Last weekend I went to the Wolkberg Wilderness area between Polokwane and Tzaneen with ORRU for training with other agencies such as Mountain Search and Rescue, Ground Search and Rescue (K9's), SAPS Search and Rescue and Limpopo EMS. I towed the ORRU Mobile Command Post (MCP) there and back. MCP's GVM with water and equipment is a bit less than 2t.

Diesel consumption according to GPS mileage there and back was as follows:
  • Centurion to The Ranch stop - 5,9km/lt or 16,85lt/100kms
  • The Ranch stop to Wolkberg campsite, driving around at Wolkberg and tow back to The Ranch stop - 4,5kml/lt or 22lt/100kms
  • The Ranch stop back to Centurion - 5,7km/lt or 17,52lt/100kms
Back to my previous post about the Madman and "om te weet is om te meet". Just before The Ranch stop there is one hell of a steep climb that made me work hard... During this climb I have seen EGT temp of 670, engine oil temp of 103 and coolant temp of 105 with boost of 1bar. I learned quickly that to get the EGT down, gear down but then the engine oil temp and coolant temp rise... To know what was happening under the bonnet and to be able to adjust to the readings gave comfort as the last thing I wanted to do is break my car..

Ek weet nie wat die wa se tarra is nie, maar gelaai is hy net onder 2ton.
Ten spyte van die gewig is dit n droom om te sleep, ongelooflik stabiel agter die Patrol, teer en grondpad. Verlede jaar is die wa op in Mosambiek tydens die vloede en gesleep waar paaie was, terug voer is dat dit in die rowwe terrein net so stabiel was. Ontwerp van die onderstel is werklik goed en sy remstelesel is net so goed, rem homself op n afdraande sonder dat ek ooit gevoel het hy stoot die Patrol.
