Steve Lovell

WE CAUGHT up with Steve Lovell from Westbury the other day up at Kempton when he rolled in driving Craig Scott's Hilltop Transport 1995 Mack 427 HP Mack Elite and towing a load of scrap on his way from Brighton to Devonport.

Steve tells us this is one of five trucks in the fleet, and says he has been there driving for Hilltop for 18 months now. He is thoroughly enjoying the job and the outfit.

He also added that he is yet another ex-logger who watched the work run out after spending 35 years out in the forests.

However, he says he is acclimatising to working on the highway and is even coming to enjoy it now.
