Shropshire dealer takes on Tatra Truck imports

J&R Millington of Whitchurch, Shropshire, has been appointed as a dealer for Czech-made Tatra Trucks and hopes to sell the four- and six-wheelers into the agricultural market.

Tatra has a strong heritage in trucks and specialises in off-roaders for agriculture, forestry and mining, which are mostly powered by Paccar MX11 or MX13 engines that range from 360hp to 510hp.

Gearbox options include a manual ZF, or the choice of two automatics – a ZF AS-Tronic or an Allison-sourced set-up.
