IT WAS good to catch up with Michael Duniam from Launceston when he rolled in to Kempton the other day to grab a quick bite to eat.
He was driving his own 2006 Iveco Eurocargo 160E28 rigid at the time and was taking a box back to West Launceston from Hobart after bringing a load of ride-on mowers down.
Having been in business for 19 years now as an owner/operator, Michael tells us he has had the Iveco, rated to 16 tonnes, from new, and he finds it an ideal truck.
He also has another one and a UD Prime Mover and is keeping all his gear moving and being "happily busy".
"Business is always a bit up and down ... you just have to work smart and ever harder to make a quid," he added.
