Hope it has a full harness seat belt. It looks like the cab is leaning forward.

From a drivers point of view , this is honestly the best truck I've driven



Thats heck of a recommendation, although Im not surprised at all

As much as I do like the Yanky iron they built by a black smith
Even Yanky farm tractors really arent a patch on European machinery for build or reliability

Couple of local jobs this week.
Another 410sar out to Bairnsdale.
Little twin steer day cab with an 18speed went well.
I’m really liking the updated interior on these 410/610 … and the doors are 100 times better than other Kenworths.

Really depends on the job.. being in places like Bairnsdale and Horsham this week iv been catching an Uber to the train station then vline train home..

Otherwise Uber /public transport to the airport…

Honestly, the public transport bit is far from my favourite part of the job lol

But if that’s my only gripe I think I got it pretty good lol

Years back when operating a back hoe in and around Sydney I had the same problem as they never floated your machione from site to site so at the end of each day on a new job you had to make your way back to your car. Problem solved by buying a small trail bike that fitted in the front bucket and any extra trenching buckets either were up front with the bike or hanging off the rear bucket.

Cheers mate..

I guess nothing really wrong with em , I just found a bit more wind noise on the doors in c509 and t909 and so on.
Plus I often found I’d have to slam doors on em a couple times to get too close properly..
