Local owner- driver Shane Palmer brought his son Jack to the Heywood show along with his Fuso.
Shane has just the one truck, which usually pulls a 20-foot trailer with a sliding drawbar for through loading. It gives him 48ft of deck space.
“We cart stock locally and anywhere we have to,” he says.
Based in Hamilton, Shane has been busy with a good lambing season.
“We have been flat out because everything is selling well and it’s only just starting to quieten off a bit now,” he says.
“We’ve had the time to give it a good polish for the Kyneton Show and another for this one.”
The Fuso replaced an old ACCO, and Shane is happy with the choice he made.
“We bought it in 2015 and it’s been a good truck.”
