735 new trucks on the way, no city units will be bought, old road units will go to the city.
are these road unit??
We haven't bought any true city power equipment in years except for a few straight trucks. We've been using road tractors for city use since the early 90's and before. The last city only power units we bought that I can remember were Mack MC model in the early 80's.
I will believe it when I see the new units on the yard. I remember there was a post before that someone posted the tractor numbers and low and behold I checked the numbers and they were correct.
Are we getting any twin screws? We have about 70 tractors and only 1 twin screw. It makes no sense. Drivers have to refuse heavy loads because all they have is a single axle.
I was in Atlanta at the end of November and they were getting in all brown Internationals.
From a Mack website. They are purchasing 530 Mack cxu models.:o
Yup just got my new city unit a old road unit with 1.6 million miles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Old road units to the city has been the M.O. for at least 20 years. International 2375s and the old MB Macks were the last.
From Mack website supposed to be getting 1000 2axle and 3axle Mack CXU's. All parcel I presume
Building 30 a day starting in april
Can anyone tell me why this company refuses to buy twin screw tractors? Indianapolis terminal has around 70 tractors and not a single twin screw left in service.
I understand we dont need every tractor to be a twin screw but a few would be nice. We have some heavy switches we do.
