'Workhorse' 1994 Pete 379 turned a bad day into blessing for one-truck carrier

Mary Beach's 1994 Peterbilt 379

This 1994 Peterbilt 379 is owned by Woodruff, South Carolina-based Mary Beach, owner of Jaxton Carriers. Beach said "a bad day turned into a blessing allowing us to find out about this truck," and it was love at first sight. She bought the rig in November 2021, put some money into it, and "it is now a workhorse." While Beach owns the truck, her boyfriend is the operator. Powered by a 3406B Cat with an Eaton 13-speed, the truck is used on a dedicated run hauling precast concrete for parking garages and buildings in the Carolinas. Beach's company, Jaxton Carriers, is named after her boyfriend's grandson, who passed away before he was born.
