CC Global: 2022 Truck Show Milheeze – Part Two

Freightliner - Mack - Peterbilt - Peterbilt

About 20 years ago, I found myself at the Iowa 80 Truckstop for my very first photoreport. No, not really. I caught these classic US long noses after a 50 minutes drive from my place, just two months ago.

1988 Freightliner FLD120

Starting with this 1988 Freightliner FLD 120 (Caterpillar, 425 hp).

Mack RW 613 - 1

Mack RW 613 - 2

That about wraps it up for this Super-Liner II.

2000 Peterbilt 379

2000 Peterbilt 379 (Caterpillar, 475 hp).

Peterbilt 379 and Berdex livestock semi-trailer

2020 Berdex semi-trailer - Canada

And what a great idea it was to combine these two for a photoshoot! Shortly after the pictures were taken, the 2020 Berdex livestock semi-trailer was shipped to Canada. It was the sixth new Berdex for Conestoga Meats from Breslau, Ontario. The Canadians opted for the brand for efficiency and animal welfare reasons.

After the separation, Pete stayed in the Netherlands. Mainly to visit truck shows and to participate in other let-the-good-times-roll events.

2001 Peterbilt 379

1998 Peterbilt 379 (Cummins, 525 hp), the last in the line-up of these conventional 6×4 tractors.

2022 Volvo FMX 8x4 tridem

2022 Volvo FMX 8×4 tridem with a crane behind the cab and a roll-off system behind the crane. Better not underestimate this cheerful looking truck, as it’s rated at a GVW of 37 metric tons (81,571 lbs), while being only 9.25 m (30’4”) long.

2018 Volvo FM and 2017 Volvo FM

On the left a 2018 Volvo FM 4×2 tractor, on the right a 2017 ditto (yet with 12.8 liter displacement instead of 10.8 liter).

2021 Mercedes-Benz Actros F 1940

2016 Kempf end dump trailer

A 2021 Mercedes-Benz Actros F 1940 tractor with a 2016 Kempf end dump semi-trailer for transporting sand and other types of soil.

The rig’s payload capacity ranges from 27,600 kg (60,850 lbs) to 33,600 kg (74,000 lbs), all depending on the gross weight limit in the owner’s homeland. A combination like this can be found all over the continent.

1971 Scania L50 flatbed truck

1971 Scania L 50 flatbed truck. Four-cylinder engine, thus short nose. The longest nose was for the contemporary L 110 with its 11 liter inline-six. The 0-series started in 1969, when Scania-Vabis became Scania.

1970 Opel Blitz and 1971 Opel Kadett B Caravan - 1

1970 Opel Blitz and 1971 Opel Kadett B Caravan - 2

An elderly Opel couple. The 1970 Blitz truck is carrying a 1971 Kadett B Caravan. The sign on the right says Joke. That’s not a joke but a female first name. Although it might just as well be a joke, if it’s a nickname for the Blitz.

Camps - 2018 Scania R500 6x2

2018 Scania R500 6×2 pig hauler with a Berdex body, towing a 2018 Berdex full trailer.

Camps - 2018 Berdex livestock trailer - 1

Camps - 2018 Berdex livestock trailer - 2

The trailer comes with independent wheel suspension on the tandem.

Camps - 2020 Finkl livestock semi-trailer

Same owner, same job. A 2020 Finkl semi-trailer, towed by a 2020 Volvo FH 4×2 tractor.

Volvo FH Globetrotter with slogan

Just a tidbit in between. If you prefer (or demand) vegetarian or vegan haute cuisine, the southeast of my country -where the show was held- is definitely not the place to be.

1954 Scania-Vabis LA352B tractor

1954 Scania-Vabis LA 352 B tractor.

1987 Scania 142H 6x2 tractor

1987 Scania 142H V8 6×2 tractor.

Manders - MAN TGX 4x2 tractor

Manders - 2007 Schmitz semi-trailer - 1

Manders - 2007 Schmitz semi-trailer - 2

Manders - 2007 Schmitz semi-trailer - 3

2017 MAN TGX tractor and 2007 Schmitz refrigerated semi-trailer. Noteworthy: the MAN is powered by the truck maker’s biggest engine, the 15.2 liter, D3876 inline-six.

2013 Peugeot Expert 2.0 HDi

1997 Hapert tandem axle trailer

2013 Peugeot Expert 2.0 HDi and 1997 Hapert tandem axle trailer. The same FWD van was also offered by Citroën (which speaks for itself), Fiat and later on also by Toyota.

As an aside, Stellantis and Toyota are working on an all-new generation of full-size vans, to be introduced in 2024. The next gen Fiat Ducato and many others, that is.

2013 DAF XF and 1979 Mack F786T

Ending the tour with a 1979 Mack F786T next to a 2013 DAF XF 460 FT Super Space Cab. Different times, different continents. All brought together on a sunny Sunday afternoon in April 2022.
