  1. Guess I missed the issue. Central Hydraulics like most any other plow truck. When they get to be 20 years old then your chasseing rusty hose ends. Ive seen people buy a truck to turn into a plow truck. The truck is the cheap part. Its the Hydraulics that is expensive
  2. The "Wispering Giant" I believe Mack called the E9. Heard my first E9 back in 1988. Ran along side for miles. Got hooked then & there. Never sounds like they're working. Just kinda lumbering along
  3. Hope that doesn't apply to farm tractors? LOL
  4. I had a Gentlemen approach me about F model windshields. He said the last 2 he bought were $1400. Cant verify that. Nice looking F! Love the 4 headlights
  5. Id like to know the story behind that tag
  6. Oh My!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is Priceless!! 😉
  7. So is that "Level 1" or "Level 2" interior? Or didn't Mack offer 3 levels in early Cruiseliners?

    Requirements:

    True. I forgot about that. Thanks for stateing
  9. Are those cab lights correct?

    Requirements:

    Yes Apportioned plates are easier. But expensive. Don't forget your IRS 2290 if your over 55,000 Lb. Then you'll need an IFTA fuel sticker. Keep track of the miles for each state for reporting. Don't get discouraged yet

    E9 literature

    Well said!! You gotta be real handy or have a handy friends. and then youre going to buy a LOT of beer
  12. Try getting parts for a Cruiseliner with an E9 in it. Thankfully the local Mack parts folks try to be helpful
  13. Wonder how many times the driver caught his foot on the rubber guard over the steer tire
  14. May I add 1 more suggestion? Exterior sun visor
  15. 😃. Oh My!!! Now I don't feel so bad about some of the things ive hauled
  16. Im thinking they side loaded that Dozer? Would be a ruff mount coming over the wheels
  17. They forgot the tunes. But yes that's almost as nice as looking out and not seeing a Hood 😃
  18. You all know what Swift stands for don't ya? See What I F@#ked up Today Sure Wish I had a Fast Truck Sure Wish I finished Training Whats Swift in reverse? Two Fags In White Semi. Now im sure the P.C. crowd will be upset at that last one, but its still funny. Told my boss where I drive part time after we got new KW's with ISX 500 that they are SO slow. He ask "how slow are they?" I said that in 30 years of driving I had a first with these KW's. I got to see the right side of a Swift truck as it passed me up hill!!!
  19. Ive been following this as well. Love it.
  20. Ouch! That stinks. I remember my Uncle who was on the Hartford, Ct fire Dept saying that would happen. Tire chains with a broken cross chains ripping open cars
  21. With wings that tuck in close to the truck I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't fit. If in fact they don't then send a 1 ton truck
  22. Maybe with todays "Steering Wheel holders" they don't dare put wings on em?
  23. WOW!! That's something to see. I remember my father saying that back when he worked for Watkins Construction in the 60's running a scraper was refered to as running the Idiot wagon. Looks like they have come a long way. He was lucky, he ran a B81 on lowbed or belly dump
  24. Oh my. You parked a John Deere next to one of those 4 letter blue tractors. That can lead to cross contamination. Lol
  25. Wow!! Glad I don't live where you are. Most of the trucks around here would be in trouble.
