Mack evo­lu­tion

New­cas­tle trans­port op­er­a­tor Paul Har­ri­son is well-known for en­ter­ing his Macks, es­pe­cially the older mod­els in truck shows. For Dubbo he brought along an Ul­tra­liner.

“I’ve been made on trucks all my life,” Paul says. “The cousins had trucks and I ac­tu­ally played around on them as a kid.

“When I was 22 I bought a TK Bed­ford. We were fenc­ing at the time and I used to go out bush and cart my own tim­ber.

“My sec­ond truck was a Com­mer Knocker and soon af­ter came my first Mack, a B-model.”

Af­ter buy­ing an­other B-model, Paul went to R-mod­els and then onto Mack V8s.

“We used to do a lot of re­ally big stuff, 250-plus tonne, then I got into Palfin­ger cranes, the re­ally big ones.

“I love my V8s … I think they are un­be­liev­able.”
