The Right Way to Install Your LF14000NN

Since 2019 the Cummins ISX/QSX/X12 & X15 engines have incorporated two variations to the threaded nutplate. The two nutplates variations result in minor differences to the turns required to engage seal to lube head surface prior to the 3/4 turn neccessary after gasket contact to ensure a proper seal to the lube head.

We've been told by Cummins that they are continuning to work on reducing these subtle changes that you could experience when installing your LF14000NN.

For the best installation technique Cummins have recommended following the instructions printed on the side of the filter shell and not rely on torque of feel for installation.

Installation of LF14000NN

To install the filter, regardless of nutplate variation

  1. Lubricate the gasket with clean engine oil prior to installation
  2. Prefill the filter with clean engine oil
  3. Install filter by hand until the gasket makes contact ot the lube head
  4. Tighten the filter an additional 3/4 of a full turn using the printed "A B C D" markings on the filter shell for reference.

NHVR Update Their Chain of Responsibility Tool

The NHVR have reported that they've updated their online safety assessment tool to help heavy vehicle operators and fleets to identify gaps in their safety systems.

Queensland Transport and Main Road Minister Mark Bailey said the NHVR’s Gap Assessment Tool had been simplified and upgraded to assist operators to examine their current systems against known risks and recognised best practice.

This simplification should produce better results for time-poor owner-drivers and small fleets trying to make ends meet, especially during tough times like they are currently. We've previously heard slights against NVHR's tool for being tough to use and understand, especially in the early days.

“Heavy vehicle operators tell us they want a quick and easy tool to assess their business’s safety compliance with their Chain of Responsibility obligations,” Mr Bailey said. “Now more than ever we want the entire supply chain working together to assist drivers to operate safely and efficiently."

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said the re-launched Gap Assessment Tool included a number of new features, including:

  • New bus-specific version to provided targeted guidance for the bus industry
  • Simplified recommendations which link to NVHR resources, website information, and external material such as the Load Restraint Guide and the Master Industry Code of Practice
  • Links to relevant National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme material
  • New easier-to-read format
  • Links to quick briefs and relevant sections of Heavy Vehicle National Law.

“The Tool includes a number of relevant questions which can be completed in less than 15 minutes and has been updated to link to the additional support information such as the NHVR’s Safety Management System material and the Master Industry Code of Practice,” he said.

“The updated tool replaced the original version which was launched in 2017 and used more than 20,000 times to support major changes to Chain of Responsibility laws which were introduced in October 2018.”

If you're about to use NHVR's COR we're interested to hear how you've changed your business practices to meet your new requirements.

The Australian Government has just announced an increase of the Instant Asset Write-Off (IAWO) up to $150,000 (up from $30,000 last week). This means your business* will be able to immediately depreciate the full value of assets up to $150,000. The threshold applies on a per asset basis, so eligible businesses can immediately write-off multiple assets.

If you're looking to upgrade or replace your tools, tool boxes, workshop equipment (compressors, hoists, grease/oil dispensing systems, code readers/truck scan tools) then we've got you covered. We can get the best pricing on Macnaught workshop grease and oil equipment, SP Tools tool kits, tool boxes and compressors, CanDo scan tools and code readers, and Alemlube hoists and other workshop equipment.

If you'd like to start talking about what workshop equipment we can provide to help you make the most of the Instant Asset Write-Off scheme, then please get in touch with your local branch.

If you'd like the full details and to understand if your business is eligble, please visit the Treasury page on the Corona Virus Economic Package - https://treasury.gov.au/coronavirus/businesses

We truly believe that small and medium business are the backbone of our economy and we are committed to doing what we can to help our industry weather this difficult time. Our branches will be open as normal for as long as it is deemed safe for our staff and customers, our employee's safety is always our highest priority. 

