I got word from someone who was at a Volvo meeting , that yes the D16 is gone . But they are concerned about losing the heavy haul business and will start pushing the 600 Cummins in their heavy duity chassis. If that's true , maybe Mack could tweak the CHU enough to fit one in?

Volvo has never given Mack the option of using Cummins 15 liter  in the past. Only the natural gas and diesel for the MHD. Again Mack on a short leash.

CL from 03 to 07 cummins isx . Mack should of kept making titans with the new x15 . They'd probably sell more than the mp10 .

I wouldn't touch anything with a Cummins unless that new one far more reliable than the current ISX. My buddies MP10's will walk all over tuned ISX600's.

And every time ours goes down, Cummins has no parts and everything is on back order.

And just had to replace the SCR catalyst. $6800. Yet I can get the SCR and DPF for my Detroit for $1600 for both???? Won't be any more red in our yard.

A very close friend of mine owns several Mack's  and Volvo's that pulls freight for FedEx. All with the MP/D11/D13 engines.  A few years back he got a deal on 3 brand new left over Volvo's with Cummins  engines in them. They broke down at about the same rate as the MP/D engines but were harder to get repaired as not all Volvo dealerships are Cummins certified. And repairs seem to take longer. Long story short , no more Cummins  for him .  I might add though , the Cummins Insite diagnostic software we have is years ahead of the Mack/Volvo Tech Tool software we use. And the Cummins dealer that  we do business with has helped us out many many times and I can't thank them enough.

It could come down to our dealers too Mackpro, as my area seems to have the worst anywhere I have ever dealt. But my area sources parts from the Cummins distribution centres in Thunder Bay, Mississaugua and Montreal and they all seem to always have stuff on back order.

And I still can't figure out why Cummins emission equipment replacement prices are SO much more than Detroit.

Everyone has products that fail, but you know how that goes.....when you keep getting stung it's hard to put your faith back in them again. At some point you try to stop the bleeding.

Totally agree with that statement. If cummins has done anything right it is the insite program.  Insite  is a very impressive Progressive  straight forward piece of work for the most part!

However If Volvo /Mack plans on using The ISX and the ishit/ mdrive as the only trans this makes for a whole lot of Room for Buck passing when it comes down to warranty concerns From what I have seen when there are any kind of programing mishaps there tends to be  NOT OUR PROBLEM attitude on Both sides and it leaves the customer and the dealer hanging!
