july truck sales keep pace

Commercial vehicle sales continue to defy turbulent times in Australia and threaten historical records, Truck Industry Council (TIC) T-Mark figures reveal. In an Olympic month it’s hard to avoid sporting idioms, with July’s 3,296 monthly and 23,216 year-to-date (YTD) sales neck and neck with the pace set in 2018 (3,344/23,314) and ahead of 2019 levels (3,194/22,083). Individually, perennial gold medallist Isuzu recorded 756/5,524 sales, slightly less than 838/5,557 in 2018, while Hino maintains its strong market share – 464/3,667 compared with 2018’s 465/3,125. Fuso, third overall with 398/2,577, drops slightly in the same period (421/2,449). HEAVY-DUTY Another four-figure month for heavy vehicles (1,021/6,811) is impressive but not quite enough to make up ground on 2018 (1,088/7,908). Kenworth tightens its grip here, well above Volvo: 211/1,414 against 162/880. While neither quite match 2018 levels (218/1,551 for Kenworth and…

Scan with your Smartphone camera to check out this deal! 2015 Kenworth K200–6x4 Cummins E5 Manual 1,315,000km $159,000 Derrimut, VIC 03 9998 4888 The word ‘icon’ is worked very hard these days but it suits the model down to the tread. And few publications more than Deals on Wheels and its sister publication ATN can give prospective buyers such an unrivalled insight into this model’s attributes through their Clash of the Titans video series, where it went up against a Volvo FH16. That was in 2015, the same year that this truck rolled off the Kenworth line in Bayswater, Victoria. And this one, at 70 tonne B-double rated, looks just as good as new. The manual 6x4 prime mover is punched by a Cummins e5 engine and has cruised along on Kenworth’s Airglide suspension for all its 1,315,000km of travel. As the images…

Scan with your Smartphone camera to check out this deal! 2012 Mack Granite Mack MP8 SCR Engine 12 Speed mDrive Auto Only 637,000km $72,500 Moama, NSW 02 8315 0185 This day-cab Mack Granite prime mover is big, bold and dressed in dark blue (and chrome). It certainly has presence. The 2012 model is one of the New Breed design that was unveiled a couple of years earlier at the brand’s Weapons of Mass Construction event devised to highlight the performance of Mack product in the rugged environments of the mining and construction industries. And it absolutely looks the part in muscling up against even its newest siblings. The New Breed featured improved in-cab sound-proofing; thicker, noise-absorbing floor mats; and a cab that meets the international crash standard ECE-29. Indeed, Mack went all-out to make the cab driver-friendly, providing a spacious and less-cluttered…

new surroundings

Welcome to our new home. You will notice that it is significantly different to our last place. But, once you are inside, so much of it is so very familiar. Certainly, we have lost some space but we are more focused on what it says on the tin – on industry news. The previous column warned change is always with us, even if we are left alone for a while, and the challenge was to roll with it and display resilience and fortitude in the face of it. This is what has happened. Was it a shock? Absolutely. Is anything missing that is more than cosmetic? Not really. Subscribers who like their news more immediately in daily doses will still get it through the website, fullyloaded.com.au and through the ATN newsletter. Those who prefer to digest…

Ahhh, so what do fashion houses know about haulage? And how much fun can an extra ‘s’ provide? We are sure the people at Eastern Iron’s potential new partner, Pentarch Logistics, will put them on the right track and not too much confusion will have arisen. Why should they? Well, according to the miner’s stock exchange announcement, Princess Highway will be used to get ore from Gippsland to Port of Eden. “Sure,” smirked the wife of our mining haulage snout, “colourful floral prints on all those truck-and-dogs.” We were non-plussed until she explained that Princess Highway does dresses from trendy inner-city Abbotsford in Melbourne. Still, perhaps Eastern Iron is on to something. Princess Highway offers “free shipping for aus/nz orders over $99AUD”. Pentarch may want to take the issue seriously. Place it…