We can understand that making any purchasing decisions at this time can be confronting and difficult as none of us know what the future holds. We all have businesses to run however, so to give you confidence in purchasing from us, we will immediately extend our returns policy to 90 days from date of purchase

Effective immediately all customers will have up to 90 days to return any items that they do not require / need. So if you purchase items from us, and things really do go from bad to worse, you will be able to return them to us for a full credit. Our returns policy will otherwise remain in place of course, namely that goods are unused and in the original packaging which is undamaged and unmarked and this will only apply to stocked goods. Special buy-ins are excluded.

As many of you will have heard the Australian government has just announced two policies to help businesses like ours manage this difficult time. Eligible business that employ apprentices or trainees are able to recoup up to $21,000 per eligible apprentice or trainee. That means we can keep more young people employed and learning for our country's future. For immediate cash flow challenges, an eligible business can receive a tax-free payment of up to $25,000, or a minimum of $2,000. For more information on both policies please read this excellent fact sheet which has just been released - Fact Sheet.

We pride ourselves on being the independent parts provider in an increasingly corporate-driven industry, and we endeavour to support local transport, mechanical and manufacturing businesses where we can.

With recent fines handed down for speed limiter tampering, NSW Transport has created a fact sheet for the checks and applications of inspections.

The document begins by clarifying the vehicles with fall under the speed limiting laws. "Under NSW road transport law, the maximum speed limit for a vehicle with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of more than 4.5 tonnes is 100 km/h.

Under Australian Design Rule (ADR) 65, certain larger heavy vehicles are limited to a maximum road speed limit of 100 km/h. This is typically controlled by software installed by engine manufacturers which is designed to limit the vehicle to a maximum speed of 100 km/h. "

The officers that undertake these inspections are specially trained by in a partnership with TAFE NSW, and they utilise OEM software for specified engine types. The inspectors also take into consideration tyre size and gearing when determining the outcome of compliance checks.

"The Speed Management Program, including ECM checks, was introduced following a fatal crash in 2012 on the Hume Highway which uncovered multiple cases of maximum road speed non-compliance." explains the document.

With heavy fines being handed down to make examples of operators flaunting the law, non-compliance will have a major impact on your bottom line.

"Test day for IKC R5 of the club championship yesterday at Willowbank with a solid field of 21 Karts. Took the new Kosmic chassis around the track for its first race & was really happy with how it drove.

Started the day off bitter sweet with a decent win in Heat 1 however I forgot to put the timing transponder on the kart so ended up disqualified for the Heat. Off P17 for heat 2 & came in 3rd, tough drive through the field. Off P14 for the Pre-final & drove through to P6- unfortunately I side swiped team mate #7 Simon Chadwick causing some damage which resulted in a DNF 😫. Off P10 for the final & drove through to 3rd crossing the line behind the leaders who were in an epic battle for 10 laps.

Congrats to IKC & the volunteers for another great event, all the other competitors for a great days racing & to Mitch for taking the W.

Bring on the Qld State Titles in Proserpine next weekend!!"

Air filtration is a simple concept; but in order to get the best performance from your engine, and the most out of your air filter, there are a few other technologies worth being aware of. From precleaners to advanced media innovations, this article will take you through a few of the Fleetguard solutions designed to help lower your total cost of ownership.

The first is Fleetguard Magnum media. Every filter has a given surface area in which to capture and retain contaminants. Fleetguard Magnum filters fit in more media than traditional air filters, providing greater surface area for trapping particles. Greater surface area means greater capacity, which results in longer service intervals and reduces the need for filters to be changed as often. Consequently, Fleetguard Magnum helps to reduce downtime and lower an engine’s total cost of ownership (TCO). Magnum filter upgrades are identified by the “M” suffix on the end of the part number. Many Fleetguard air filters are available with Magnum upgrades.

Graphic 1 Magnum

Next are precleaners. Precleaners are an air filters best friend. They help reduce the contamination load of an air filter by removing particles before they get to the element. Fleetguard Sy-Klone precleaners are an ejective type precleaner, that require zero maintenance. They provide high efficiency removal of larger particulates that would otherwise contribute to more rapid blockage of an air filter element. Precleaners work to extend service intervals, reducing downtime and TCO. 

