Australia - ROAD TRAINS parade 1
Road Trains filmati da Pasquale (castanoisabella) nel 1999 e nel 2004.
Filmed directly by Pasquale (castanoisabella) on 1999 and 2004.
I Road Trains sono automezzi formati da un trattore stradale che traina tre
o più semirimorchi.
Questo tipo di veicolo è diffuso soltanto in Australia, dove ormai sono
diventati una caratteristica, per trasportare le merci dal nord al sud del
paese, poiché le strade sono caratterizzate da lunghi rettilinei.
Sulla Stuart Highway, direttrice nord-sud che attraversa il deserto
australiano, non vi sono limiti nell'utilizzo dei road train, e quindi
attualmente è frequente vederne l'utilizzo, spesso anche contrassegnato da
uno scarso rispetto delle norme stradali.
Tuttavia, i road train rischiano ora di subire la concorrenza di una linea
ferroviaria, che ha il vantaggio della riduzione dei costi ed ha ottime
probabilità di affermarsi, soppiantando i road train.
In Australia esiste addirittura una gara sul numero di semirimorchi
agganciati a un trattore stradale. Il record attuale è di 36 semirimorchi
Più che Bisonti della strada, li definirei Serpenti della strada!
Autotreni nel vero senso della parola.
Mack V8 E9-525 Super Liner Take Off in MINI ME - HHA's Big Day Cab Power House
Here is a clip of a move I did a while ago back from Adelaide to Brisbane -
Pulling a Drake 8 line platform with a 300 tonne mobile crane aboard - we
had to use the day cab Super Liner to get our length down to avoid using
police escorts in South Aust... It was a long trip but the big girl puts
out well!! This truck is running about 700-750hp easy.... I still enjoy
driving the 12 speed box - Copy Haul Ass....

Transfer-Dump Race: The Complete Run
Mark Tarascou and his Pete 359 is seen participating in a transfer-dump
competiton at the 2011 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Although there were a
few glitches, it was still a good show.
For those not familiar with dump trucks like these, they are set up with a
system that allows the driver to back the truck up while they are standing
behind it to make attaching the towbar easier. The driver puts the truck
in reverse gear and shuts the engine off. At the rear is a switch or a
button that is used to engage the starter motor on the engine without
starting the truck. Since the transmission is in reverse, as the starter
motor turns the engine it also turns the driveline and backs the truck up.
I'm not a trucker so I don't know what this system or technique is called,
but that is how it works. Thanks for watching. Please rate and share this
video with your friends. Shot on 9-25-11.
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.
