Tim Rigby

Big Rigs - - TASSIE TRUCKIES -

GREAT to catch up with Tim Rigby from Delo­raine when he dropped in to the Cal­tex at Ep­ping For­est for a quick cuppa and a break.

He was driv­ing a Rayner Trans­port 2017 CF 510 Hp, 16 speed Daf 105 and tow­ing a tri-axle drop deck Taut­liner at the time.

“I’m on my re­turn leg back to Launce­s­ton af­ter cruis­ing down to Ho­bart and sur­rounds car­ry­ing gen­eral freight, and surely en­joy­ing the sun­shine,” he said.

“I started out with Chris seven years ago work­ing in the ware­house, but fi­nally got up in to a truck and out on the road driv­ing three-and-a-half years ago, and I’m still lov­ing it, the feel­ing of free­dom, chang­ing scenery and all that fresh air at last!”

He told us they now have four “105” Dafs now, and with the big­ger en­gines they pull much bet­ter.

“You cer­tainly no­tice the dif­fer­ence on the hills,” he said.

“It makes driv­ing a real plea­sure and I am hon­estly lov­ing the job, and espe­cially these runs to Ho­bart.”

He told us he spends his time off vol­un­teer­ing at the RSL with camp­ing and fish­ing when­ever the op­por­tu­nity arises.
