  1. Five years and done like other Freightliners.
  2. Big $ to replace windshield.
  3. Maybe advanced, but will it last in the real trash hauling world? Trash trucks have to work everyday, that is why there a lot of Mack MR"s on the road, they are strong.
  4. White with Dozer

    That is my point, a truck setup right could move a lot weight. A 534 Ford T-950 was a good low cost dump truck. A road builder I worked for in the 1970's still had some with automatics, they were better off road in sand than any other truck. These trucks were used maybe 5-6 months in a year at most.
  5. White with Dozer

    How did that White 4000 move what looks like a Cat D8H without 500HP+ over those Vermont hills?
  6. Truck Manual

    So a Mack (Volvo) dealer cannot get parts for these trucks?
  7. Truck Manual

    What is the real reason Volvo does not support this truck?
  8. News- Ford Medium Duty Trucks

    You think Ford builds a truck with a junk powertrain that no real truck owner will want, but they sell a lot of them anyway. Ford sell's a lower cost truck that does the job and makes them money ( Ford and the buyer). A class 6 truck is not comparable with class 8 and should not be. The Ford powertrains are holding up. But I have said before, if I was in the market for a heavy class 7 truck (33 GVW+) I would take a good look at Mack MHD. A F-750 is not as good as a MHD in a hard use job, but will last in a low mileage job and cost a lot less to buy.

    That firm has a management problem.
  10. News- Ford Medium Duty Trucks

    Ford builds a low cost, simple, yet strong truck that lasts and always has. They sold more F650's last year than all the trucks Mack sold (HDT sales figures). I would bet there are more Ford class 6-8 trucks on the road running in the US than Mack and a few others. Mack built a better truck, but you paid a lot more for one. There are a lot of 1998-1970 L-series still working, with no real dealer support.
  11. Day cab CL713 tractor 16,000-18,000.
  12. Ford Market News

    This is not about real estate, it is about a location that will attract creative young people to an area they will want to work and live in. Detroit is changing, hard to explain to outsiders, but it is. I may not like it, but it is real.
  13. Ford Market News

    The Moroun family ( Big in Trucking ) should be glad Ford will take that off there hands. If I was Ford, I would give them 5 - 10 F750"s (used) for it, no more. But Ford management people I know say I do not understand, young people can ride there bikes to work there from downtown Detroit. That area is many year's from being cleaned up. Funny most (all) Ford management live 30 - 50 miles away.
  14. Ford Market News

    A waste of money by Ford.
  15. The two Ford heavy truck only dealers in Detroit area became Sterling and Ford. One is now a very large Freightliner dealer (selling way more then when Ford only). The other still sells Ford Trucks only, after Sterling went away.
