Navigating Australian roads with heavy loads has never been smoother than in a Western Star 5800. This Star model moves with a style that appears effortless. But we’ve engineered it that way. Enhanced by a sloped, high visibility bonnet and set-back front axle, this heavy duty truck can handle a wide variety of applications with peerless manoeuvrability. Put muscle into movement with your choice of engine, driveline and suspension. Your Star, your way.

“When you look at the 5800 Western Star, it is a very versatile specced truck in its standard trim that would suit any number of applications where you need light tare weight and good manoeuvrability,” Noel volunteered. “They are really one truck you can just walk in and order and put it straight to work without any modifications.”
