Dave McCor­mack

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN' ON THE BORDER WITH DAVID VILE -

MAK­ING a late Fri­day af­ter­noon stop on the bor­der re­cently was Dave McCor­mack, who was be­hind the wheel of 2014-model Ken­worth T909 painted in the dis­tinc­tive blue and white colours of Cam­lin In­vest­ments.

Tow­ing a sin­gle Core­gas-liv­er­ied tanker, Dave had loaded liq­ue­fied oxy­gen out of Port Kem­bla and was Mel­bourne bound down the Hume and Dave reck­oned his Cum­mins pow­ered Ken­worth han­dles the job quite well.

He was hav­ing a bit of a change of run pulling a sin­gle trailer, as he nor­mally tows a dou­ble “pretty much any­where”, usu­ally head­ing to the north­ern parts of Aus­tralia.

With a strong fam­ily back­ground in truck driv­ing Dave first hit the high­way in 2001 and re­ally en­joys get­ting out in the back­blocks.

“Any­where west of the Great Di­vide – I am not a fan of the coast roads, I just love get­ting out in the open coun­try.”

Dave and his fam­ily are based just out of Tam­worth in New South Wales and en­joy get­ting out and do­ing a spot of camp­ing when not on the road.
