Many truckies in Australia hold a strong passion for the Kenworth badge, and, after arriving at Scholz Bulk Haulage in West Wodonga on the NSW-Victorian border, you can see that holds
true for everyone working in this family business.
Craig Scholz’s passion for Kenworths started at an early age through his uncle, Geoff, who was a truckie himself, which led Craig to buy his first Kenworth at just 18, a K123 for work on the family farm in Pleasant Hills.
Then, in 1998, Craig and his brother Wayne joined forces to buy a 1994 T600 with a Detroit for them to drive while buying and selling grain, as well as covering some subbie work. Craig would deliver the grain mainly to Gippsland, and then bring fertiliser back to Pleasant Hills, NSW. The Kenworth worked well, and in 2003 they purchased a K104 Aerodyne to run B-double tippers carrying grain to Gippsland,then loading with potatoes to take to Sydney, then back-loading lime to the local area around Pleasant Hills .
