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.
