After planning for 5 years to buy a business vehicle that will do everything I wanted I selected an Earthcruiser Iveco model, at Helensburgh, NSW Australia “THE BEAST ” First drive to home base in Western Australia, over the Snowy Mountains, to South Australia across the Nullabor Plains then outback roads to the west coast The vehicle surpassed all the great expectations I had, and lucky for me an Iveco model was on the market, a second hand, still under warranty, in new condition Huge Steel Belted TOYO MT’s Open Country tyres, go anywhere plus the German ISRI leather seats give superb ride for negotiating any of type track conditions Gear and diff selections allow for any situation, with these superb tyres 4WD was used much less than I would have thought and you have so much clear vision from the cab than any other vehicle I have been in No need to stow any petrol or gas, much safer, the diesel HWS system and stove never let us down, outdoor barbecue and shower used almost all trips The inside and outside has easy access storage, plenty of space, all is secured like an ocean going yacht, nothing moves when all locked down Travelling in Western Australia past 12 months the interest by other remote country travellers was amazing, they could not believe you could have so much luxury & comfort with inaccessible out of the way areas The 4 tonne total load does make you a very careful and safe driver, you can still be gung ho, if you choose, as the vehicle would cope with any style of driver An unbelievable experience unequalled for me after 40 years of 4 wheel driving in all manner of bone jarring older and even new regular 4WD vehicles I can recommend to anyone who wants to have a real life outback, go anywhere experience to look at the Earthcruiser models first, owning one of these beasts is worth it, for me it is the ultimate outback work vehicle All my other four, much smaller work vehicles will now be sold
We are on our way back home from Katherine. Hope you all made it back safely, and hope it was worth your massive effort for you and your family to bring your vehicles up here to visit the Northern Bureau. It’s good to have support from HQ. With regard to Earthcruiser we are also over the moon with its performance. It’s amazing how many developments have come since our last one. PS. Rear air con works great on these hot tropical nights PPS. Thanks for talking me into putting BBQ in locker.
Many thanks to you both, Ben, Scott and all the team who turned EXP57 around in such an amazingly short time and at such short notice. You deserve an award! After our lead crystal batteries had failed with just 2 days’ notice you all managed to convert EXP57 to lithium and upgrade the inverter in just two days. It was amazing. You always provide service beyond the call, but this time you really excelled. It's great that everyone has the same ethic too as Ben expressed when he told us he wanted to get us back on the road asap. We are both extremely pleased and happy with the service and would like to say a very big THANK YOU! To everyone.
Really pleased with the new solar panels. They are just fantastic combined with the new regulators we get charging even on cloudy days now and with the lithium batteries makes the perfect combination. All the others said we had to change. They were right. Thank you!
The parcel arrived in Athens on time however there was a big holdup in customs - so we went to Crete for four days whilst they sorted it out! We're pleased to say it was so well packed and it arrived intact. Rob had it fitted inside in 10 minutes. In this heat we are so pleased to have the cross ventilation and views back!! Thank you for all your efforts. We are so grateful for your quick and efficient response.
When away on expedition, they are like having a fully equipped support crew on standby 24hrs a day
