McColl’s adds Tieman 26m PBS-approved tanker to fleet

Victorian bulk liquid carrier, McColl’s Transport, has announced it has taken delivery of a 26 metre Tieman road train for its farm milk division.

The new state of the art tanker, which arrived at McColl’s Tongala depot last week, enhances its current fleet of Performance-Based Standards vehicles.

With steer axles on all three combinations the company anticipates the vehicle will have greater access to local dairy farms.

The new tanker is one of several that is being added to the fleet supporting growth to the business.

In an online statement McColl’s said the tanker helps it ensure drivers have access to the best and most efficient equipment available.

The new combination provides 2 x 30,000 Litre barrels making it a perfect fit for large scale dairy farms that produce significant volumes of milk on a daily basis.

“Improvements are continually coming through for both access and mass,” said Roger Robilliard, General Manger, Dairy Division.

“These combinations deliver increased payload and modernises our current fleet,” he said.

The road train safety features include EBS braking for superior stability and braking, auto-greasers for both trailers and the dolley and ease of driver usability via link hose which allows single point unload.

Since it arrived this month the new addition has been servicing new contracts in the northern Victorian region.
