Another Selection of Truck Photos

M.Chamberlain was the operator of this Australian model International F4870 loaded with new Chep pallets. Note the HA Viva parked behind.

A 1988 Scania R142M being unloaded by hand at Foodtown Lower Hutt.

This 1987 Scania T112H (H denoting the heavy duty chassis) has a load of logs on flat decks at Fox Glacier.

Riccarton Borough Electricity Supply operated this 1981 Bedford TL with Palfinger  in the Christchurch area. Although TK Bedfords were a very popular truck in NZ, TLs were quite rare as at this stage we had entered the Japanese truck era and General Motors dealers were supplying Isuzus with Bedford badging.

This Hall's refrigerated B-train is awaiting a ferry crossing to the North Island at the Picton terminal. The truck is a 1987 International SF2370.

A 1986 Mack G290GT Midliner in the livery of Johnson & Johnson.

Speedlink Parcels was a division of New Zealand Railways. A 1988 Isuzu CXZ167TC snapped at a truck display at Hutt Park.

"The Homestead" at Ward (northern South Island) is the setting for this 1986 Mitsubishi 415PPR of Gill's, filling up with stock to go the slaughterhouse.

One of Don Bell's all Benz fleet. This one a 2244 parked in Palmerston North.

A Scania R143M of Rudd Transport at Masterton Motor Lodge.

Another R142M. This one an 8 wheeler of 1986 vintage, operated by Waverley-Patea haulage in typical NZ stock truck configuration is parked at Faulknor"s Service Station in Masterton.

At one stage, Herb Renall's all Mack Ultra-liner fleet also included this logger. Seen here parked at his former Masterton depot in Ngaumutawa Road, where the Vehicle Testing Station is now located.
