Finally some Scania's... I'm getting sick of all the DAF trucks... Just everywhere you go, you see DAF truck or parts of DAF trucks...


But what can you do if you just live a mile from the factory?

I noticed the last pic of the fire truck which along with your comment brought a wry smile, via memories of the '03 Canberra bushfire disaster. IIRC our city's fire service operated eight similar Scania (Type 3 & 4) pumpers on the day. While in action, three of those Scanias ceased to function because a design inadequacy caused the motors to catch fire, which is hardly desirable for a fire truck is it?

An abridged extract from the Coroner's Inquest:
'The urban fire service experienced difficulties with its Scania pumpers, which displayed a design fault. Two appliances broke down [and damaged] as a consequence of this defect; a third was destroyed. It has since been ascertained that similar problems have been experienced in other jurisdictions. Negotiations are continuing with the manufacturer.'

(btw another two Scania pumpers were also disabled, leaving only three of the original eight units intact)

I have a neighbour that drives toxic fluids around europe for a international transport company. The company bought three of these Scania's. The DAF's they had before them had never broken down in 8 years (very long for a truck). The new Scania's broke down once a month. They suffered from the weirdest faults one can imagine. From a failing speedometer to a complete electrical blackout. IIRC he had a broken front axle (while simply driving on the autobahn without major bumps or something ). He also overheated it quite often in the high alpine pass-routes (Simplon,Brenner etc.) he told me.

Now he has a Volvo.He has never broken down in four years with it now.

Have these been re-sized or they don't come from the official media site? Because I've been to the media site and the pictures are huge, sometimes even in the 4000x3000 range.

Any stories about the "un-realeability" of the trucks?

Me too. Years ago I used to get paid for driving semis. Big trucks are a gas to drive, and its not because they're easy. Quite the contrary

Take acceleration:

Around here most of the roads have a 100km/h top speed limit. From standstill your average thoopercar can accomplish this velocity in a completely effortless 4 or 5 seconds .. then the party's over, as far as acceleration goes. Too easy, blink and you'll miss it. Many of them no longer offer the fun of operating a clutch pedal; likewise real gearlevers have morphed into electro fun-buttons and flap-paddles

But when driving those big bastards the enjoyment of shifting gears while stretching out a motor for maximum effect just goes on & on
