Truckin’ fam­ily

Deals on Wheels - - Truck Shows -

“I’ve been com­ing here for six-seven years. It’s a good break and week­end away. I’m not en­tered in any­thing, we’ve just come for the week­end, a fam­ily week­end,” Terry Leanne told Deals On Wheels.

Terry’s Ken­worth is a work­ing truck and is kept busy haul­ing live­stock and hay. The Ken­worth is one of three trucks in the fleet that also in­cludes a Ken­worth Aero­dyne and a lit­tle T350. The T404 has a C15 Cater­pil­lar un­der the bon­net and has done 1.7 mil­lion kilo­me­tres, fol­low­ing a re­build at 1.5 mil­lion.

“It’s wear­ing the orig­i­nal paint de­spite spend­ing 40 per cent of its time on gravel roads. It’s 7km of gravel ev­ery morn­ing and evening to get un­der way. I have owned it for eight years and it’ s a beau­ti­ful truck. I am proud of my job and my rig, so this week­end is a great chance to catch up with mates,” he says.
