History of Pacific Trucks

  If I were asked to name the most brutal car, then I would most likely choose this handsome man. A Canadian 1977 Pacific Ultra ballast tractor, the masterpiece and pinnacle of Vancouver-based Pacific, which produced huge "premium" trucks and tractors from 1948 to 1991. We didn't skimp on quality.


A fifty-ton tractor with a Cummins V-12T engine with a volume of 28 liters and a power of 800hp. had a number of design features, the main of which was the traction matching system when working in couplings (I didn’t understand how it worked, but I believe that they tied it through the hydraulics of the automatic transmission). Because even such tank power was often not enough to transport what customers needed. Therefore, tractors worked in couplets of two, three, and even four vehicles.


Of course, such machines are completely piece goods. In total, 23 Pacific Ultra machines were manufactured, and they left, mainly for South Africa, where they successfully dragged large-sized structures weighing hundreds of tons.

Of course, the Ultra version was the top one, much more simpler cars were produced, Pacific with a 500hp engine, which were purchased in large quantities both in Canada and the USA and even in New Zealand, and a series of 17 cars with 615hp engines should be noted separately. s., who worked in a coal mine in Soda Springs, Idaho.


However, the crisis of the early 80s knocked down a successful company. Her magnificent P-510-F trucks (lighter and more massive, which gave the main income) turned out to be too good for this world - due to the fact that they did not save on material, in particular, they weighed three tons more than competitors of equal carrying capacity, which reduced their attractiveness in a world of sharply risen in price of fuel. Yes, and they cost more ... Sales began to decline, the last truck was sold in 1987, the company floundered on spare parts and service for several more years, but in 1991 it finally closed.

However, this is not quite the end of the story. In 2002, Coast Power Train of New Westminster bought everything they could - all the rights, blueprints, and leftover rigging. It turned out that the Pacific giants are so good that they are still working, and there is a demand for spare parts. Moreover, a new office called Pacific Truck Manufacturing Inc. works great so far, supplying "eternal" Pacific trucks with spare parts, restoring worn-out vehicles to "like new" condition and being constantly ready to produce new giants at the first whistle of a potential client.
