Idling myths, and a new heart for your truck

Here’s a cautionary tale about idling. Granddad said idle hands were the devil’s workshop, but it doesn’t help trucks either. A few myths have been disapproved about restarting the engine. In reality, an engine restart only uses fuel approximately equal to 10 seconds of idling, and restarting the engine causes less engine wear.

In the US for example, 3.8 billion litres of fuel are consumed annually by idling heavy-duty truck and locomotive engines. But when you’re powering a concrete agitator, you have little choice. You idle at the concrete plant, and then you idle at the job-site keeping the concrete from going off.

Today in the workshop at Torquepower, we are simultaneously replacing two Cummins ISC Common-rail engines. An Acco that’s done a lot of kilometres and the other, a Mack, that powers a concrete agitator, that has done few kilometres, but a huge number of engine hours. When it comes time; through high hours or kilometres; talk to us about a new heart for your truck.  Even if you have the older ADR80/00 C.A.P.S Fuel System ISC Engine; at Torquepower, we can supply and fit the newer ADR80/02 Cummins ISC Common-Rail in its place. If you need a new engine call our Sales Manager Paul Duce now on 0404 098 870 for all available options and pricing.

HAPPY 39th BIRTHDAY Torquepower

Seems when you start a business because of your passion to look after other small to medium business operators (and then work hard and sleep little) everyone wins. On August 9th 1978, Ken and Jude Roberts founded Torquepower with an intention to better support heavy transport operators.

Today, Torquepower holds the largest inventory of Genuine Cummins parts outside of the manufacturer’s own stocks. As a single location, its Cummins parts coverage is one of the largest in the country even when including manufacturer branches.
Torquepower’s strong history, staff expertise and high immediate pick-rate for Cummins parts means that it attracts interest from right across Australia, out into the Pacific Rim and beyond. It is a clear testament to a great team, great product passion and a vast highly valued customer base as we share our vision and continue to grow the business into our 40th business year.

Fishing Champ’s Blackwatch gets a new Long Block

Stan Aspland is a happy-go-lucky concreter and skipper from Bribie Island with two slightly built daughters, Chantelle and Jacqueline, who are keen fishing champs. They are both award-winning Black and Blue Marlin Game Fisherwomen.

“Jacq’s Back” is a beautiful 34 foot BlackWatch sports fishing cruiser with teak decks, and now powered with a new long block built by Torquepower technicians. “ Mick at Torquepower did everything well. Justin in the Service Department looks after me like a brother; what a great crew you have, “ said Stan. “I’m as surprised as everyone else about how my girls have taken to big game fishing, as a kid, Jacqueline used to get seasick in the bathtub! “https://www.torquepower.com.au/recon/

Trinity College Team mirrors our community values

Torquepower’s values are all about Respect for our customers, staff and suppliers; Quality in all that we do; Capability, Professionalism, and Enthusiasm, where every community member contributes and has a personal commitment to our success.

We are proud to sponsor this squad of fine young men from Trinity College Rugby, Beenleigh –  who week on week demonstrate these same values. Pictured here at Sunnybank Rugby Union grounds with Torquepower General Manager Andrew Lawrence.

Torquepower has been part of the local community since 1978, and values great young people. 

Update : TRINITY COLLEGE, our young footy stars, have been battling 20 top teams in the Confraternity Cup at Padua College, and made their way into the quarter finals yesterday with a gritty 12-6 win against a Townsville team. They’ve been playing some pretty tough games but haven’t allowed themselves to be blown off the field. Some teams have had massive losses but Trinity College have represented themselves well, their best performance ironically, a 6/4 loss. Their coach Steve Czapracki said “ If the boys turn up with the same level of intensity tomorrow, they will go extremely well. “ WE LOVE THEIR ENERGY ! TORQUEPOWER for Cummins – Working hard for you – the better we buy, the less you pay !
