Yes it slides back and forward.. Crate has been well customised to our specs.. With such an investment better to spend a little bit more now and get it how we want it, then forever curse ourselves for not getting it how we wanted it because it cost a bit more..
If anyone else wants to paint their truck such a nice colour... The colour is Orange X15 on the AS2700 colour chart.
Have it home and done a few trips in it... Certainly has some power.. Speed limiter is more restrictive then I thought it would be... it may do 102 at the most..
Gearbox is OK, but a bit overkill given the truck horsepower.. It is a PITA when unloaded in heavy traffic full of dickhead car drivers (like the clever driver today that decided to not bother to check if the intersection is clear before proceeding and got caught on the railway line)
The traffic light's setup in Rockhampton are atrocious these days.. They are creating traffic congestion..
When unloaded, I generally start in 3rd, then skip to 5th and then skip to 7th. A 5X2 speed box would be more suitable for us... Not sure why they went away from them...
Good brakes when dealing with the atrocious traffic lights, even when fully loaded...
Clutch is very very soft and a bit abrupt, starts to grab about an inch off the floor..
I think the adblue setup on this truck is all air operated.. There is no actual pump, but rather air injects the adblue... Should be a more reliable design, if done properly..
Fuel consumption averages around 3.4km/litre.. Even when empty fuel economy does not improve much due to the air resistance of the crate..
The truck is far more complicated then we require, but the choices these days are very limited..
