Keeping busy out on the road

Josh Bennett was on his way to Scottsdale in Tassie after picking up a grader in Launceston when he pulled up just as the rain began falling.

He was driving an A & A Cassidy 2013 T909 Kenworth with a 600 5S Cummins up front, and was towing a Lusty quad float.

“I’ve been here with Adrian for almost five years now, in fact my whole working life on the road, as I got my licence here with him, and you couldn’t possibly find better people to work for, or in my opinion, a better job or truck,” he said.

“My full-time job is out on the grader, but I get to do float work whenever it comes up, and I must admit I really do enjoy getting out on the road and especially in the Kenworth, it is just a great truck and really suitable for this job.

“One way or another you could say it suits me down to the ground, plus they are keeping me flat out and that’s the way I like it. There isn’t a lot of Tasmania that I haven’t seen now, and I am loving it.”

We asked him how he spent his time off, and that drew a smile, as he replied, “After polishing the truck, and I’d like to say that keeping the truck looking the way it does wouldn’t be possible without all the help and assistance I get from my boss, Adrian, then if there is any spare time left, I like to get out on my YZ 250 Yamaha motorbike.”
