In this issue we have a fascinating encounter with Volvo’s much vaunted Crawler gear equipped iShift and also take the Volvo Super Fuel Truck for a spin down the Hume.

We take the Scania NGT on another drive to see how it worked on a normal two lane highway piloting two of the new Swedes from Brisbane to Bundaberg.

We also slipped behind the wheel of Hino’s flagship 700 series with four times Australian rally champ Neal Bates for an epic drive from Canberra to Townsville with the Toyota 86 Race Series cars on board,.

We take a look at a big tipper dog operation in Sydney’s West running mostly Macks while also having a steer of Freightliner’s latest spec Coronado with a tipper dog configuration. We also drop into Paccar’s Bayswater facility to see the first locally built DAF come off the line, we might not build cars in Australia any more but the truck building business is in pretty good shape.

All that and a whole lot more so read and enjoy
