Going thru the gears in a CAT V8 powered 80 ton road train
Only watch this if you like big bore V8s and you've got good speakers with the volume cranked right up! Cab ride on the Nullarbor Plain in South Australia near the roadhouse. If you've ever wondered how long it takes to get up to speed @ 80 tons with 600 HP this will give you some idea. More vids to follow later.
V12 Detroit started for the 1st time in a long time
Mack with V12 Cummins
If someone can remind me what model truck this is, I'll include it in the description. It has a V12 Cummins motor, which I am told is like two NH220's in a V configuration. Not a very interesting video, and poor quality, but I thought it should be available.
UPDATE: This is a 1957 Mack LRVSW belonging to Aycock LLC of Hummelstown, PA. Aycock does rigging/hauling and industrial construction. As for the motor, I keep hearing NHV or NHVB, or 1710, was told initially and am inclined to believe that it is a V1486, being that the information was available at the time...however, I have no real clue.There was info taped to its window at the show, but damned if I'd read it...
I wish there was more info on these motors floating around on the web. All anyone seems to care about is Dodge pickups with Cummins diesels; no one knows where it all began...but isn't that why we go to Gerhart's every fall?
