Holiday (2)...The Kaimais

On our way from Putaruru to Tauranga, there had been an accident on the Kaimai hill road. This slowed traffic down considerably, but also bunched it up so that I didn't need to wait long between trucks when taking photos.
2015 Freightliner Coronado 8 wheeler with 8 wheeler trailer too.
This common set-up known as "Quad-quad".

Traffic was down to one lane, so there was a backlog.... both directions.

2017 540hp MAN with 5 axle trailer.

2012 Volvo FM, hauls a load of crushed cars.

2011 Western Star 4864FX tipper and trailer.

2011 Hino 700 tipper and trailer in Regal gold.

2006 Kenworth K105 8 wheeler tractor with 4 axle semi-trailer and 40ft container.

Another load of logs heading for the port at Mount Maunganui.
2010 Kenworth T408 with appropriate rego.

It doesn't seem that long ago that a DAF was a rarity in NZ,
but now that they are part of  PACCAR, rigs like this 2017 CF85.510 are everywhere.

Scanias are also very popular and not only as a highway truck.
This 2016 R620 doing great service as a logger.

Nicely presented 2011 Western Star 4884FX pulling two short containers spread over 10 axles.
