Cat trucks roadshow

Two of the most dynamic new trucks to hit the Australian market in 2014 are the centrepiece of an exciting roadshow touring major Queensland freight routes.

Cat Trucks Queensland dealer Hastings Deering is embarking on an expansive road show to provide truck owners and drivers from south-east Queensland through to Cairns with a first-hand introduction to the new Cat CT630S and CT630SC models coupled to B-double combinations.

Designed and engineered specifically for Australian B-double applications, yet with the inherent attributes to easily cope with a multitude of heavy-duty tasks including B-triple and roadtrain double configurations, the CT630S and CT630SC will be on show at designated truck stops along much of Queensland’s eastern seaboard.

Starting from the Hastings Deering Cat Truck Centre at Richlands in suburban Brisbane, the roadshow will ultimately cover more than 5000km and in its first week-long stage visited major truck centres at Toowoomba, Goondiwindi, Warwick, Aratula, Chinderah and Port of Brisbane.

The second stage started Tuesday and headed from Richlands into far-north Queensland, stopping at Caboolture, Maryborough, Childers, Rockhampton, Emerald, Mackay, Bowen, Townsville and Cairns. The return leg will follow a similar route but include stops at Gin Gin, Apple Tree Creek and Kybong before concluding at Hastings Deering Richlands on Friday, September 19.

“A great deal of thought and planning has gone into this event,” Hastings Cat Trucks roadshow Deering Cat Trucks manager, on-highway trucks, Gary Johnson said. “Taking the trucks on the road highlights our immense confidence in the CT630S and the CT630SC.

“We’re truly looking forward to giving as many people as possible a close, detailed look at each model so they can see for themselves what all the fuss is about.

“There’s a lot to like about these trucks, and if anyone wants to find out more, or exactly when and where they will be in their area, just call us on 1800 228 648.” For more information on the roadshow see www. cattrucks.com.au/ events for when the Cat trucks will be in your region.
