Look­ing the goods

Owner Driver - - Owner/Driver -

Troy Mur­phy drove his big cab Ken­worth K200 in the con­voy, bring­ing along his daugh­ter Hayley to ride shot­gun for the day.

The K200 is two years old and, like many rigs around the Mt Gam­bier re­gion, hauls logs.

Troy has been be­hind the wheel for 15 years, the last four as an owner- driver.

“I’ve al­ways been in­volved in the forestry in­dus­try and with the blue gum, so it’s a good time to be here and to have a new truck,” he smiles.

Even af­ter two years of bush work, the K200 still looks the goods.

“It’s in my best in­ter­est to look af­ter the rig,” he says, adding that he chose the K200 be­cause it of­fers ver­sa­til­ity.

“At some stage I might have to go and do some­thing else so I can hook up to any­thing.

“It’s been a great truck to date and this is a chance to show it off.”
