Big Rigs - - BORDER TRUCKIES -

IT WAS a case of back to the fu­ture for Bryce Shaw and the team from Wagga Trucks at the Henty Ma­chin­ery Field Days, with a 1989 V8 Mack Value Liner tak­ing pride of place on the com­pany’s im­pres­sive dis­play.

Bryce is one of the man­ag­ing di­rec­tors of the fam­ily-run com­pany, which was es­tab­lished in 1997 and holds the fran­chise for Volvo, Mack, UD and Hino trucks, ser­vic­ing a large area from their head­quar­ters on the Sturt High­way.

With 17 trucks on show at Henty, the com­pany uses the event to show­case its prod­uct lines to a wide au­di­ence.

“We’ve been do­ing this long-term,” Bryce said.

“The crowd is good and it’s good for a cus­tomer catch-up.”

The Value Liner was owned and op­er­ated by State Forests of NSW, based in Tu­mut, haul­ing a float around its var­i­ous plan­ta­tion sites in the western Snowy Moun­tains be­fore be­ing pur­chased by the deal­er­ship in 2016.

“It’s been re­built by the boys in the work­shop, it’s a bit of a hobby truck and ev­ery­one in the work­shop has got in­volved,” he said.

The big Mack was also booked in for a run through Wagga as part of the Rive­rina Con­voy for Kids in early Novem­ber.
