“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.
