KS Easter has celebrated its 200th truck milestone with a customised Western Star 4800FXB powered by a Detroit DD15 engine.
Complete with custom grilles, steps, exhausts and LED lighting, the accessorised truck also carries ‘200th’ decals.
A long-standing customer of Penske Commercial Vehicles and the Brisbane Truck Centre, KS Easter has purchased 41 Western Star trucks over the last five years with more in the pipeline.
“We have had a long relationship with Penske, the Brisbane Truck Centre and Western Star, and the 4800 and 5800 trucks have long been a winner for us,” said Ken Easter Jr, owner of KS Easter.
“We have many Detroit-powered Western Star trucks in our fleet which have covered millions of kilometres and we’ve always found them to be very reliable and fuel efficient, and have great driveability.
“Penske delivers us the whole package from sales and finance to service and aftersales which streamlines the process for us.
“I have always had a soft spot for American equipment and have a real affinity for the brand so we are definitely looking to continue buying Western Star 4800 and 5800s.”
Penske Commercial Vehicles Managing Director, Kevin Dennis, said the long relationship with KS Easter was based on understanding the customer’s business.
“We have worked with Ken and his family for a long period and have taken the time to understand his requirements,” said Mr Dennis.
“As KS Easter celebrates their 40th year in the transport industry this year, we look forward to continuing to provide the trucks that keeps the business moving.”