You can see how they work here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6AxqFVipbA

To find out more about air filtration precleaners visit: https://www.cumminsfiltration.com/south-pacific/air-intake-filter-precleaners

Graphic 2 Safety Filter

The third technology is the humble restriction indicator. Often overlooked, this small but important accessory is very useful in determining when a filter needs changing, allowing you to service only when necessary, and never prematurely. Restriction indicators ensure you get the longest possible life out of your air filters and therefore prevents you from wasting time and money on unnecessary servicing.

Graphic 3 Restriction Gauge

Finally, it is worth noting the important role of the safety element; also referred to as the secondary or inner element. If your air filtration system is fitted with one of these, you only need to change it every third primary filter element change. This is because all of the hard work is done by the primary filter, and typically, the safety element should see very little contamination. Generally, the only contamination that the safety element faces, is what falls off the primary element during a service. By ensuring safety elements are changed on this basis, you save on parts and labour, lowering TCO. 

Graphic 4 Precleaner

We know that every second a truck is off the road, or a machine is out of action, is lost revenue for your business. Whilst the best air filtration is important, it’s never a bad idea to explore the other options available to assist in lowering your total cost of ownership and keeping your engine running as often as possible. A Fleetguard filter is only part of our solution. To find out more contact us on 1300 442 142 or contact us.

Nick Radford was completely surprised when told his 1990 Mack Valueliner had been voted the Owner//Driver Tranzmile Truck of the Year for 2018.


This was the inaugural running of the Tranzmile-sponsored award, and the other 11 contenders of various makes and models were of a much more recent vintage.


However, Nick was even more impressed when he was presented with the shiny and substantial trophy at his Radford Pastoral property at Penola in South Australia a few days later.

Original Equipment Manufacturer’s (OEM) Approvals represent the toughest and hardest level of oil specification available. Not to be confused with “recommendations” or “meets specifications of” often used by many oil brands.

To gain OEM Approval on any oil product, it must pass strict tests and procedures as specified by the OEM. The full process can cost millions of dollars and must be repeated for each lubricant type. Is your fleet’s oil OEM Approved or just “Recommended For”?

Q8 Oils have put the hard yards in, and have hundreds of OEM Approvals on the full range of their oils. So there’s no excuse to put high quality, OEM Approved oils in your fleet.

Introduction to automatic transmission systems

Many drivers prefer a manual transmission system over an automatic transmissions system in their vehicle. And yet an automatic gearbox has a lot of advantages. In this article we list up the different automatic transmission technologies and compare them in terms of fuel efficiency, production cost and driving comfort.

What is an automatic transmission system?

Vehicles need a transmission to transfer the power from the engine to the drive shaft and the differential to let the wheels turn. The transmission varies the torque, the speed and the direction by changing the transmission ratios and enables the car to start with a high torque. An automatic gearbox, or automatic transmission system, is a gearbox which, after switching on the gear, does not require manual switching.

How does an automatic gearbox work?

There are different technologies used for the automation of transmission systems.

Automated Manual Transmission (AMT)

As the name indicates, Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) systems are built based upon manual transmission systems, but the switching and the operating of the clutch is automated. Vehicles with an AMT have no clutch pedal and no real gear lever. Additional actuators are mounted on the gearbox for opening and closing the clutch and switching the synchronization rings. The full process of opening the clutch, switching to a new gear, and closing the clutch is electronically controlled. The driver can choose for an automatic mode or a manual mode. In manual mode the driver can use paddles on the steering wheel or the gear lever to switch gears.

