Family business D&J Sibbald is celebrating its 85th anniversary
with the purchase of a Scania S 650 Highline V8 tractor unit
from Scania Scotland. The vehicle has been named ‘Hardhill
Caracara’, after a bird of preywith black feathers and a red beak
which is reminiscent of the black leather trim and red stitching
in the 16-litre V8 vehicle. While it features the same livery as
the remainder of the fleet, which is all Scania R-series, it has
also been fitted with alloy wheels.
The truck will be used for general haulage business throughout
the United Kingdom transporting a variety of goods including
construction materials, industrial components and fast moving
The business has a strong history with
Scania as the first Scania vehicle purchased
by the founders David and John Sibbald
was a Scania 111 4x2 in 1975.
Partner of D&J Sibbald, Russell Sibbald,
says: “We are extremely proud of our
new Scania and knew that it would be
the perfect purchase to mark our 85th
anniversary – it is our first V8. We had
heard extremely positive feedback about
the newengine in the S 650 andwe haven’t
been disappointed. We’ve given the truck
fleet number 85 as a nod to our anniversary
It is estimated the truck will clock up
around 160,000km a year and will be
driven by WilliamMcCracken, a driver who
has been with D&J Sibbald for over 30 years.
William said: “I’m very happy to be driving this vehicle for the
company – it’s an honour for me. I’ve been really impressedwith the
S 650 – the new heating system is excellent and keeps a consistent
temperature, the manoeuvrability of the passenger seat is great
in the evenings when you’re relaxing after a hard day behind the
wheel and the amount of storage is unbelievable. I’ve also been
really surprised at the fuel efficiency. Even when driving with a full
load, the mpg is seriously impressive.”
The company is workingwith Search Impex who has commissioned
a WSI model of this specific truck too.
