look and see whose name is on the registration?
No plates yet !!
was in scranton just last friday night, so took a walk to see the mighty green machines just itch'n to tear up the northeast. from what i could see ,mighty dark back there, they were set up like all other npme trucks, one seaters, tin can in back for glad hands, looked like computer stand set up was the same. maybe 15 screws, rest single axels. but like a dumb s%$t i forgot to check about plates,guess we'll have to take cashcows word on the no plates yet. other than that,they all seemed like the were ready to go.
They Won't be going any where soon.Also a lot of them two seats.
What about this Kenworth, did it ever work out?
They never got any more then a few of them. I believe most or all of them are now retired. Last I saw one was in Cranston.
Back breakers but pulled like hell !!
I hear YRC can't get the titles for them, also having trouble getting titles for the junk they are selling-Thats why the 900 series is back in service.
why would they need the titles to put them in service? am i missing something here? you don't see the title till it's 100% pay-off, lender ussually holds title,even in a leaseing situation. as for the junk, they should have been paid off yrs ago,titles go to banks as yrcw colateral? the worth of those internationals with 700,000 or more miles on them can't be worth that much money in the yrcw "we need cash to survive"deal. heard even when they can sell to out of country places they don't even want cornbinders at any price.
Titles and placing units in service have nothing to do with anything. Those tractors would never have been released to the company without those financial issues being resolved anyway.
Can you say ...."another rumor" !
The twin screws from Holland are probably the ones to replace the Roadway"Jiffs"....just a guess
Tm says new stuff goes into service May 1st.
Thats good to here we need to get rid of some of the old junk we have one of the old mack screws up here in buffalo the hole back part of the cab is rotting out .The line hall guys must love to take that down the road when they have to switch.
you guys will be getting orange and white trucks with a gallon of green paint in each floorboard.
have a bunch of green ones just waiting,no need for paint
Kinda reminds me of the old Redstar new truck daysold green penske tractors with 500,000 on them and came with a pint of orange and white.
Guess you don't about New Penn. We have a line of brand new trucks waiting to go into service, most of the fleet is in very good shape with many new units going on line within the past two years. If it's orange and white, YRC can send them back to the mid-west for you to use.
Not to mention, New Penn repairs body damaged tractors. We have plenty of green paint in stock !
have to wonder if soot levels problem would go away if they would stop turning back speed. setting for 63 when they were built to run
That might help but i think the problem is they are not set up for city .Low speed and rpm are most likley the problem with these tractors like you said they were built to run.
