HTN 65 - Sandstone Estates' T900 Kenworth

Sandstone Estates' T900 Kenworth was purchased new in Melbourne Australia in early 1992. It was used as a demonstration vehicle by Paccar (Pacific Car and Railroad) the manufacturer of Kenworth vehicles in Australia. It is rated at 91 tonnes and is in fact a road train tractor which would typically be operating in the outback of Australia pulling three tri-axle trailers.

It was chosen for the application because of its ruggedness, its good looks and its off-road capability. It has a 3506E Caterpillar engine rated at 550 h.p. The driver is Wilfred Mole.
