All I can say about these e9’s are they are a bear.I brought a 98 cl700 with one.The dealer,McDevitt Mack from NH had it on order when I reach out to them.I used it to pull our lowboy.My mechanic was an ex Mack dealer mech. so we turned up the pump and boy did she smoke,but the power was unbelievable.I had a Cat 375 on the trailer minus only the stick and bucket and pulled a 7 mile hill on rt81 here in pa like it was nothing.l sold the truck but been thinking about buying it back.Good luck with the bear you buy.
