KEN BEGG’S 2017 SCANIA R730
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.
