Turning the tables

With an overarching view to maximising safety for its drivers, clients and the general public, the Glen Cameron Group has specified SAF-Holland G36 fifth-wheels with RECOSS integrated dashboard display status alert on a batch of new Volvo prime movers. Which brings us to the relationship Camerons has developed with fifth-wheel, axle, and suspension supplier SAF-Holland, and specifically its decision to specify a brace of 28 new Volvo prime movers with RECOSS-equipped G36 fifth-wheels. For us, safety is of utmost importance so for some time now, depending on the application, we have been using fifth-wheels equipped with sensor technology that informs the driver, via an in-cab display, whether or not the jaws have locked correctly, says Greg Morris Cameron Group Fleet Manager.
The G36 looks to have the goods and were very keen to try it out to see how it stacks up against our other units and make some comparisons. The G36 units have a longer release handle so the driver doesnt have to reach under as far and its a simple one-handed operation that requires much less effort. According to SAF-Holland, the G36 cast-iron fifth-wheels have a long service life, are low-maintenance, easy to operate and relatively light. As to the ongoing maintenance of the new G36 fifth-wheels, Greg says he doesnt foresee any changes to the regular servicing regime the company currently uses. As for life expectancy, Greg says he expects the new G36 units to last for the life of the prime movers, in line with the other brand of fifth-wheels the company runs.
