Bevan Hirst

In Just Truckn Around, Mack, September 20211 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineOctober 14, 2021

Bevan Hirst, Hirst Haulage Ltd, was spotted by Rochelle Thomas parked up at Rangitikei Quarry having his break while on the run down from Auckland with a load of pet food.

Bevan was driving his impressive 2012 Mack Super-Liner, powered with an MP10 engine, supported by the other stalwart of road transport, an 18-speed Roadranger gearbox.

Based in Te Awamutu, Bevan has been driving trucks for 25 years, 15 years in Britain. He’s been an owner-operator for the past two years and loves just being able to get on with it. He loathes traffic and says if he could change anything, it would be the RUC systems, which should be done away with in favour of a fuel tax.

Bevan’s vexing question was: steak pie or bacon and egg? Bevan said, without hesitation, “Definitely steak!”
