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

consumer goods.

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

too.”

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.
