Iconic prime mover re­launched

Big Rigs - - SPECIAL REPORT -

COM­MER­CIAL ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­turer Daysworth In­ter­na­tional has re­launched the Di­a­mond Reo truck brand – an iconic heavy duty prime mover that graced Aus­tralian high­ways in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Daysworth In­ter­na­tional is un­veil­ing its Di­a­mond Reo Gi­ant, a 540hp 6×4 prime mover – spec’d for in­ner city haulage – at in­au­gu­ral sup­ply chain expo, Me­ga­tran 2018. It is also show­cas­ing the Di­a­mond Reo Con­struc­tion range, which is rep­re­sented by a 8×4 tilt tray. The 8×4 is also avail­able as a tip­per, water tanker, hook lift and crane truck.

The Di­a­mond Reo trucks are avail­able to­day, turn-key for de­liv­ery.

The re-in­tro­duc­tion of Di­a­mond Reo prime mover has been a nine-year project for Daysworth In­ter­na­tional. The new gen­er­a­tion of the Di­a­mond Reo Gi­ant has been ex­ten­sively tested off­shore and in Aus­tralia since 2015. The new gen­er­a­tion of the Di­a­mond Reo road truck has proven it­self with over one mil­lion kilo­me­tres of test­ing in the harsh­est Aus­tralian road con­di­tions.

“We’ve run our 6×4 Di­a­mond Reo tray truck fit­ted with Palfin­ger with all com­bi­na­tions of loads,” said Ivan Ci­cak of MME Trans­port.

“The Di­a­mond Reo has per­formed ex­cep­tion­ally with high per­for­mance and com­fort.”

The Di­a­mond Reo range of heavy haulage ve­hi­cles will be sup­ported by 40 years of Daysworth ex­per­tise and a na­tional net­work of deal­ers un­der­pinned by a sub­stan­tial parts and ser­vice in­fra­struc­ture.

“The Di­a­mond Reo road trucks are an ex­cep­tional ad­di­tion to the Aus­tralian Trans­port net­work,” said Daysworth In­ter­na­tional Group Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Ivan Vo­danovich.

“With proven reli­a­bil­ity and per­for­mance, the Di­a­mond Reo road trucks are lead­ers in its class.”
