Question MarkThe race for the top spot has been hotting up with our rollover week, meaning even more images in the mix to be crowned the Transport Cafe Truck of the Week.

Trucking’s roving snapper has been out and about papping trucks on the road, and this week’s winner was captured on the southbound M1 near Trowell Services at around noon on the 3rd of July. Trucking FB posted this image on the 7th to a very impressive 128k trucking enthusiasts.

With 1,944 likes, 195 shares and 16 comments, this truck has run away with the title.

One of the comments on FB gives high praise:

So, without further ado, the winner of our rollover Truck of the Week is…

TC Truck of the Week - Scania R620 Walters Group - 18.07.14

This Scania R620 8×4 heavy haulage tractor unit hauling a Hitachi tracked excavator (ZX870LCR-5BE).

Looking resplendent with itโ€™s yellow paintwork, flashing warning beacons and marker lights, the Scania is complimented by top and bottom lightbars.

The vehicle belongs to the Walters Group, which are based in Hirwaun, South Wales. And through the shrewd investigative skills of…people tagging him in the picture, we know the driver to be Graham Hillman.
