Michael O’Reilly

MICHAEL O'Reilly, from Kingston, rolled in to the Caltex Truckstop and Café at Epping Forest the other day for a quick bite to eat, and happily found time for a quick chat.

He was driving a Hazell Brothers 2010 Freightliner Columbia with a 430 Mercedes up front and towing a cement tanker, and he was on his way from Railton to Leslie Vale at the time.

Michael tells us he has been with Hazell Brothers now for five good years with this top outfit, and that he has been on the road now for 30 years or so.

He reckons it's a good job and that it pays the bills and keeps him busy.

He spends his time off flying light aircraft, fishing and power boating and, when he has the time, takes a mobile home to the big island with the slogan 'Dun Truckin' written on it.
