I admit I had to go back and double check as I missed it. I was too busy trying to decide if it was extended, which I am sure it is. :cool:

Great set of pics, is the big volvo with the dipper off a 700 ?

Michael is the Volvo on I shift? I know the current 700hp FH16 only comes as an I shift Daz:)

michael 04-01-2011 08:01 PM

Re: p.p o`connors.heavy haulage
 
daz. no its a manual,auto`s are not much good on heavy haulage work. the gaffer as ordered a new scania 620,manual. michael

Exmayor 04-01-2011 08:10 PM

Re: p.p o`connors.heavy haulage
 
Totally agree with the comment on auto's and on theyre own theyre no good but put it through a torque convertor and theyre ok. I know Volvo will try and push the I shift for the big power tractors. Daz:)

I collecting an old 3c up from a farm a bit a go and had to reverse of the main road (country lane) down a small lane told Leaky to jump out and stop any traffic so i could go past the lane and back in so he did and tried to stop this car (lady driver) which just swerved post him and then realized she couldn't go any further (some pillock was trying to reverse a low loader down the lane

what can you do, don't you just love the fairer sex

143 :cool: Best model Scania ever built. Shame they spoilt their name with that scabby 4 series. Started to get it back with the 'R' series tho. Still not got the cab right tho but they are getting there.

Nice pics Michael-they had a 143 at our place when I started there in 94-the drivers loved it-I like the idea of the ejector trailer,how long does it take for the trailer to empty?

Very tidy looking outfit.

You do realise I'm now going to be looking differently at each and everyone of those half pipe trailers as I never clocked that they might be an ejector :cool:

Whats that duck? a 170 Doosan maybe ?

Re: p.p o`connors.heavy haulage
 
I got to say i have alway had a thing for the old 2 series scanias, i learned to drive an old 82H with a drawbar back in Zimbabwe years ago. Had the pleasure of driving a 113H 6x4 for a few years hauling LPG in a quad axle tanker. 23 Tonnes of gas , great for going bang if there was an accident, but need the extra axle to help with the weight of the tank barrel being so heavy.
Custom made and the end caps were pressed steel 25mm thick 2 metres in diameter, we had the pleasure of collecting six of them from a manufacturer in South Africa, these trailers took nearly a year to build and over ZW$1 000 000 each at the time was about 200 000 in 1988.

Damn thing weighed in at near on 20 tonnes empty.Especially like the R142H and then the R143H when they came out.
