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!
