Volvo Trucks - 175 tonnes road train through the Australian outback - Drivers World (E08)


0   0

Maxine Taylor, 52, keeps her family tradition alive, driving a 175-tonne rated road train across the Australian outback in 48-degree temperatures. Her father and her husband - both now passed away - had the same profession.

“I think my husband would be very proud,” Taylor says, adding that her father drove a Volvo too. “So it’s very close to my heart.“

Six days a week for eight weeks in a row, she makes an 800 kilometre round trip to pick up manganese. After the eight weeks have passed she gets two weeks off before it all starts over again.
