truck purchases on the up and up

Pandemic? What pandemic? Headwinds in the economy? Where? Well, certainly not in commercial vehicle sales. Perhaps the economic stimulus the federal government used last year to ward off both a significant Covid-19 contraction and a surge in structural unemployment will dissipate and with it the rising tide in sales seen in Truck Industry Council (TIC) T-Mark figures for February. But with employment close to full recovery and tax receipts bolstered by mining’s resurgence, there are reasons for optimism all around. That is what total commercial vehicle sales for last month of 2,769 appear to indicate. This is up from 2,448 the previous February, when the national economy was barely coasting, and less than 100 units behind February 2019’s 2,826, when the most recent truck sales boom was still reverberating. For the sake of…

truck of the future

A new 2021 Hyundai Xcient prime mover is hard at work doing heavy carting at an earthworks site in regional South Australia. This highroof 6x4 Hyundai Xcient L520 is powered by Hyundai’s six-cylinder, 520hp (388kW), 12.7-litre, intercooled turbo diesel engine producing 2,550Nm of torque. Hyundai Trucks Australia proudly brought the Xcient AMT with sleep cab to Australian roads last year. The Xcient combines Hyundai’s world-class diesel engine technology with proven European transmission in a truck that is built for performance in tough Australian conditions. The 12-speed ZF AS-Tronic transmission with four-stage retarder and hydraulic control clutch with air pressure assistance is accompanied by a simple steering column lever. The 27-tonne GVM and 60-tonne gross combined mass (GCM) rated Xcient is well suited to a range of tipper haulage applications. The Xcient also features…

the second coming

Let’s start with a bit of an admission here. I’ve been really excited about doing this story. I first spotted this awesome-looking F600 at the Gatton Mack Muster back in the day. For those unaware, there used to be a time when we were able to have things called ‘Truck Shows’ – glorious events where people would bring their pride and joy to display. Fans from far and wide would come to appreciate some exquisite machinery. Sharing laughs, taking photos, spilling half the sauce from their dagwood dogs down the front of their Kenworth shirts. It was a simpler time. A happy pre-Covid time. One of these long forgotten ‘Truck Show’ events was a Mack Muster up in Queensland. For a Bulldog fan like me it was heaven. From all around…
