    I'm sure mr Estes thinks they are beautiful considering how much money he saves by not buying a higher quality truck. Yes, my company does same thing

    I have the Photobucket app on my phone. Uploaded it there and copied the image URL.

    On this site, click the image button (next to the smiley face above the message box) and paste the URL in there.

    Looks like that international in the picture has air ride, I was told the freightliners do too. We've got a couple of the 860KW gliders for city tractors now, seems like they put them on the road for the first 100,000 and the turn them into city units. Drove a 660 tandem the other day and there's no way I could drive one everyday, no room.

    Just saw a 2018 international ProStar. Looks good. Estes buying new trucks more frequently. Business is good.

    ANy new equipment is good, I just wish they'd stop buying Internationals altogether though. The KWs and even the Freightliners are much better trucks imo.

    I agree, they are junk in my opinion.

    These look like a M2 on steroids. The cab sits up as high as my Cascadia when one parked next to me while I was taking my nap last week.

    A p&D driver told me they pull better than the transtars with the maxxforce. Pretty sad cause the new city Freighliners are only rated at 66k.

    I haven't had any issues with the cummins Prostars. Much better than the trucks of old. Just wish they had power mirrors and windows.

    The newest version called the L T does have power mirrors and windows. The L T is replacing the Prostars. Same cab, different doors and hood. It has mirrors like a Cascadia.

    The one I saw didn't have mirrors like the casacadia. But I have seen those on the road. That was the first thing I noticed. They were like semi octagon, if that makes sense. Maybe I'm wrong, I'll investigate thoroughly next time. Hope Estes buys bigger property too.

    I drove an LT with manual windows. And a camera of course. It was just ok. Prefer my 400,000 mile KW.

    Probably more to do with posting on Facebook and other social media, wrecks negative stuff. But , That would include here according to the what you are saying. I have not heard this. Nothing about this thread was meant to be negative, just informative.
