Haulmark Trailers Present the Kilclooney Run
Haulmark Trailers is pleased to join Townsville based Schmidt Livestock
Transport's on a run out Kilclooney Station in Queensland's remote outback.
In this video Outback trucker Owen Schmidt takes a triple road train on one
of the wildest roads up in the head of the Gilbert River.
The story of the husband and wife team is a fascinating one and begins with
Liz Schmidt, mother of five, grandmother of three and advocate for the
industry, broke through the traditional male bastion of the road transport
associations when she became the first female secretary of the Livestock
Hauliers Association of QLD in 1990.
Liz had applied for the job only two years earlier; but had been told she
would not be considered because she had four children. When Liz was finally
appointed this position, she had just given birth to her fifth child. Liz
and husband Owen operated Schmidt’s Livestock Haulage from their property
near Townsville in north Queensland. Their fleet of modern-day Kenworths
and the double-deck roadtrains they operate today is a far cry from the
second-hand 1418 Mercedes Benz and single-deck strap trailer they started
with in 1979. Liz is forthright, independent, outspoken and not afraid to
stand up for what she believes. Having worked voluntarily on the LTAQ Board
of management for over 20 years, she understands first-hand the issues
impacting the road transport industry and the hardships that flow back to
trucking families. Owen is thin and wiry, strong as an ox and gives the
impression that he has forgotten more about bush tracks, cattle and
roadtrains then most of us will ever know. Together, they have proved to be
a truly formidable duo.
With Owen working long hours away from home, he could not attend industry
meetings, so Liz often went along as his proxy, and it didn’t take long
for her to become incensed at some of the things the governments were
trying to do to her business through unjust taxes and charges, and
inequitable rules and regulations. Liz became the local area delegate for
the LTAQ and has spent the years since lobbying for the livestock hauliers
on local, state and federal levels. Over the years, Liz has been secretary
of the Cattleman’s Union, served on the Townsville Transport Safety
Committee and has been an active member of Agforce, Transport Women
Australia and the Road Freight Industry Council. In between she has raised
In 2006, Liz won the Cummin’s Road Transport Industry Woman of the Year
Award, and in 2007 was elected President of the QLD Livestock Transporters

Here is a Magirus Deutz hauling a load of wool to Longreach
Here is a short video of an air cooled Magirus Deutz with a Haulmark spread
trailer hauling a load of wool to Longreach station. Check out the old
Holden’s in the main street and the mouth watering beer at the end. Here
is some more info on the Deutz trucks company …
The logo of Magirus Deutz was a stylised M with a sharp, long center point
to represent the tower of the Ulm Cathedral.
Deutz was founded by Nikolaus Otto, inventor of the four-stroke internal
combustion engine, in 1864. The business initially started as N. A. Otto &
Cie in partnership with lawyer Eugen Langen. At that time the duo were not
interested in the emerging automobile industry only in stationary engines.
Technical Director at the time, Gottlieb Daimler was keen for the business
to start production of automobiles and when this was refused he resigned in
the 1870s and went out on his own. History tells us he was singularly
successful. Deutz did end up in production manufacturing agricultural
machinery and tractors as well as some lorries and buses as parent company
of Magirus which they acquired in 1936.
Magirus was founded by Conrad Dietrich Magirus in Ulm, Germany and began
manufacturing fire fighting vehicles in 1864. In 1910 it also started
producing trucks and buses soon gaining an enviable reputation for high
engineering standards with the vehicles capable of operating in the most
“arduous” of conditions. The company was responsible for many firsts
including the first horse pulled rotating fire ladder and the first steam
powered self propelled fire engine. Magirus was also responsible for
inventing the automatic drive turntable ladder, (Magirus Leiter) which went
on to become an essential item of fire fighting equipment worldwide. In
1917 it began production of motor vehicles.
During World War II, Deutz was ordered to produce artillery and operated
under the name Klöckner Humbolt Deutz AG (KHD), Deutz has the unfortunate
history of being the company which produced the notorious gas vans used to
exterminate Jewish victims of Nazi Germany. The vans were used at camps
such as the infamous Chełmno Extermination Camp until gas chambers were
built as a more efficient method for killing large numbers of people. The
total number of gas van gassings is unknown although one document dated 5
June 1942 from occupied Minsk records that from December 1941 to June 1942
three Magirus Deutz gas vans were used to kill 97,000 civilians.
Never the Less Deutz-powered commercial vehicles went on to become popular
vehicles between 1960 and 1980 with some coming to Australia. These were
sold under the brand name Magirus Deutz. In 1975 Magirus was purchased by
Iveco which continued to produce trucks under the name Iveco Magirus for a
short time before dropping the marquee from most markets. Magirus was sold
in Germany and some Middle Eastern countries until the end of the 1980s.
Today, the name Magirus, going right back to its origins, is only used for
fire fighting equipment.
In 1995 Deutz sold the agricultural machinery division (Deutz-Fahr) to the
Italian SAME company which formed SAME Deutz-Fahr. Deutz's head office is
in the Porz district of Cologne and as of 2004 was manufacturing liquid and
air-cooled diesel engines. This facility now produces engines for marine
and power generation which can run on either fuel oils or fuel gases
including landfill gases.
