“A truck that pays for itself”
When you’re running Brisbane-Darwin on a regular basis, every drop of fuel your Super-Liner saves goes straight to your bottom line.
Blinco Transport run general freight and triple road trains from Brisbane to Darwin & Kununurra and everywhere in between. In late 2013, the Blinco team took delivery of three new MP10 Super-Liners, with three more on order, and the Super-Liners quickly proved themselves as winners in fuel economy.
That’s what I call economy
"It’s pretty simple really, says Ricky Blinco, “the savings I make in burning less fuel using a Super-Liner cover all my truck payments over a 12-month period. A truck that pays for itself? That’s what I call economy."
After a test drive coordinated by Brian Bennetts, Ricky couldn't fault the drive and performance of the Super-Liner.
Apart from the increased torque and better fuel efficiency, other aspects of the Super-Liner that Ricky’s drivers enjoy are the cooler running temperatures, the ease of driving with the mDRIVE automated manual transmission and the super-quiet cab.
“Driver fatigue is an issue for everyone, especially on the routes we’re running” says Ricky, “and the combination of the mDRIVE, lower cab temperatures and the overall sense of quiet in the cab makes a big difference to our drivers.”
The Gold Bulldog strikes again
Alistair Roberts, Regional Sales Manager - Mack Trucks Australia, said "Blinco Transport are reaping the rewards of the all-Mack driveline. Fuel economy certainly has proved a winner for their team, and driver comfort ensures their drivers are happy to talk about their drive.
“Only an Elite Gold Bulldog Mack with an all-Mack drivetrain can deliver these sort of results. It’s always worth considering the long-term savings that this upfront investment in your Mack can provide, it certainly pays for itself, and with these Super-Liners Blinco Transport have proven that, and what’s more, proven it over one of the most demanding long-haul routes on the planet.”
