That's the logo I saw on the one in Dongara, very OKAish.

This is what I always wanted until I realised that it couldn't go where an OKA could. Costs a bit more than an OKA too. Quoted me about $140,000, not including the MAN truck

They do a first rate fitout. An Amesz OKA would be interesting. One Powerball.

Cheers, Tony

TH,
don't underestimate the capabilities of the MAN,the center diff lock in the transfer case makes a huge difference in traction,they are a extremely capable truck,as far as rear fit outs much rather prefer all terrain warriors, width and price are the only drawbacks IMO.

I agree, Joe, the MAN is an awesome truck. It was more the sheer size of them, and wheelbase, not being compatible with coastal tracks.

Cheers, Tony

I'm surprised to hear that. Always thought they had reasonable suspension.

Still haven't got the auto fixed yet, should be done next week or so, needed a full rebuild, clutches burnt, pump drive shattered and damage to the converter, so I'm going to put a low k used one in instead otherwise it would be a 6k rebuild!

anyway,
Here are links to 4 compilation videos from the Cape Trip.
I haven’t put part 4 up as it is all waterfall video around Elliot Falls.

The quality isn’t as good as recorded but it would take a ridiculous amount of time to upload them in full definition so they have been downgraded to enable uploading within an hour for each video.

I still haven’t got any of the Go-Pro video from the others on the trip yet, looking forward to that.

Part 1


Part 2


Part 3