Benefits of AMT:

  • Additional functionalities like hill hold or launch control are possible
  • Low fuel consumption
  • Shorter switching times (compared to manual transmission)
  • Low production cost

AMT examples:

  • Selespeed (Alfa Romeo)
  • SMG (BMW)
  • Sensodrive (Citroën & Peugeot)
  • Allshift (Mitsubishi)
  • Quickshift (Renault)
  • Sequentronic (MB)
  • Easytronic (Opel)
  • MMT (Toyota)
  • Daimatic (Daihatsu)
  • Hondamatic (Honda)
  • NAVi5 (Isuzu)
Automated Manual Transmission (AMT)
Automated Manual Transmission (AMT)

Conventional Automated Transmission (AT)

Due to the controlled oil pressure in a conventional automated gearbox, the gear speed is switched to a higher gear speed. As soon as the car slows down, the gearbox returns to a lower gear and when the car stops, the gearbox automatically switches back to the lowest gear. At standstill, it is necessary to hold the brake, or to switch the car in the ‘N’-position (Neutral).

In modern gearboxes, the transmission module controls the pressure and the switching times based on a number of sensors (of the motor and transmission). As a result, the transmission responds faster and makes the switching more comfortable.

Similar to a manual gearbox, the conventional AT has a number of fixed gears between which can be shifted. An AT shifts by connecting couplings with certain axes on the gear system, the planetary system. Each axis has a different transmission ratio, resulting in different gears.

Shifting is performed automatically by hydraulics technology. A torque convertor transfers the driving power of the gearbox to the cardan shaft.

Benefits of AT:

  • Faster transmission response (compared to AMT)
  • Increased gear switching comfort (compared to AMT)
  • Proven technology
  • Good torque capacity

AT examples:

  • Tiptronic (Audi, Volkswagen, Porsche)
  • Steptronic (BMW)
  • G-Tronic (MB)
  • Q-Tronic (Alfa Romeo)
  • Matic (Nissan)
  • Cruise-O-Matic (Ford)
  • Powertech (Hyundai)
Conventional Automated Transmission (AT)

Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)

The dual clutch transmission is a novelty introduced by Audi in the late nineties under the name of “DSG” (Dual Shift Gearbox). A Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) has two axles on which the gear system is fitted. One axle is used for the even gears, the other axle is used for the odd gears and the reverse gear, each with its own shift mechanism and clutch. The big advantage is that the next gear is always ready. When driving in the first gear, the other axle is inactive but instantly ready for use because it moves together with the active axle. This technology allows superfast gear-switching times.

Benefits of DCT:

  • Superfast, seamless gear switching
  • Increased gear switching comfort
  • Low fuel consumption

DCT examples:

  • DCT (BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Renault)
  • DSG (Audi, Volkswagen)
  • S-Tronic (Audi)
  • PowerShift (Volvo, Ford)
  • PDK (Porsche)
  • SpeedShift (MB)
  • Twinamic (Smart)
  • TCT (Fiat, Chrysler)
  • TC-SST (Mitsubishi)
Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)
Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)

Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)

Unlike manual or conventional automatic transmissions, the Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) does not interrupt the pulling force while switching. Because the CVT does not work with different gears, it accelerates smoothly. The heart of the CVT is the variator that exists of two sets of conic discs over which the belt is running. When the distance between the two disks is changed, the running radius of the belt will be adapted, allowing a seamless variable transmission ratio. A Continuous Variable Transmission is applicable for very high loads up to a torque of approximately 450 Nm.

Benefits of CVT:

  • Very good gear switching comfort
  • Good acceleration
  • Applicable for high loads

CVT examples:

  • Variomatic (DAF)
  • CVT (Chrysler, Jeep, Ford, Mitsubishi, Honda)
  • Multitronic (Audi, Seat)
  • M-CVT (Nissan)
  • SECVT (Suzuki)
  • E-CVT & HSD (Toyota)
  • LHD (Lexus)
  • Lineartronic (Subaru)
  • VTi (GM)
  • Autotronic (MB)

TomTom Telematics scoops Best Telematics System title at BusinessCar Fleet Technology Awards

TomTom Telematics, a leading provider of advanced fleet management solutions, has won the Best Telematics System title in the 2015 UK BusinessCar Fleet Technology Awards – the Techies.

As the only independent awards in fleet dedicated to technological innovation and excellence, the Techies are unique in rewarding those services, companies and products that best serve the business car marketplace.

