Now I am sure there will be rat bag answers out there but some fact might get through
1 Does a detriot cam shaft spin at the same RPM as the motor ?

2 How many ratios are available in 915 or 1215 Roadranger beause is there an over lap ?

3 Was mentioned to me conversation that on a prime mover if the connection point was behind the axle you don't need a
Hc license?

4 Can you tow an A trailer on a HC license?

Plenty of questions sure there will be different opinions and other may have questions

Some people get mixed up on what you can drive on what licence type (Queensland)
Like between a MR and HR is not the weight but the axles other wise all but the same
MR includes A class LR vehicle
A bus or truck (including a prime mover or a mobile crane) over 8t GVM with a maximum of 2 axles
Note: You may also tow a trailer with a maximum weight of 9t GVM.

HR includes A class MR vehicle
A bus or truck (including a prime mover or a mobile crane) over 8t GVM with more than 2 axles
Note: You may also tow a trailer with maximum weight of 9t GVM.
An articulated bus (a bus that can bend in the middle).

I have HR and UD

Browny,,,

1) NFI.. I would assume so.. but you know what they say about Assume..

2)..Pretty sure this has been discussed few times in the past on here..

BUT. i reckon there's 2 ways of getting progressive changes out of a 15 speed..

A) Bottom 5 gears, then 4&5 in the Middle box, then all 5 in the Top Box =12 progressive shifts..

OR.
B.) 1,23 in the bottom Box then all 5 in the Middle Box then all 5 in the top Box = 13 progressive shifts. BISTBC

3)..Doubt that very Much.. But really Don't know..

4) As long It's ONLY the A trailer on It's own. No different than a normal Semi. But Once you Hook it all up though You'd need you MC licence..

If you have an .N.S.W. issued licence YES..

However if you have a Licence issued in (for example) Victoria where It's not necessary. you can still drive In N.S.W. with that Combination & they're legally obliged to allow it..

1. Yes, cam and crank gears are all the same size so speed is the same for both shafts
2. No idea, maybe just ditch it and get an 18.
3. Not in WA but then again most of the police wouldn't have a clue and probably could be baffled by bullshit if you get caught, there was one recently where a bloke got pulled and fined for not having a HC license when he was driving a hilux towing a fifth wheel caravan(they should be illegal anyway)
4.A trailer all good by itself. The best bet would just be to get an MC or is that just too hard in some parts of the country?
