Bronson loves driving in the bush
DBC Haulage was also represented at Wangaratta by 23-year-old Bronson Reynolds, who, like his mate Jack McCullagh, also had a Western Star on show.
In Bronson's case his was a three-month-old 4900, with a 600 horsepower Cummins X-15 providing the motive power.
"It goes better than Jack's!" he said.
The big 'Star had clocked up 298,000 kilometres and Bronson reckoned:
"It's running in well and getting better all the time, it's got more torque and plenty of bite off road."
Bronson had picked up a brand new Kennedy folding log trailer the day before and was set to put the new unit to work in the northeast Victorian forests directly after the Wangaratta event.
Qualified as a diesel mechanic, Bronson came across Bass Strait from his hometown of Lilydale in Tasmania to work for his boss Drew Bardenhagen.
"I only came over here for two weeks and 18 months later I am still here!" he said.
He is content to be away from the rat-race doing his job in the Western Star.
"I would rather be out in the bush and not on the freeway all the time - we also go 4-wheel-driving up in the bush - there's always somewhere to go for a look."
