With a de­gree in agri­cul­tural sci­ence and ac­count­ing, along with a ca­reer in bank­ing, Ken Begg re­turned to his favourite vocation – truck driv­ing. When his pre­vi­ous truck reached 1.2 mil­lion kilo­me­tres, he re­warded him­self with the pur­chase of a Euro 6-com­pli­ant 2017 Sca­nia R730. The big V8 comes with an au­to­mated man­ual trans­mis­sion (AMT), as well as Knorr Bremse EBS/ABS brak­ing and sta­bil­ity roll-over sys­tem. It boasts a pay­load up to 65 tonnes, thanks to Gra­ham Lusty Trailer’s large ca­pac­ity cus­tom tip­pers and dolly. It’s the per­fect set-up for Ken as he hauls stock­feed be­tween Mil­dura and Dalby. But it’s the stun­ning paint­work, thanks to ve­hi­cle makeover spe­cial­ist Mikutta in Ade­laide, which makes the Sca­nia stand out from the crowd.
