Toll introduces new A-double-rated Kenworths

Toll's new Kenworth T610 SARs in Adelaide.

Two new Kenworth T610 SARs have been delivered to Toll in South Australia.

Operating under Performance-Based Standards (PBS), the new Kenworths have been assigned A-double duties for bulk fuel cartage.

One of the trucks will deliver jet fuel from a fuel terminal to Adelaide airport.

The other is transporting fuel across the broader network in metropolitan Adelaide and South Australia.

The jet fuel tanker combination is expected to travel approximately 1,300 kilometres each week, delivering around 3,000,000 litres.

The second vehicle, meanwhile, covers anywhere up to 4,200kms each week.

These new vehicles will replace ageing Kenworth trucks and mark the first two Euro VI engine vehicles to be used in its South Australia fuels fleet.

The T610SARs have been chosen to ensure compliance with the requirements and maximise available payloads.

Both are powered by a X15 Cummins engine rated at 525 horsepower and 97-tonne GCM.

All Toll standard safety features are fitted, including a driver fatigue and on-board telemetry system.

Deployment of the new Kenworth T610 SARs fits with Toll’s policy of investing in the latest available technology where possible.

The drivers are reportedly happy with the comfort and handling.

Kenworth’s reliability in performing the task and the service back up provided by the local dealership, CMV Trucks, made these the best choice according to Toll.

“The existing Kenworth fleet has operated reliably without any significant downtime issues,” said Shaun O’Flaherty, General Manager Global Fleet Management, Toll Group.

Toll currently operates 15 Kenworth prime movers in the South Australia fuels fleet.
