Bo­ral judg­ment

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Front Page -

Bo­ral has cho­sen Al­li­son au­to­matic trans­mis­sions for two of it lat­est truck pur­chases: three West­ern Star tip­per and dog com­bos and a com­pressed nat­u­ral gas Mack 8x4 con­crete ag­i­ta­tor. The trans­mis­sion choice for the ag­i­ta­tor is com­mon choice for the ap­pli­ca­tion, but the choice to go auto in the three West­ern Star 4864 FS2 6x4 tip­per and dog mod­els is some­thing of a sur­prise, but comes af­ter a trial over the past 18 months. ‘‘The driv­ers tell us the Al­li­son au­to­matic has made the truck far smoother, qui­eter and eas­ier to ma­noeu­vre in metropoli­tan traf­fic,’’ Bo­ral fleet en­gi­neer­ing man­ager Merv Row­lands says.
