Justin Crap­per

Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIN’ -

Big Rigs was fortunate to catch up with Justin Crap­per from Se­bas­tian the other day at Bridge­wa­ter on Lod­don in Vic­to­ria.

We found him head­ing out with a wide load from Wed­der­burn.

He was head­ing for Ray­wood with a tri­axle drop-deck trailer loaded with over­sized agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery.

Justin was driv­ing a 1989 K-100E with a 425 Se­ries 60 up front and his brother, Leigh, was do­ing the hon­ours in the pi­lot ve­hi­cle for the road trip.

The broth­ers told me they were part of a fam­ily busi­ness in Se­bas­tian which op­er­ated four trucks, car­ry­ing mainly grain and hay and agri­cul­tural freight, and that they were all keep­ing fairly busy.

“I also do a bit of work with mo­bile cranes and do a bit of farm­ing,” Justin said.

“And af­ter six years in the job, I’d have to say I’m happy all round, and no re­grets at all.”

When asked what he likes to do when he gets some time off, Justin said he liked to spend it all with the fam­ily.
