    These have arrived at KC, PX9 power with auto transmission. New features include air cab returning after a hiatus and robust hookups for 12v, CB and ELDs.

    Is the suspension spring or air ride? I drive a city truck with an air ride cab but spring suspension now, and after a 10 hour day and 220 mile route each day it kills my back.

    Yep! These look like they are ready to hit road with a 42 foot dump box. Way to go purchasing folks

    Yes air ride cab and suspension. Also movable 5th wheel. I have 3500 miles on the one I drive. I like it. I pull a pup lift gate daily good window views and turning radius.

    I wouldn't say new, there is plenty of centers that already have these. Seen a few on the LIT yard awhile back

    They are new, that's why I specified KCY in the original post.

    A PX9 power plant? Interesting choice. Still Cummins power, but painted and branded for PACCAR.

    Not the kind of unit you'd want to be pulling a full set with, but it'd be perfect for low-height G trailers and tailgate pups.

    I need to double check, but I think they are only permitted for 37,000 gross. Basically a "pup load" gross weight. We'll get back to you on that, unless someone else has that info handy.

    Glad I double checked!

    They are permitted for 48,600, and up to 54,000 in one State...

    Is that like a 90s International 8100 with a DT466 pulling a set of pups back from the paint company? 20k at least on each pup!
