We had some great entries for our first monthly All Truck Parts Big Rig of the Month competition, and this Mack truck (pictured) owned by Peter Annetts was our first winning entry.

The judges loved all the shiny chrome, the details including the Tightlines name, bullbar and LED lights.

Mr Annetts is based in Tumut NSW near the snowy mountains and runs Tightlines with his wife Narelle, though he works at Carter Holt Harvey.

This truck is used in a single trailer application and driven by Peter's son Gordon and another driver Peter Quirk round the clock, carting pine chips to the Visy pulp and paper plant.

Peter's been around trucks for a lot of years and worked as engineering and environment manager for Carter Holt Harvey before buying trucks to do work carting for Visy. However he's now gone back to his old job and son Gordon has taken over the truck.

This is the fourth Mack he's owned and "by far the best" he told Big Rigs.

The MP10 is an automatic and "pretty much" as it came from the factory, except for the hydraulics Peter added to hook up a walking floor trailer.

Mr Annetts praised Wagga Motors where the truck was purchased, although Tightlines do a lot of the maintenance themselves it goes back to Wagga Motors for major works.

The All Truck Parts Big Rig of the Month competition will run until March 31. March's winner will be announced in edition 5 and drawn on March 4 (while we previously said March 5 - we've had to bring the date forward a day to make deadline). April's winner will feature in edition seven and be selected on March 31.
