    Scania V8 slashes fuel bills

    I reckon a Scania V8 powered IH 9900i would sell well down here in Road train & heavy haulage work... Wishful thinking I know........

    R model plowing thru water in Aussie

    Remote Diff & gearbox breathers are almost Standard fare in My part of the World.. Whenever I buy a S/H truck if It doesn't have 'em?? It very soon does.. i got a Quote on a New Mack back in the Winter Time, & the salesman & I ticked the Box for the remote breather package, can't remember how much extra I twas though...

    Beautiful Catastrophe III

    Pure W.A.G. is that the "dog" or some other "wildlife" walked over the Top of everything on the rack & shorted a Battery out causing a Spark & a chain reaction.. maybe???
  5. 296 million for 683 Trucks is $433,382.14 Each... Kevin, would that figure be the up front cost of each truck?? Or does It include Parts support/ect for the life of the Contract??

    another Jake brake question.

    Paul, I have a sneaking suspicion that "Newto" used to be the Australian Distributor for tecbrake..... Might be worth chasing up??
  7. Particularly Now when they're all Busy. I was quoted 16-18 weeks wait on a fairly standard Mack back in Sept. Start ticking Too many option Boxs or asking for something a bit "odd" They get a bit shirty with you for slowing the line down too much. unless of course if you want a batch of 'em....??

    another Jake brake question.

    Paul, pretty sure these guys sell a Copy of the Jake.. http://pacbrakeoem.com/products/brakes/compression-release-engine-brakes/ Cummins used to sell a "C" brake which was also a Knockoff of the real thing!!

    Mack Anthem Veteran Truck

    Like Kevin said, only grossing a Max of 36,287Kg. Also bear in mind It's Direct drive transmission. if an overdrive was used(.73) a 3.66 rear would give the same overall gearing in Top.. The main reason those quick Diffs aren't used here is that "Startability" is compromised too Much At our weights.
