2017 Technology works with 1990 Volvo at Torquepower

2017 Diesel Teechnogy works with a 1990 VOLVO. “ I came into Torquepower after the replacement engine was fitted because of smoke and a lack of power.  “George” ( Anthony) Kunst is a Gympie born and bred driver of 35 years, that now has 2017 technology on a 1990 truck. “ I’ve never found a gold nugget, so we ‘grow’ rocks and drive trucks. “ He’s part of a family that drives . Wife Melissa is an accomplished excavator operator and driver. George jokes, “It’s very dry outside Gympie, people are waiting for water trucks, so the rocks aren’t growing very quickly.”

Sunshine Basalt are all about home grown rocks. Mum and Dad -in-law and Melissa excavate the rocks and George freights them. “What’s great about our rocks is that they are all-natural bush rocks.” I thought all rocks were natural ? “Not so, some are blown out. These are all natural shapes, complete with aged moss for waterfall and gardens. Basalt is harder than sandstone, and it won’t degrade or crumble like quarry rock, and over time they become darker, and covered with attractive moss and lichens. “

A million dollar weekender at Sunshine Coast has just had 32 truck-loads of Sunshine Basalt delivered for rock walls, and the landscape gardener loves them. A load of rocks to Victoria Point yesterday for stairs was pronounced perfect.

The Sunshine Basalt Volvo is 27 years old, and has just clicked over one million kilometres. The 14 litre NT855 Cummins motor replaced out an old Volvo 16 litre engine . Says George, “ I like Cummins, I’ve grown up with Cummins. I’ve dealt with Torquepower since the early days 35 years ago, buying pumps and injectors for my mechanic in Gympie when I was running a T-line 230. I knew my truck should pull better than that, even with a 22 and a half tonne load of rocks.

“I came into Torquepower after the replacement engine was fitted because of smoke and a lack of power. The truck had an air accelerator now adjusted to cable. Now that the pump is right, everything should be right. Torquepower is brilliant. I like that they look after my budget. I talk to Carl and Justin, we spend a bit, then I go away and test it, so I save as I go. What we did two weeks ago with the pump has totally changed the truck for the better. Today’s visit will be the icing on the cake. I now have 400 HP and automatic engine braking release. That’s 2017 computer technology on a 1990 truck ! When I take the account home to my Missus, and she says. ‘Oh that’s better than I expected”, I know all is well. We would have done this six years ago, had I believed that it would go this well.” 0732778277 170 Beatty Road, TORQUEPOWER QLD https://www.torquepower.com.au/workshop-service/

New Cummins heart for a Port of Brisbane workhorse

Forklifts aren’t a passion purchase like trucks, but they sure make life easier, especially at the Port of Brisbane, one of Australia’s fastest growing container ports & Queensland’s largest general cargo port located at the mouth of the Brisbane River. Advanced Maintenance Management at Gateway Park, had Torquepower rebuild a Cummins QSB5.9C for a Hyster container lift fork truck engine after it was “dusted” (where contamination has circulated through the engine and oil).

Operations Manager Karl said “ I prefer Hysters, they are really tough machines, but when they breathing in dirt they don’t go so well. The machines do work in a tough environment, this site is off-port in Hemmant, so its rough terrain work stacking containers. My maintenance crew service the forklifts; in just one yard there are 7 units, and I manage multiple yards so it’s always busy.”

“Once the Hyster started using oil , I knew all was not well. We took the engine into Torquepower. They rebuilt it, and it was delivered back to me about half an hour ago.The communication process was good and Justin kept in touch. It’s all gone well. Torquepower has been doing my engine work for years. “ https://www.torquepower.com.au/workshop-service/ Cummins specialists.
