Hmmm! Rex is obviously working flat out making a quid!
Was hoping for a few 'last hurrahs' to wind down the year in the what has almost become required reading, the Yank Vs Euro V'bus battle.

Good Afternoon Gentlemen.
We have just taken delivery of our first two 700s with the new gearbox, now listen very carefully Swishy. Just so our drivers don't get it wrong, when we select the deep low gear you can also select your speed on the cruise control. Add 200 + tonnes release the brakes, a little squeak from the Michelins and we roll away at idle maintaining a speed of less than 2 k/h. Say what you like we were grossing just over 250 tonnes slight uphill about 2% the Volvo lifted off at idle. I have seen a large number of trucks moving off from a start with large loads, nothing matches the new 700 with this gearbox. As for White Rock Wind Farm located at Glen Innes we not only have the challenge of the 720 major loads from Newcastle there are 80 Tower sections from Portland Victoria to come via Newcastle. Road modifications for the project between Newcastle and Glen Innes is now approaching $200,000.00. Part of the reason I have been quiet is due to our current workload.

Swishy mate
Yes I guess a grey Holden motor would be a step up from your so called screaming two strokes. No doubt you have had to take the Holden out to recover one or two when the noise stops and won't get going again.

My late Father used to tell me that if parts are widely available for a vehicle it is indicative the vehicle needs all those parts around the country and is thus an unreliable piece of rubbish.

My own experience with Volvo's tells me they don't consume too many parts. Currently working with one that has 1.4million K's on it and hasn't had the heads off or any internal engine work done to it.

This truck is making the owner a wealthy man as it rarely has downtime and the few parts its needed have been readily available and fairly inexpensive. No doubt the parts cost more than Yanky trucks but you get what you pay for, quality.

And no he doesn't wear high heals or paint his nails.
