THE Tam­worth Re­gional Coun­cil has added a UD MK6 to its fleet of more than 80 trucks. The MK6 ticked all the right boxes for the coun­cil with its fuel ef­fi­ciency and emis­sions com­pli­ance, and is be­ing de­ployed in con­crete main­te­nance and flood mit­i­ga­tion work. Ac­cord­ingly it has been fit­ted with a crane unit, tool­boxes and a tip­per body. ‘‘Our trucks of­ten have to cover a lot of ter­ri­tory so reli­a­bil­ity and fuel econ­omy are vi­tally im­por­tant,’’ Tam­worth tech­ni­cal of­fi­cer for plant and sup­ply Ja­son Love says. ‘‘In terms of re­duc­ing our car­bon foot­print, the coun­cil looks at ev­ery as­pect of the truck’s op­er­a­tion, from fuel con­sump­tion and green­house gas emis­sions to the length of oil change in­ter­vals and over­all ef­fi­ciency,’’ he says.
