When it comes to keeping trucks on the move, Cummins has a solid reputation for doing just that.

However, six loyal employees - Mick Cristaldi, Brad Saffin, Glen Jones, Bill Northcott, Mike Fowler and Andrew Booth - decided to take that reputation to another level, all for a good cause, by entering the 2018 Fennell Forestry Truck Pull Challenge.

Held at the Glenburnie Saleyards near Mount Gambier, South Australia on Saturday, October 13, Fennell Forestry has raised more than $100,000 for the Variety Club of South Australia since the event began six years ago, with $25,000 raised this year alone.

The challenge is for a six-man team to pull a Kenworth prime mover and unladen B-double chip bin combination, weighing in at 22.5 tonnes, over a slightly uphill 100 metre course in the quickest possible time.

Fastest time was recorded by the Fennell Forestry team but according to our Cummins correspondent, the engine ‘iron men’ delivered a powerful effort to at least finish ahead of teams representing Kenworth and Cat.
