The Rebirth of the Diamond Reo Giant at Megatrans 2018
Daysworth International, the market leader in Terminal Tractors over the last 40 years is reigniting the Diamond Reo Road truck brand. Diamond Reo was the iconic reliable heavy duty road truck that graced our highways in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s. Diamond Reo was renowned as “The world’s toughest truck”. Vodanovich Brothers trading as the Australian Diamond Reo assembled and sold the Diamond Reo Giant in the 1980s.
At Megatrans Expo 2018, Daysworth International reveal firstly the Diamond Reo Giant, a 540 HP 6×4 prime mover with perfect specifications for inner city haulage. Secondly, the Diamond Reo Construction Range is represented by the 8×4 Tilt Tray. The 8×4 is also available as a tipper, water tanker, hook lift and crane truck. The Diamond Reo trucks are available today, turn-key for delivery.
The re-introduction of Diamond Reo road truck has been a 9 year project for Daysworth International. The new generation of the Diamond Reo Giant has been extensively tested off shore and in Australia since 2015. The new generation of the Diamond Reo road truck has proven itself with over 1 million kilometres of testing in the harshest Australian road conditions.
