Nice to see some 30l crd models doing some hard work
Easily cruised past 110km/h and still accelerating on flats, but we kept on the safe side around the 100km/h in 4th gear. Long very steep uphills down to 80km/h in third. Never needed 2nd. Through Gauteng we did N12, Western Bypass N1. I was apprehensive about hauling that through JHB traffic but it was a breeze, no issue with handling and braking.We could in fact keep up with the general flow of the traffic easily

Is that thing on the trailer a toy or a tool? IE is it going to be your hobby lathe or is it going into a factory?

If a hobby lathe, I would love to know what you use it for!

How was the fuel consumption?
OK feedback - towing 3.5T from Kimberley to Ellisras with the 3.0CRD = 6.7km/l
