McNamara Logistic’s 8, 2021 Scania New Gen’s!!

McNamara Logistics has taken delivery of  8 Scania 650 S cabs in 2021. These 8 Scania’s come in a variety of configurations. There is a mix of 4×2, 6×2 midlifts, and 6×2 twinsteers. Seven of the 8 trucks have CS20H cabs while one is an S Normal height cab. One thing is common, these are top spec Trucks and are powered by Scania legendary 16 litre V8, a true Drivers dream

One of a Kind:
In January Joe took out 4 650’s together. This included one special Scania that went to Joe’s son Liam. This truck truly is one of a kind and is a great addition to the highly impressive all Scania, McNamara fleet.

Joe took out the remaining 4 later in the year. Two in February and the remaining two in early May, which updated his fleet just in time for the rapid business expansion seen since Covid restrictions have lifted.

Thanks to Joe for his continued business and support, and all of Westwards 52 employees wish everyone at McNamara Logistics’ all the best with their 8 new 650’s.

Nicholas O Brien’s 650S 8X4*4

Nicholas Westward

It was a happy day for Nicholas O Brien as he took delivery of one of the most unique 8 X 4’s in the country. As you can see from our numerous Social media posts over the past few months we were quite excited about this truck. Not many trucks warrant a post when they are at an “Incomplete” Stage. The post of the unfinished truck reached almost 1 million views!

The truck itself is a Scania 650S 8X4*4, which means the first and last axle steer, while the third and fourth axle are driven. The body system on the truck has the ability to change from a tipper to a flatbed body which Nicholas uses the majority of the time for transporting concrete blocks from his base in Roadstone County Galway. The truck has this swap functionality due to the quality work carried out by Thomas Small and Sons bodybuilders in Claregalway, County Galway. Nicholas explained to us how easy it is to perform a change of truck bodies and that he can complete the whole task in under eight minutes.

Same but Different:

Nicholas explained to us about his business and operation and where the love for Scania began.

I started off driving for my father over 20 years ago, driving Hino’s and after a few years of that, I branched off and went out working for myself. I’m with Roadstone now over 22 years. I got the first Scania in 2000 and haven’t looked back since

Nicholas explained to me the differences between his older model 580 and his new 650.

A lad I know who had an R series tractor unit and he changed it for a NTG S cab, said there was no comparison between the old PGR model and current NTG. I didn’t believe there could be such a difference. But the way the new model truck handles the road, the quietness when you’re inside the cab and every other little detail is what really sets the newer model apart

When asked what was his favourite aspect of the NTG compared to the PGR series, Nicolas said:

“If I had to pick one difference I like the most it would have to be the improved steering lock. The lock on the 580 was great, I couldn’t fault it. But the lock on this truck is even better and I didn’t think that was possible. But all in all it’s a combination of every little detail, the truck is the same in terms of wheelbases and configuration but there is no comparison between the two trucks”

The new truck is certainly an eye-catcher

Nicholas explained to me how he is blown away by the reaction he has received on his new 650S.

My previous truck was a 580 hp Scania of the same 8 x 4 configuration, and I didn’t feel it got the attention it deserved but this new 650 I have now has blown me away with the amount of attention it has received. Between all the text messages, WhatsApp, and Facebook messages I am genuinely delighted.

Scania check, complete:

Before any truck leaves our premises, our vastly experienced workshop technicians go through every detail of the truck and make sure every component on the truck is functioning correctly. Whether its tractor units or a rigid truck with a body, every part of the truck must be checked thoroughly. As we are the last point before the vehicles goes out on the road, the body of the truck must also get a thorough check to ensure that all interfaces with the chassis are up to our quality standard.

This truck is going to turn heads and catch plenty of attention out on the roads! The truck is finished to a very high standard with all the driver comforts that any driver would require. At a glance, you notice the maritime blue as distinct to the standard white, but on closer reflection, you see the level of detail and work that has gone into this truck. The colour coded sun visor, the black glass panel behind the driver’s door with chrome strips to the roof light surrounds. Joe’s finishing touches are evident with his choice of Kelsa lobar and roof bar. If you look really closely, you will see that Joe has the amber marker lamps in the visor to match the lights in the Kelsa bars.

 

 

This truck was sold by Eric Treacy, Sales Executive, Westward Scania. Eric and all the team here at Westward Scania wish Joe many happy and safe miles in his New Scania Truck.
