 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 amongst 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,” said Lee, adding the MG700 guard will cater for all makes featuring the wider profile tyres.
Lee 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 said, adding the design provides similar width clearance to the European style “3 piece” mudguard seen on Scania trucks in Australia and is compatible with all truck brands.
Like all Truckmate Mudguards, the MG700 product is injection moulded from the highest quality UV-stabilised, impact modified polypropylene, and the company is proud to have been manufacturing in Australia for almost 30 years.
“We’re proud to be a locally-owned company and to conduct our manufacturing processes here in Australia,” said Lee.
Truckline General Manager Mick Henderson said the MG700 ticks the box for Truckline for many reasons.
“We’re committed to providing customers with a range of high quality products and Truckmate has been a trusted name in the industry for a long time. Truckline stocks aftermarket parts for all makes and models of truck and trailer, and the new MG700 ensures we continue to cater to requirements for European brands,” said Mick.
“And the fact that Truckmate continues to manufacture here in Australia is really something to celebrate,” he added.
The MG700 mudguard is 700mm wide, 610mm high and 1280mm in length. It is compatible with all the current Truckmate mudguard accessories such as Hanger Brackets, Chassis Mount Bracket Offset tubes, boss caps and reflectors and the Spacer kit.
