Gone are the long days driving in 40+ degrees temperatures along the Tanami with the soles of your shoes melting on the floor boards, the only air coming into the cabin was through a big hole in the hot metal dash and around the melting gear stick boot on the floor. The only cooling came from a warm wet towel wrapped around your neck, unless you were lucky enough to be driving a 320 Coolpoweredd Mack with a Kysor roof topper, everything you touched gave you 3rd degree burns and if you were luck 2nd degree burns. We also shouldn't forget those freezing night hauling 14 tons of fast freight for Kwikasair along the Hume with the windows down, a distant crackling AM radio station playing Don Mclean's American Pie and the waking sound of the 8v71 Gimme screamin under the cab of the almighty Kenworth K125; just to keep the front windscreen from frosting up, it must not of been no more than 2 degrees outside.... ahhh they were the days some would say.

Move ahead 40 years; everywhere you go is air conditioned, your house, the local shopping centre; even the truck stops. Nearly every new car and truck sold today comes standard with air conditioning. With Australia's harsh climate you can go from -3 degrees at night in the middle of Australia to +40 in the north within less than 18 hours of driving, this puts a big load on the trucks air conditioning system and an even bigger load on the human body with fatigue setting in rapidly resulting in injury or death.

Air conditioning in heavy vehicles; namely truck have come along w
ay over the years from the luxury of having only the cab cooled to having the cab and sleeper cooled by separate units like the Ice Pack, Viesa, Ecowind or Bycool to name a few.
