Keep on truck­ing

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Front Page -

TWO mil­lion trou­ble-free kilo­me­tres is a long, long way in any lan­guage, but for four Hino trucks owned by Bourkes Trans­port in Ta­ree, NSW, it’s lit­tle more than a spin around the block. All four have topped two mil­lion kilo­me­tres de­liv­er­ing news­pa­pers along the coast be­tween Syd­ney and Bris­bane, and are still go­ing strong. The trucks travel an av­er­age of 400,000km a year and stop only for driver changes and ser­vic­ing. No ma­jor com­po­nents in any of the trucks have been re­placed or re­con­di­tioned— the big­gest re­pair on any ve­hi­cle was a front brake lin­ing re­place­ment for one of the FD Ranger Pros.
