Trucking Magazine  |  No.357 Balance of Power  


Scania’s V8 has achieved iconic status over the years – and rightly so. Its throaty roar can bring a grin to the face of any driver lucky enough to have one under the bonnet – and evoke envious glances from others whose trucks are not so well endowed. Operator Gareth McKechran, who runs Bynehill Caravan Park and Speedlift Auto Salvage on Scotland’s West Coast, is a firm fan of the Swedish manufacturer’s V8 – so much so that he’s been putting a 143 to work since 2001. We spotted the truck – kept in immaculate condition and featuring a rare Esteppe high-roof conversion – at Truckfest Scotland, where it was parked next to the firm’s latest acquisition: a Griffin-spec R730 Topline. The stage was therefore set for this issue’s rather unusual Truck on Trial, as we compare the 1988-registered classic against Scania’s latest flagship. An unfair comparison? Not really, as it turns out – and you can read our verdict, starting page 44. In the news this month, Mercedes-Benz has revealed its Euro 6 heavy-haulers. The Actros-SLT replaces the Titan, while Merc has also produced an Arocs-SLT variant (read more on page 6). DAF has also been busy with the launch of its Construction CF & LF specials (page 8) – and we managed to test drive the Dutch manufacturer’s latest standard Euro 6 mid- and lightweight models in Belgium (page 28). Also on test is Renault’s Range T long-haul tractor unit. With the French company’s entire Euro 6 line-up announced back in June, this is the first time the press have been able to get behind the wheel of the green machine – and you can find how the truck fared, starting page 36. There’s plenty going on elsewhere, too. We hitch a ride with heavy-metal band Slayer on a onetruck tour of Europe (page 58), speak to a mechanic about the relentless march of technology (page 66), and catch up with resto legend Graham Booth (page 90) – plus much more. Enjoy your read!

   Good mix, great read Reviewed Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Really enjoy reading this on the iPad. Didn't think it would be as good as the printed magazine, but now I prefer it this way
