Issue Cover

PowerTorque  |  Issue 44 Deceber - January 2012  


The technology race continues almost unabated, and, with this issue, we look at some of the really impressive moves being made by manufacturers with engines and drivelines.

We know our readers want some early indication about how the new Detroit Diesel engine range is performing, and here we continue our look at both Western Star and Freightliner products featuring the 15-litre DD15. Dave Whyte joins an operator evaluation of rigid tipper and dog application with the DD15, and Dave and I both teamed up for a Melbourne/Sydney/Melbourne run in the brand new Freightliner Argosy, complete at 62 tonnes and running with curtainsider trailers in B-double configuration.

Although Dave Whyte has already driven the Scania 730 hp R-Series, it was my turn to give this a trial, running down the east coast, again as a B-double. If there’s an easier way to move goods from A to B, I’ve not yet found it, as, with that amount of power and torque on tap, it spoils you for anything else.

Also for the traditionalists, we had to have a drive of the latest Kenworth K200, and, with the approval of Garrie Payne of Fruithaul, I joined company driver, Greg Vaughan, for a run from NSW up to the Brisbane Fruit Markets. For those who have not been in a recent K-cab, you’re in for a major surprise. Comfort levels have increased, noise levels have reduced, space is now usable, and the gearshift and position of the stick is the best it’s ever been

Our major feature in this issue covers an interview we completed with William Stobart, head of the Eddie Stobart operation in the United Kingdom. If you are wondering what relevance a Pommie truck operator has to do with the unique conditions of Australia, then read on.

The stories keep coming in this issue, and for those who like operator profiles, check our feature on husband and wife team, Cheryl and Steve Read.
