Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIES -

“IT’S a great truck, only 30,000km on the clock and run­ning like clock­work!”

Adam Daniels from Ho­bart told us that the other day when he dropped into Mood Food for a cuppa and a re­fresh­ment break.

He was driv­ing a TasTrans al­most new 2018 K-200 with a 580 ES up front, and tow­ing a B-dou­ble with two boxes bound for Toll Ship­ping at Burnie, and then re­turn.

“I’ve been driv­ing for TasTrans for six years now, and I would like to say they are a truly top out­fit and re­ally more like a fam­ily to work for,” he said.

“I re­cently put in three years with them run­ning Melbourne to Syd­ney with seafood, in­ter­est­ing and quite a dif­fer­ent world there. I’d have to say I am more than happy be­ing back home in Tas­ma­nia where it is com­par­a­tively nice and quiet, laid back some would say!”

He added he has been on the road for eight years all up, and he still loves the job and finds it in­ter­est­ing and sat­is­fy­ing, and he has no re­grets at tak­ing it up as a ca­reer. As for time off? “I en­joy camp­ing and be­ing out on the wa­ter in my Shark Cat. And bike rid­ing, in fact I have just come back from do­ing a char­ity ride to Mathinna.”
