    It is my understanding that Duie bought about 30+ new pre emission tractors a couple years ago and they are sitting in WC waiting to go into service. Don't know if they are for LTL, line haul or transport though.

    Never fear, ADP is buying 60 new tractors this year with around 130 coming next year. Looks like they will be split between Volvo's and Freightliners.

    There will be different counts on how many and what kind. We'll just have to wait and see. 60 is the count for this year though. Got that from a very reliable source.

    any employee who went to the company meeting were told how many were odered and what was coming in. The Volvo's all have volvo motors.

    it seem so. They tested one for a long time, must not have been that good. In reality if you buy a mack, the motor is the new volvo motor. mack is owned by volvo, like most companies its one shared design.

    Boy some of those old relic's they re-activated are pretty nasty... 3000-3100, they really need to put those to rest for the final time. I don't know which was worse? the noise, the vibration or the smell!!!
