Thanks Ray!! I keep on bothering my dad to get a new truck but he says that it is still a good truck with low kilometres on it. To tell you the truth I don't like it because it barley has any chrome on it and it is hard to keep clean with all the grease it gets on it from my dad working on it every week. It's a good thing that it does not break down a lot. I think the last time my dad took a day off to repair the truck was roughly 2.5 years ago. BUT I am proud to have a working truck not a show truck because a working truck gets you the big bucks. ;) :D :o

If it is in good shape and makes money then there should be no need to get another.
Chrome and shiny bits don't pay the bills.

Paccar
brand Daf
type XF 105 460



So i am sort off testdriving for the North-American and Aussie/NZ fellow truckers.It has the MX engine with Ad-blue,which will be on sale in the USA from 2010(please correct me if i am wrong)

ps i gross out at 97000pounds (legal) :evil:  :evil:  :evil:

Fangio can you tell me more about stability of those combination , i mean it is pretty short , do you drive 20ft tank or 25.6 or something like this?
how many L have those containers and are they always full?

there is one company in my area used to drive same kind of containers they have some extra short 2axle trailer only for 20ft they look pretty unstable to me

Ivan,my wheelbase is almost the same as a long trailer(only 1 meter shorter which just a little bit shy off a yard).
That trailer has TEBS(new generation EBS),ECAS(electronic airsuspension,which means the computer on it communacates with the computer in the truck),DPC(shockabsorvers that are linked to the level off loading,the heavier the load the more they work) and "old skool" big airbags.
So stability isn't a problem.(if you drive the right way)

Tank is picture is 31000L(8200 gallons).
No baffles(schalwande).
But they aren't the biggest ones we haul,we have 35000l (9250 gal) also,again without baffles.
And they are never full.(there is a legal reason for that)

I drive 20",25" and 30".And using a 20" chassis for this kind off work is long gone here(the weights are to high to haul the loads)
