    Maybe some stack racks but you won't see any new equipment until October usually.

    One or two new Internationals showed up at CMS. That's all I've seen.

    I would expect some new tractors this year. All they bought last year is 32' liftgate pups, pups and dollys.

    The crank is on the right side so you would look the truck and trailer over more.... and also get some exercise!!!!

    They don't need to order that many new tractors. The way linehaul is shrinking.

    Whats worse....The landing gear handle on the wrong side or where there the gladhands are??????

    And I sure hope the company realize there is mountains in some parts of the country.....Engine brakes and three axles are there for a reason......But I am sure they cost too much.

    Old CF Trailers, so you dont have to disconnect on the traffic side in an emergency.
