    Do any of you guys know why GFS bought all those twin screw drop axles in the early 2000s?
    There are still some in the fleet, however many have been phased, out I'm just curious to know the thought process behind those trucks. You don't see them as often any more as all the newer stuff is twin screw, but I'm just curious as to what the reason for those trucks was.

    Lighter weight, less rolling resistance.

    We have a couple of them at our yard well, the one is actually a Sterling it's in the shop right now it has major major problems, so much so that the bill to fix it is like what the entire trucks blue book value is, I think they had to call up to the warehouse and ask them if they just wanted it towed up there.
