Ja­son Harders

Big Rigs - - BORDER TRUCKIES -

CHURCHILL Trans­port of Hol­brook was well rep­re­sented at the 2018 Al­bury-Wodonga Con­voy for Kids, and among the 12 Churchills trucks con­tin­gent was Ja­son Harders of Al­bury.

Ja­son was driv­ing a Ken­worth K200, pow­ered by a 620 Cum­mins, which he puts to good use run­ning a fridge van be­tween Bris­bane, Mel­bourne and Syd­ney.

Ja­son has clocked up a quar­ter-cen­tury on the road, start­ing out with Green­freight in Myrtle­ford load­ing and tarp­ing tim­ber on lo­cal, oper­at­ing a Flint­stone Mack be­fore up­grad­ing to an In­ter­na­tional S-Line.

Ja­son reck­ons the up­grades along the Pa­cific High­way have made the run up the East Coast a lot bet­ter than in pre­vi­ous times.

He’s been been with Churchills for a cou­ple of months and likes to keep his truck well turned-out. “They run top gear and I keep it like my own,” he said.

At home Ja­son has a 2015 Har­ley-David­son Soft Tail which he takes to the wind­ing roads of north-east Vic­to­ria on a week­end.

“It’s my ther­apy,” he said with a grin.
