Congratulations to LBRCA members Mick and Jo McCulloch from McCulloch Bulk Haulage who have taken delivery of their new Kenworth T610 SAR after successfully bidding on the most aerodynamic and fuel-efficient production truck every to carry the iconic Kenworth badge.
The prime mover, generously supplied by Brown & Hurley Coffs Habour thanks to Dealer Principal Graham Sebbens, was the centrepiece of the 2018 LBRCA/ALRTA Conference held in Coffs Harbour in March.
Industry suppliers including Alemlube, AEI Transport Insurance, BP Australia, Haultech Engineering, Barrup Bullbars, Teletrac Navman and Truck Art Trailers generously donated a range of high-quality extras to the vehicle.
“This vehicle is a game changer for industry and it will turn some heads and start conversation in truck stops all over Australia,” LBRCA President Lynley Miners says.
The prime mover is powered by the Cummins X15 Euro V engine with Advance Dynamic Efficient Powertrain (ADEPT) technology and includes a suite of electronic features that interact with the Eaton automated manual transmission.
The T610 SAR is built for the versatile Australian landscape and dynamically adapts to operating conditions to enhance fuel economy with no impact on productivity.
Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with braking, Collission Mitigation as well as the standard EBSS safety systems are now standard and will ensure that the McCulloch team are operating under the safest conditions on our roads.
The LBRCA extends special thanks to Graham Sebbens and Alex Milne from Brown & Hurley Coffs Habour for their generosity, time and efforts making this delivery seamless as well as the generous suppliers who are dedicated to supporting an industry that supports them.
