Mark Hayes

MARK Hayes from Devonport dropped into the Caltex at Epping Forest the other day for a much needed cuppa and a bite to eat. Happily he found time for us to grab a quick photo before leaving, driving a schmick SeaRoad 2008 520 Hp FH Volvo and towing a tri-axle tautliner from Hobart back to Devonport. He tells us he has been with SeaRoad for three months, and he is loving it so far. Great outfit, good crowd to work with and a good reliable truck. He told us he always stops at Epping for the coffee and freshly cooked tucker and added would we please tell Bell that if it wasn't for her support, "I just wouldn't be able to do it".
