Currently there are a dozen truck manufacturers whose vehicles you will commonly see on British roads. Starting with the 18-tonne class at which an HGV (now LGV) licence becomes necessary, Patrick shows examples from each producer. He goes up to the full 38/44-tonne articulated models. This is a book for novice enthusiasts of all ages in which they will find basic information about the tractor units, the wide variety of truck bodies and the wheel conformations. The liveries of a range of carriers are also shown, though some of the vehicles are demonstrators' models. Cut-away pictures make the engineering of the trucks crystal-clear. Opposite each full-page photograph, Patrick supplies basic information about the power and performance of the vehicles. He also gives details about the companies - their nationalities and group memberships.

About the Author

Patrick Dyer, born in 1968, grew up during one of the most notable and exciting periods of development for heavy trucks and also the last of the real glory days for trucking as an industry. This is reflected in his subject matter. His previous books covered the LB110, 111 and 141 from Scania, the 2800, 3300 and 3600 from DAF, the Ford Transcontinental and the F88 and F89 from Volvo. Although Patrick's day job is in motor sports, he holds a Class One licence and drives whenever the opportunity arises. He is also the proud owner of a 1983 Volvo F12, finished in the livery of Edwin Shirley Trucking, which he restored with the help of long-term friend, Ashley Pearce.
