No regrets at all, says truckie Leigh

"I've only been here a bit over two months, but so far this looks like a great job, it's a great truck and goes well too! Last month I was in a Coronado, so they certainly have good gear all round, and they are looking after me and no complaints!”

Leigh Aylett from Devonport caught up with us at the Caltex at Epping Forest when he stopped for a break.

He was driving an impressive "Mine-Crete” 2017 T-659 with a 550 Cummins up front and he was towing a cement tanker back to Devonport via Railton where he would load it up for the next driver, having driven it from Railton to Bridgewater earlier.

"I'll load her up and away she goes with a change of drivers,” he said.

"We work all over the state, and they are certainly keeping us busy which is a good thing at this time. I've been on the road for 25 years now off and on, also operating plant, and no regrets at all.”
