DAVID MORGAN’S 2018 WESTERN STAR 4900
David Morgan, of DJ & KA Morgan Transport in Townsville, bought his new Western Star 4900 to replace a worn-out Mack Titan. The Western Star, nicknamed ‘Wandering Star’, has its own distinct full colour scheme in contrast to the two-tone appearance of Morgan Transport’s other rigs. Chris Moore is the lucky driver of the stunning Star, which has a 605hp Cummins X15 under the bonnet, hooked up to an 18-speed ’box. Other items worth mentioning are the Meritor diffs with a 4.56 ratio, Neway ADZ air bag suspension and a 48-inch sleeper. It’s rated at 140 tonne and runs out of Townsville to all points west with three trailers hanging off the back.
