Here is the way we
you to investigate
You cannot afford to handicap your transporta
tion department with trucks not adaptable to its
needs. Neither can you afford to purchase trucks
that are backed up by doubtful manufacturing fa
cilities or of unknown reputation. Your transporta
tion problems cannot be solved by trucks that have
not demonstrated their mechanical superiority, as
that would invite uncertain deliveries or delayed
First of all, look to the ability of the truck to
adequately meet your requirements. Truck owners
who are not behind on deliveries who do not risk
delayed shipments or failure to meet freight and
express schedules, apply the same rigid tests in pur
chasing their transportation equipment that they ap
ply to their production equipment.
"Experience has proven that a truck, in order
to be operated economically, must fit the purpose
for which it is to be used. Any truck will carry
goods. The truck that will carry them most ef
ficiently and economically is the one which best fits
the purchaser's requirements.
"Is the truck of the right size to accommodate
the style of body you need? Is it built heavy and
- strong enough to stand up under your loads? Will
it prove adaptable to the emergencies that occasion
ally pop up, such as slight overloads, without getting
top-heavy? Will it be easy to load and unload?
"These and other points, you should make
doubly sure of before going any further, because a
misfit truck means not only high upkeep, but repre
sents an investment that will prove a liability in
stead of an asset.
"Once you are satisfied that you have found the
? right size and style of truck, investigate the reputa-
tion of the makers.
"Is it- a manufactured or an assembled truck?
WVho arft the manufacturers ? What is their record ?
Are ihey financially strong and sound? How long
have" they been going? What is their reputation as
engineers and designers?
A "Dependability is the big basic factor to be
.iakeii into account in the purchase of a truck and
:-the"product selected must be backed by manufactur
!2dferience; integrity and facilities. : c
. f -The purchase of a truck is but the beginning of
? tne transaction, ior tne inmg pi permanent ana para
mount moment is to keep that truck running without
i- interruption. That is why the manufacturers should
vhave unlimited manufacturing facilities. Their repu
station and prestige must be second to none. They
TtlT'should know conditions under which trucks are
1 J -" " nsfd and build accordinclv.
l- 'i s
"Then again, the prompt supply of duplicate,,
parts in case of need, through factory responsibility,
and the ability and disposition to co-operate, are
insured only where the maker is thoroughly respon
sible ana permanent. ' ?
"The primary object, if investing in trucks, be
ing to serve more customers or deliver and haul
more goods in a shorter space of time, investigate
the course of power.
"Is the power plant equal to the power demands
you will make on it? This would mean that the
motor would have to be built for use on trucks, and "
one that has proven in years of service by companies
hauling goods of approximately the same weight
and description as yours. .
"Make sure of its flexibility in making the short
stops and starts of traffic zones, as well as giving
a steady, uninterrupted flow of power on the long 1
stretches in suburbs and country. Test it on stiff
grades and different types of roads. Talk with
other owners and get their experience. As the mo- .
tor is the heart of the truck, satisfy yourself thor
oughly in every way that the truck will live a long
life and not suffer from chronic 'heart failure.
"Concentrated on the next three truck essentials
axles, brakes and springs. Are the axles of the
proven type as to principle of construction? Are they
made of the highest quality material to stand the
brunt of your loads without giving out? Are they
easy to take apart when in need of overhauling?
"Do the brakes possess super-strength with
which to hold the load on all grades? Are they
quick to act and stay set when in action? Have they
the bridge-builders' factor of safety?
"The springs must be heavy, but flexible, sturdy
and pliant to keep the load away from the frame.
This would mean that the steels and other metal
components' should be selected by skilled metallur
gists. Each grade of metal should have been selected
for the particular requirements for which they are to
be used, chemically analyzed for flaws, heat-treated
to give strength, milled and machined for accuracy.
You know that Chrome Vanadium and Nickel steels
are the most dependable, and if possible should be
liberally used in all vital parts.
"Investigate the width and thickness of the
frame to see whether it is of liberal dimensions and
constructed to withstand the severe stress and strain
of continuous 'loads. This is the foundation of the
truck and the real support of the load.
"Then look for the other mechanical details that
insure constant service. Are the oiling devices and
transmission easily accessible, so that your driver
will take pleasure and pride in keeping it in the best
"By conducting such an investigation before purchasing, you will be taking the chance out of truck buy
ingthe uncertainty out of truck performance the risk out of your truck investment. It will be in reality, a
process of elimination and will insure your getting a truck that will prove an efficient and economic asset ta
your business." '
The wise truck buyer today purchases on business lines he makes his choice only after he has been
''shown." An investigation of Kissel Trucks, in company with our transportation expert, will produce con
clusive' ''proof that Kissel Trucks are the obvious trucks for you to employ.
