Ada yang beda dari truk ini. Coba lihat bodinya, terbuat dari balok es! Mau tahu berapa banyak balok es yang digunakan? Lebih dari 5 ribu ton! Balok es tersebut diukir oleh sebuah perusahaan pembuat ukiran es di Ontario, Kanada.

There is something different with this truck. Have a look at the body. It is made from ice block! Do you know how many ice blocks used? More than five thousand tones! The ice block was carved by a company that makes ice carvings in Ontario, Canada.

Perusahaan tersebut ditugaskan oleh perusahaan ban Kanada untuk kepentingan iklan. Rangka truk tetap terbuat dari logam. Balok es kemudian dibentuk dan disatukan dengan rangka tersebut.

The company was given the assignment from a Canadian tire company for advertisement purposes. The chassis of the truck is still made from metal. The ice block was carved and was joint with the chassis.

“Menggabungkan es dengan logam cukup sulit, karena logam mengandung unsur panas,” ujar Heidi Bayley pimpinan proyek ini kepada Metro. Selain itu, menurut Bayley, membentuk balok es harus ekstra hati-hati. Karena bahannya yang mudah retak saat diukir.

“Combining the ice with metal is quite difficult, this is because of the heat inside the metal,” project head, Heidi Bailey says to Metro. In addition, Bayley adds that carving the ice block needs extra care. This is because the ice is prone to cracks during carving.

Truk es ini diberi nama Canadian Tire Ice Truck. Ia bisa melaju dengan kecepatan 12 mil per jam sepanjang 1 mil perjalanan. Sayangnya, truk ini hanya mampu bertahan selama 44 jam karena balok es tersebut mencair. Tapi yang pasti, berada di dalam truk es buatan Kanada ini sangatlah dingin. Karena kita menduduki balok es di dalam truk!         

The truck is named the Canadian Tire Ice Truck. It can go up to 12 miles per hour for one whole mile. Unfortunately, the truck only lasted for 44 hours because the ice block melted. One thing for sure, being inside this Canadian-made ice truck is extremely chilly. We are practically sitting on a block of ice inside a truck!
