My engineering apprenticeship included the refurbishment and maintenance of Military Vehicles post-combat. I have experience of compiling and implementing ISO 9001/2 into an Engineering Company (Herd Bull Bars Sydney General Manager) to Lloyds of London first time certification. Should you require an audit of Military Vehicles (drive train, vehicle/vessel integrity and associated systems only) a comprehensive report will be provided with video/online web access and recommendations. My experience includes Emergency Vehicles; whilst General Manager for Herd Bull Bars, Revesby, Sydney I supervised the construction of the trays, water tank, manifolds and equipment for BNS Engineering of 20 NSW Rural Bush Fire Trucks.

Advice for New Vehicle/Vessel/Motorcycle. Private, Government and Military.

New: Always ensure that you are provided with a signed & dated copy of the Pre-Delivery Inspection Report with confirmation that the Inspection has been carried out to the Manufacturer’s Specifications and requirements.

Why? Your purchase has been on a long journey. It has left the factory to be parked until shipment date. It is then loaded onto a Car Transporter and been taken to a Logistics Company Yard or major dealer – for many a sea voyage will also be involved. Different people will be driving your vehicle. When it gets to the Distributor or Importer they will store it until is sold. Then your car, boat etc will be need to be prepared for you. Each manufacturer has a mandatory procedure to ensure your vehicle/vessel is delivered to you exactly as the manufacturer’s specifications stated in the product description which should have been given to you when you placed your order. When the vehicle is entered into Australia the importer will certify that the vehicle complies with all Australian Design Rules (ADR) and local roadworthiness regulation by fixing a compliance plate to your vehicle. The PDI confirms the vehicle complies with all regulations, is safe and all systems operate according to the manufacturer’s specifications. This is particularly important for modified and converted vehicles to ensure correct weight distribution, headlamp alignment and ‘within specification center of gravity’. The PDI sheet is just as important for a Military Vehicle as it is for a Private Vehicle – no military unit should take delivery of a new vehicle unless they have positive verification that the vehicle has been fully tested in all its operating modes. For a Private buyer of vehicles the PDI sheet is your assurance that your vehicle is safe to drive – as stated by the Compliance Plate. What should a PDI cover? In my expert opinion it should be a test of everything on your vehicle that has a dynamic and a non-dynamic state. It should also include a road test which takes the vehicle up to the maximum allowed road speed through all its drivetrain states. Each manufacturer will have their own ‘standard’.I advise you to receive confirmation of what that it is and how it has been applied. This is your opportunity to ensure your vehicle or vessel is ‘right first time’. For Military applications and Emergency Vehicles/Vessels a ‘unique’ PDI should be created in discussion with the manufacture and/or Conversion Company. The conditions that Military and Emergency vehicles/vessels have to endure makes ‘Safety First’ an absolute priority.

The transporting of vessels is a very skilled and complex operation. In the water your hull will be fully supported by the water. On the truck it will have to be supported only in areas which are load supporting. That is why you must only use experienced and qualified Vessel transporters. Vessels should undergo sea-trials to ensure the integrity of the hull, skin fittings, shaft glands, stern-drive boots etc. The vessel should reach its design speeds and handle to manufacturers specifications. Normally the engine(s) of your vessel will have been tested by the manufacturer’s agent – a separate Report should be available to you. To be Cont/..
