Mt Perry truck pull pulls a crowd
IT TOOK some huffing and puffing and plenty of muscle but 10 teams showed their grit and pulled a 75-tonne dump truck 10m to raise money for a good cause at the weekend.
The annual Mt Perry Dump Truck Pull pulled a 400-strong crowd to the tiny town at the weekend.
Mt Rawdon Mine general manager Mark Boon said the event was a hit.
"It was a great day," he said.
"Everyone looked like they had an excellent time."
The event involves teams pulling a 75-tonne dump truck 10m in the shortest time.
The winning team was a team from the mine who pulled the truck 10m in 15.2 seconds with the second place team hot on their heels with a time of 15.5 seconds.
"The money raised goes to the chaplaincy which is involved with youth suicide prevention," Mr Boon said.
"It should be in the vicinity of $20,000 raised."
