Re: milk truck
Hi Tas. Here this trailer is a 'super b'. This trailer should hold 22 000L each. So it will stop at 3 to 6 farms (Depending on the day and route the truck is on) to pick up then back into the city to unload.

Re: milk truck
Thanks Russ,

It looks a bit bigger than our b-doubles. I have seen the drivers drop off the rear part of the combination if they have to go into a smaller farm, or to a farm where there is limited space to turn around.

One of the big milk companies here called Fonterra runs at least 3-4 of these b-doubles (possibly more, I am not sure).

I did read a month or so back of B- triples being introduced here for freight & logs, so whether or not these will be used for milk haulage, I am not sure.

Re: milk truck
Yeah, that´s what they do around here, too. They park their trailer on a farm with enough space or in a parking lot and then collect the milk with the truck, pump it into the trailer and fill the truck again. Of course the trucks and trailers around here haul only 16000 litres each.

Re: milk truck
Yes, it makes good sense doing it that way Einachser. Some of our country roads here arent the best either, so arent really made for big b-doubles, due to being narrow, windy or a bit rough.
