Ah! You just can't keep a good man down, lol.
Sure can keep a bank balance down though lol.
Those parts, seals and gaskets that seem cheap tend to add up very quickly.

Only $150k, ha ha. but nice
I have mates working the quads out of Hedland for $200k PLUS. but they have stupid work calendars IMHO.

I think the industry has alot to answer for though and why it's were it is. Even now with the heavily reforming industry they are going from 1 extreme to just a different extreme.

Love my profession, but something I learnt many many moons ago..

Interstate truck driving is NOT a job, it's a life style

If the owners are paying their drivers that much, they must be doing alright, then how are the cattle owners doing?
No wonder steak is expensive.
I don’t begrudge anyone making a quid.
Anyone want to buy a 48 year old who definitely hasn't been worked out. Should be plenty of work left in him. 🙄

Easy with BFM, 70 per week, 140 per fortnight. (the law). But to be fair I did add a extra 5hrs because, let's be real how many people put in exactly what they do..

Then there's NT and WA. I can work 15hrs to 17 hrs per day, max of 45hrs in 3 days.

More to it than that, but I can smash out well over 75hrs per week, and do.

Must be nice to be young. 😎 I remember a coupla years ago 😉, bride and I were working 7 job’s between us, up early and home late. And now we have a 48 year old who’s only ambition in life is his next bong, living with us and showing no indication of moving.

And I have 2 of his clones here. Please take them off my hands. You have proved your tolerance over the last 48 years, i can’t put up with them for that long. 24 years has been bad enough.
They will be at the HB bus station at 6. Don’t be late !
They will be awake by then.
