    I heard through the grape vine,those tractors have a new style Cummins in them.KW and Cummins ask Estes to road test them.Don't know if that's true or not.

    To many new hires screwing up the new trucks at our yard because they don't know how to maintain them or use them. Or not trained properly. I pick not trained properly.
    This truck is assigned to a run/position.
    Utility guy gets hired, gets a very nice truck, one of the better new trucks. Now the truck is junk. Never did start up on this maxforce. It took hiding truck in yard to keep this idiot away from truck to get it into shop and looked at. (one of those trucks everyone runs for on weekends)
    He(utility guy) kept taking DVR out of shop with out anyone knowing and taking truck before shop can look at it. The truck is messed up now. It's junk! Going back to internatioinal for warranty work. Hopefully it's not to late. Maybe it will be a good truck again. So he can screw it up again.

    Good deal. I'm due for a new truck. Mine is on its last leg. A new truck, an easy schedule, football season, cooler weather 2 games on Monday night. Mercy, I got a good excuse to stop somewhere every night now. Uña más cerveza

    The ones I have seen are brand new 2013 freightliner with 425 Cummins isx motors. They are the big cabs not the short nose trucks like other ltl guys are getting. They use Def and have power windows and power mirrors as well as an upgraded seat from the Internationals. Junior said they will mostly be going to the triple lanes and the lanes with mountains to climb.
