    Yep, last time I was there in September 2018. They are liquidating rapidly though. A lot of trucks are out.

    situation according google maps from the last years, a horrible clean, neat, and empty space.

    Compare this, below, with the situation from an early image from a decade or more ago

    Especially have a look at the old image for the mess in front of the chimney stack. Now, that is completely empty, as you can see below.

    We hardly know anyone at MAN. Those spareparts staff is not amused searching parts for the "old" trucks
    But I ask at the www.kat-forum.de if anyone has an idea for manuals in english.
    We will see about that.

    Tracer, where did you get that video and from which year is it? You were at the place personally, also in the back yard?

    The same line of trucks as on your video, taken from the other side left to right (see the special roof in the background of both video and picture). This was taken in May 2011.

    Robo I got the video off of You Tube. There are some interesting videos concerning Military Vehicles on You Tube. Also I'm not sure what year the video I posted was taken.

    I know. We are not supposed to use links. But this old man can not figure out how to down load this TM. Its the -20, Operators manual for the 10 ton, M1001, M1002, M1013 and M1014 MAN Tractor. The cab, and systems, along with most of the sub systems and most parts should be the same as the MAN Kat1 truck. All you smart guys can figure out how to download it, and put it in the TM forum. Sorry, I am up to my patooty in getting my taxes done and sent in.

    Not short but you can skip. Sorry, no other language available.

    Btw, had a call at my nearest MAN truck and bus center. The have no idea about manuals in english for the early Kat I.
    Nothing new came from the Kat forum.
    But I will go to the MAN workshop early in the morning these days and try to get one of the mechanics. Try to make it next week.
