    You are right. That's why YRC is called "the cancer of the trucking industry". From past history any company that is "infected" with the virus called YRC, the end is inevitable. YRC drains the life blood out of whatever company they buy out with leveraged bank loans until there is nothing left to take. That has been the MO of Yellow ever since the 90's. The employees suffer (both middle mangement and union members) while the top management keep stuffing their pockets. When the CEO and his top cronies feel they have stolen enough, they leave with the bonuses and "golden parachutes" that were written into their contracts. Then new replacements come in to "save" the company and the whole process is repeated.
    It's like a script written by Bernie Madoff.

    Too expensive......just cover the cracks with old grease.......the "prima donna" drivers will not touch any grease during any pre-trip (assuming they actually do a pre-trip)

    Better explain what sarcasm is. Th rookies reading this will take you serious !
    The way Holland maintenance is now after the TRCW takeover, they would like that . until the wheel comes apart and someone dies.
    Then it would all be on the driver (if he's still alive). Lawsuits would follow. Holland would claim no knowledge of any defects. They would say "Driver's responsibility to pre-trip vehicle and accept it as safe to operate". Once that is done and unit is on the road, Holland will "hang you out to dry".
    I've seen it happen.

    :tr10driving03:My guess is 1/2 mile, through some of our yards, with craters that double as potholes. Watch the shiney ones, those are the roofs of the PTS trailers that fell in.

    With those new shiny wheels, it should be good for another million or two.