The accolade, awarded on August 25, recognises the impact of OptiDrive 360, the company's next generation of WEBFLEET fleet management software, which empowers motorists to drive in a greener, safer style.

OptiDrive 360 provides drivers with best practice coaching on how to drive safely and efficiently before, during and after a journey. As well as giving instant feedback on harsh braking, speeding and cornering, it offers predictive driving advice using vehicle and map data to advise business drivers when to take their foot off the accelerator or shift gear, and what their optimum green speed should be.

The technology was developed following years of collaborative research with the EU ecoDriver Project.

“We were first to market with driver terminals which give direct feedback to business drivers and now we’ve raised the bar again with OptiDrive 360,“ said Giles Margerison, Director at TomTom Telematics.

“By scoring drivers on eight performance indicators, fleet managers can build up a highly accurate picture of driver behaviour which can then be used as the basis for performance reviews, training and driver benchmarking.“

BusinessCar Editor Paul Barker added: “This win in the Telematics category of the 2015 BusinessCar Techies illustrates the level of technical development TomTom’s OptiDrive 360 offers the corporate marketplace. The pioneering step of predictive advice for drivers on when to ease off for roundabouts or other hazards is particularly innovative and impressed the Techies judging panel on top of the host of useful and useable information for fleet managers.”

The Techies awards success comes hot on the heels of other recent wins for TomTom Telematics including the Belgium Fleet Innovation Award for OptiDrive 360 in June and Best Commercial Vehicle Systems Integrator at the TU-Automotive Awards in the US.

New Queensland Transport Requirements

A number of our customers have reported that the Department of Transport has been fining road users for the use of umarked Shackles for towing purposes. These shackles are commonly used for towing caravans, boats or trailers for securing safety chains to the towing vehicle.

To view the August 2014 Safe Towing Guide please click here.

Interestingly, the Guide says:

""The Department of Transport and Main Roads recommends that the shackles used should meet Australian Standard AS 2741-2002 “Shackles”, or another equivalent recognised standard, and have a break load limit of the shackle is rated at least 1.5 times greater than the ATM of the trailer."

It goes on to say that you can identify a shackle that meets the AS standard by viewing its marking. It needs to clearly show the manufacturer name, quality grade and load rating.

Even though the guide says that this is "recommended" we have confirmation from a number of customers that they are being booked if the shackles do not have a clear manufacturer name, quality grade stamp, load rating and the AS number displayed.

All Tranzmile outlets, including Kingaroy Machinery Centre and Black Truck Sales outlets now stock a full range of shackles that meet these requirements.

Selecting The Right Grease

The application of grease can be at times very complex, although a little knowledge goes a long way. For example, in construction equipment the environment is harsh with water, dirt, poor seals and heavy loads being common. In this type of situation, you need a grease that is highly water resistant, tenacious, with good rust protection and film strength. Barium greases work well along with the lithium 12‑hydroxy greases (usually with polymers). Some specific formulations using an aluminum-complex thickener also find use here.

Bearings (ball, roller, needle, etc.) normally see much less contamination but experience wide variations in both speed and temperature. Here, you need a grease that has outstanding mechanical stability (very minor softening or hardening), excellent oxidation stability (long life) and performance over a wide temperature range. Where temperatures do not exceed 250 degrees F, the lithium 12‑hydroxy greases find the widest use. When temperatures increase or long life is required, either a lithium-complex or polyurea can be used.

Sliding or rubbing contact such as with automotive ball joints, sleeve bearings, some gears, etc., requires both extreme pressure and anti‑wear qualities along with a tenacious film to prevent squeeze-out, washout or both. In this type of application, the use of solid lubricants to aid in the prevention of wear is common, with molybdenum disulfide being the dominant solid. Here, the lithium 12‑hydroxy, lithium complex, barium and aluminum-complex greases would be good choices.

Improper selection and application of the proper type of grease to perform in the intended application is one of the biggest reasons for failure. Also at the top of the list is grease compatibility or the lack of it. As a general rule, keep similar thickeners in the same application (e.g., lithium with lithium complex). If possible, do not mix greases of different thickener types.

