Hard-won Million

In Million Mile Club, March 20221 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineApril 20, 2022

Earning your million doesn’t come much more ‘hearty’ than pulling logs off the Coromandel, and that’s where this old trooper has amassed the vast proportion of her 1,900,000km.

New to the Trevor Masters fleet in 2003, the K104 runs a Cummins Signature Gen 2 motor, 18-speed Roadranger manual box, and a Meritor 46-160 rear end on Kenworth AG460 suspension.

Running as part of the RFH Group today, she’s flanked in the company’s Kopu yard by the many more K200s taking up the mantle in this tough neck of the woods. That aside, she still holds up her end of the bargain, completing whatever’s on the schedule, in the hands of driver Peter Masters who recalled the motor having a rebuild at the 1,000,000km mark. If you’re on the Coromandel coast road and see No.7 trundling towards you, give her and Pete a wave.
