Jarrod Painting

WELL, in-between showers, we caught up with Jarrod Painting from Launceston at Kempton's Mood Food the other day when he dropped by in urgent need of hot food and coffee.

Jarrod was driving a 2008 Isuzu FSR850 Euro IV rigid tautliner at the time and was on the return leg from Hobart to the depot at Saint Leonards.

He tells us he has been with them for five years and that it is just a great job, travelling all over Tasmania and in fact he loves the whole package from boss to truck to work.

He noted that the Isuzu had been re-styled somewhat by a deer up in the Highlands recently, but was on its way to be fixed and would shortly be replaced by a Daf, which he was looking forward to.

Jarrod says he is flat out, and that suits him, and he really enjoys the winter weather, snow and all.
