NEW ALBION DIESEL TRUCKS
FROM OUR MOTORING CORRESPONDENT
Albion Motors of Glasgow have introduced a new range of seven-ton payload diesel trucks for home and export, the Chieftain Super Six series.
There are three haulage models, three tippers and a tractor for fifth wheel coupling, all powered by a 106 b.h.p. Leyland diesel engine. They have air- operated hydraulic brakes and recirculatory ball type steering. On test a Chieftain Super Six has returned more than 17 m.p.g., averaging 30 m.p.h. over an undulating 20-mile route. On braking tests it has stopped from 30 m.p.h. in 53ft. and from 20 m.p.h. in 27ft.
