Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN’ IN TASSIE WITH JON WALLIS -

WE WERE lucky enough to spot this green ma­chine while on the road in Tassie. It’s al­ways great to see rigs that catch the eye and truly cap­ture the power they hold.

This Hulk-like beast was driven by Glenn Mor­gan from Launce­s­ton.

The rig is a Re­cy­cal 2017 Sca­nia V8 R620 with just 33,000km the clock, and tow­ing an even newer trailer.

“They have five such rigs now on the road, and are a great out­fit to work for. I’ve been on the road for about 25 years now, and this is just the best job,” he said.

“Pre­vi­ously I drove tip­pers and cranes all over the state but this is such a good job. I started the day with a run down to Saint He­lens on the East Coast in pic­ture per­fect weather, and I am now on my way back to Launce­s­ton with a bin load of scrap. And the Sca­nia is a bril­liant truck, com­fort­able, a driver’s truck in fact, and ideal for the job.”

Time off was spent rid­ing trail bikes and camp­ing, when­ever the weather al­lows!
