SRT Logistics reflects on first Cat truck

The first Cat CT630 on-highway truck now has more than three years and over 600,000 km under its belt. Tasmanian transport fleet, SRT Logistics, reflects on the experience.

“It immediately went to work and hasn’t missed a beat since,” said SRT Logistics’ Jim Miller, who took delivery of the CT630 model in November 2010. “We’ve operated quite a lot of Cat truck engines over the years and there’s no question the service from William Adams has been a large part of the reason for that.”

According to Miller, his liking for Cat engines is what led to SRT’s purchase of the world’s first Cat-branded on-highway truck, which is powered by a C15 engine rated at 550 horsepower.

“The decision to buy the Cat truck had nothing to do with wanting to be first with a new brand,” he said. “It just happened that way. What I wanted was a Cat engine. Simple as that, and the engine has given us no issues whatsoever.”

Currently, SRT Logistics uses the Cat CT630 truck to haul B-double loads twice a day between Hobart and Launceston.
