Feature The BIG KAHUNA

Kenworth T900 Legend  


900 Legend

The classic lines of the Kenworth T900 have been brought back with the limited 900 Legend. We were fortunate to photograph Graham Redington's Legend recently, thanks to Northchill Ltd employee Shayne Downey who took us out to Pukekohe Park. The rig features customizing by the well-known Klos brothers and scrolling and air brushing by Cliff Mannington.




Kenworth K100E

XT is always on the hunt for trucks in NZ that push the boundaries, whether it’s a unique look or a truck that’s loaded with extras. SD Performance's Kenworth K100E fits that criteria. Big sleeper cabovers are a rare find and this Kenworth has that old school look and features some cool extras.

Feature - Peterbilt 362E


S.D Haulage

Peterbilt 362E

It’s been a while since XT featured a truck and that’s not because there was a shortage of trucks being put on the road with the X factor. One truck that we recently spied was that of Stephen Day’s Peterbilt which has been given an extreme makeover.



'the Silent Assassin'

Jarden West is the owner of this staunch looking Western Star. Featuring some cool extras we were fortunate to catch up with Jarden on his day off.



ALMC Limited

Kenworth K200

Take a Kenworth K200 big cab tractor unit and couple it to Roadmaster manufactured trailers and you get an impressive unit. Capable of carrying a 20’ and 40’ container in one go, Shaun McKnight has made a big investment in the best money can buy. We caught up with Shaun and his driver 'Spider' in Hamilton.

May Feature


Bell Transport

Sinister Wolf 

Scanias are a popular choice for NZ truckers, so Hayden Bell wanted his new R620 to look a "little" different.

With some cool extras and impressive light setup this V8 Scania looks the part and then some.



Wayne Croft Transport

Mack Trident

With the ever changing design and look of heavy trucks it can be a challenge for owner/operators to customize their rigs. And while recent NZ regulations of heavy trucks have resulted in some ‘unusual’ configurations, its refreshing to see there are some, like Wayne Croft Transport, who operate rigs that not only earn their keep, but look good doing it.

Lakeland Haulage 9800i Eagle


Lakeland Haulage

9800i Eagle

XT has been trying to catch up with this Lakeland Haulage 9800i Eagle for a while now. We were fortunate to catch up with Hayden Lilley and shoot the unit after the Rotorua Truck show where it took out best tipper.
