Triple ton: The National Road Transport Hall of Fame says there's no straighter load of wool than when Nev Noske loads it. This triple load has 378 bales from three separate properties, hitched to Nev's 1988 Mack Ultraliner V8 prime mover. Pictures: Sally Gall.

He started driving trucks at the age of 17, and hauled his first load of wool out of Star Downs at Hughenden.
