Birt cool with Adtrans fridge win

NEW Waeco fridge owner Steven Birt might have only just got back into a truck, but he has six years truck driving experience under his belt.

The Helidon resident only recently landed a new role with Rockies Own and was in the market to buy a fridge for interstate runs.

He saw the Adtrans Father's Day competition in Big Rigs and on the Big Rigs website, and decided to have a crack at winning.

That punt paid off and Birt picked up his new fridge from Adtrans recently.

"It was the exact one I was going to buy," he said.

"I'm very excited to win a fridge, it has come at the right time. I needed one and I ended up getting one."

Birt, 39, said he was looking forward to his next run over state borders in the Iveco Stralis with his new fridge.

"It's good to get paid to see the country," he told Big Rigs.

"I had always wanted to be a truck driver, since I was a kid."

Birt reckons he is going to try and stock the fridge with healthy food.
