Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Theatrical and exhibition transport specialists Stardes of Sheffield has spent over £1m on six Daf Super Space Cab 95-500 tractors; two Leyland Daf 65-210 and four 45-150 sleeper-cabbed rigids.

The order also includes 12 Fruehauf vans and openingroof curtain-sided step-Frame semi-trailers, all with 100m3 load capacity. Hatcher Components supplied the trailer side skirts.

The left-hand-drive 95500s replace 10-year-old 3300s. They are powered by 507hp (378kW) Cummins N500E Euro-2 diesels with ZF 165221 16-speed synchro-boxes. Cummins Cbrakes and fuel flow meters are fitted as standard.

With their Jost mediumheight fifth wheels and 17.5in trailer wheels, the outfits couple at 46in (1.16m) to run at the continental 4.0m height limits. Stardes is also using the Iwo 95-500s to compare Bridgestone tyre life with Michelins. The Leyland Daf 212hp (158kW) 65-210 is Stardes' second. It has a 600-litre fuel tank in place of the standard 200-litre tank and a Hatcher Sky Cab extension is fitted to the sleeper cab. Hatcher now offers Sky Cabs for day-cabbed 65, 75 and 85-Series cabs.

All the new vehicles are fitted with Eberspacher cab heaters, microwave ovens, Laserline alarms, and Varta heavy-duty replacement batteries which are claimed to last 30% longer and have a three-year warranty.
