How did you get started driving a truck?


My brother and I got into the trucking business in 1979, which is when I bought my first truck. I’ve owned my current truck for 12 years, and I’ve driven Cat engines for about 18 of my 39 years in the trucking industry.

What do you haul?


Agricultural herbicide. I enjoy hauling for agricultural companies and have never been big into general freight hauling.

What do you like most about being a truck driver?


The ability to make my own schedule, although that oftentimes means I'm on the road more so than not.

What made you choose a Cat engine?


When I was looking for a truck, I knew I wanted a Cat engine because they're known to run for a long time. They're the best out there, and they're reliable. I've only had the head off of it one time, and it was overhauled eight years ago.

What's your #1 tip for other drivers?


Keep the engine the way it was designed. Maintain it and make sure to run clean fuel.
