Two council lorries have accumulated over 1 million kilometres each.
The Scania lorries, which are both 21-years-old, are part of Kerry County Council’s machinery list.
The council outlined its list of machinery and fuel costs at the monthly meeting, following a motion from Fianna Fáil councillor Niall Kelleher.
The council owns a number of Scania, Renault and Volvo lorries, with the vintage of the machines generally ranging between 15 and 25-years-old.
Most of the vehicles have milage of between 400,000-800,000km.
However, two Scania lorries have clocked up in excess of 1 million km each.
Over the past seven years alone, these 21-year-old trucks have required over €200,000 in maintenance between them.
Over the same period, the machines used a combined €200,000 worth of fuel.
Two council low loaders – which are used to transport excavators and heavy equipment – cost a combined €120,000 in maintenance over the past seven years.
Kerry County Council says a number of its machines are required to work in challenging environments, which necessitates higher maintenance costs.
It adds that a programme for the replacement of plant is reviewed annually.
