OZ Grain Truck
Road Train preparing for loading
Re: OZ Grain Truck
How many tonnes can you haul with those trailers? Also can
you give any more info on the truck like transmision,
engine, horsepower?
Re: OZ Grain Truck
Can it drive away on its own with that trailer, or do you
need a 4WD to pull it off the land till it's on the road??
Re: OZ Grain Truck
You can load up to 60tons (payload) to be legal on the
The truck can get out of the field pritty easy, as long he
don't get into a sandy patch. Once we had to hook of the
second trailer and pull the truck out with two 4WD's.
This Truck is a Kenworth K100 with, I guess Cat 425hp engine
and Spicer gearbox.
Re: OZ Grain Truck
nice rig ey, she's an old girl that one, the kenworth I
mean. She had a 400 horse 3406 Cat tied to a 18 speed
Spicer, she was rated to pull 120 tonne gross. She would
weigh bout 87 tonne gross and sit on a 100 clicks no worries
when loaded. We've since got rid of those old girls and now
run these triples, here is a Volvo F16(500HP)with what we
call a C train, we also run a twin steer rigid Iveco with a
550 horse Detroit pulling two dogs (trailers) and she
grosses 120 tonne when loaded. I'll send a few more pics in
Re: OZ Grain Truck
I have never seen a C train before. That is a nice looking
unit. Is there any restrictions on how long the trucks can
be. I am from Canada and I think there are some restricts
on the lenght of a vehicle here. I find it hard to believe
that the trucks can start moving when they are loaded in the
field. I have heard stories that trucks twist off the
driveshaft when the trailers are loaded to heavy in the
field when they start moving. Has that happened to any of
your trucks? I bet it is kind of tricky to back up those
