MAN KAT

Postby Overlandkiwi » Wed Apr 29, 2020 8:22 am

Gidday all,

As my name suggests I am from New Zealand but based in the UK at this point.
My weapon of choice is a 1978 MAN KAT 6x6, it’s been a great reliable truck.
I’ve live on the truck off and on a number of times over the years.
I tend to travel anyway I can, whether it be by foot, motorbike, truck etc, as long as there is adventure involved.

Dale

Welcome aboard - nice truck! Bit quiet on here at the moment, not surprising under the circumstances, so nice to see a new member pop up :-)

Nice truck, a bit bigger/heavier than mine but a good choice of base vehicle

Hi Ivan,

It’s a very solid truck and weighs in at approx 18 ton fully fuelled and watered, the box has a steel frame pushing the weight up.
Deutz V8 12.7 Fuel consumption is approx 2 1/2-3 km per litre.
What are you driving at the moment?

At the moment a Fiat Ducato !
I am however slowly building a MAN L2000 - see the Tramp Truck build for more details.

The truck is coming along very nicely, look forward to seeing the finished product and the lay out of the interior.
