General info on Road Tankers

Posted By:Rojo
A friend of mine is in the tanker manufacturing business and has informed me that in the NT & WA at least, road tankers, usually up to 4 trailers long has been increased to 6 trailers. Apparently the mining industry has pushed for this to reduce their freight costs to get fuel.The prime movers to haul this load have gone from the usual dual axle drive to tri axle. The units take forever to get moving. I imagine would be a nightmare to encounter one head on or trying to overtake.