Especially try to avoid situations where aluminum complex, clay or silica-thickened greases may become mixed with other greases. Excessive softening is usually the result. These thickeners, while producing excellent lubricating greases, do not tolerate other greases well.

Failure of almost any grease‑lubricated part generally falls into four categories:

  1. The selection and application of the wrong type of grease

  2. Incompatibility resulting in excessive softening

  3. Contamination resulting in excessive wear

  4. Too much or too little grease applied

Remember, the lack of grease can cause failure, but too much grease is often the primary cause of failure because the excessive lubricant causes high temperatures, which in turn oxidizes the grease.

Tranzmile expands to Kingaroy

Published on: 08.04.2014

Tranzmile is pleased to announce the purchase of Kingaroy Machinery Centre. Kingaroy Machinery Centre has been servicing the South Burnett since 1945 with a proud history of providing a full range of truck, trailer and agricultural parts. With the purchase by Tranzmile, the range of products available through Kingaroy Machinery Centre has already grown, with over $100,000 in additional stock now available in store.

In addition KMC customers will see significantly improved pricing, making KMC more than competitive with suppliers in Toowoomba or Brisbane. If you live or work in the South Burnett, there really is only one destination for all of your truck & trailer parts - Kingaroy Machinery Centre.

From Monday the fourth of November, Kingaroy Machinery Centre will join Tranzmile, the aftermarket truck and trailer parts arm of the Harvey Black family’s Black Truck & Ag company which sells and services Iveco, Western Star, Isuzu and New Holland in Toowoomba, Dalby, Roma, Goondiwindi and Moree.

Managing director of Tranzmile Cameron Black said purchasing Kingaroy Machinery Centre was a logical step in the growth of their business. “We wanted an established business which had its roots in a thriving country town to expand our portfolio,” Mr Black said.
“Kingaroy Machinery Centre is a natural fit with us because it is a strong rural business with a good grounding in aftermarket truck servicing given it is a former International trucks dealer."

“With the buying power of our combined truck and parts businesses, our Kingaroy customers are going to be able to start buying locally with us, but only pay Brisbane and Toowoomba pricing. “

I think this is going to be a huge benefit for everyone doing business in the town. “Customers will pretty much straight away start seeing some very significant savings flowing through to them.” Mr Black said KMC would be expanding the centre’s already big range. “You will be able to access the huge range of products we have in Brisbane and Toowoomba, without having to make the drive to the city,” he said. “As a part of the Harvey Black Group, Neil, Angie and Paul from KMC now join our existing 22 parts interpreters, ensuring that there is very little in the way of truck and trailer parts that we cannot help our customers with. 
“Black Truck Sales runs, of course, Iveco, Western Star and Isuzu truck dealerships so KMC will be particular strong in that area as well.” 
Mr Black said having grown up only an hour away, near Jandowae, he might call Brisbane home now, but he is firmly a country boy. The Gehrkes congratulated Cameron and said they were pleased the business was remaining with another longstanding country family. “We wish him the best for the future,” he said. “We would also like to thank all of our customers for their loyalty they have given to this business over the past five and half years and would especially like to thank (their staff) Neil, Angie and Paul for their support and loyalty each of them have given us. “I am sure you will find the same excellent service will continue.”

Moving the largest load in West Australian mining history

Published on: 18.03.2014

Australian Mining brings you a gallery of the largest machinery move in West Australia's history, as well as video of the operation in action.

Over six days four prime move trucks towed a fully assembled Liebherr 996 excavator weighing more then 675 tonnes.

The machine was from Fortescue's Christmas Creek mine to its Solomon operations.

They travelled at speeds of 4km/hr over gravel, thanks to an additional two trucks pushing the load, and reached speeds of 6km/hr on roads.

Hauling the load the 230km to the mine took them six days, (including time spent being bogged, which was only recitified with the help of four front end loaders) working up to 15 hours per day.

It was moved on 24 twin-axle (384) Goldholfer platforms.
