I just wish we could see a finished running one already.

Yes I am thinking the same thing

Not to have a go at T Line, but it's gunna be mighty hard to sell something that doesn't exist

I would be interested in buying one, but not if they have never completed a truck yet

Yes. We saw the pics of an unfinished cab, and I do love the idea of an old school simple truck. But those pics showed components like the mirror arms and mounts that look kinda toy like and not like they will last in a vocational environment.

If they got one built and got it out on a job for people to see they would have a better chance.

Can these guys build these new "Diamond Reos"??  I'm sure they can.  Can they build them and make a profit?  Sure -if enough people are willing to pay the price.  My bet is there is no way that is going to happen. Maybe twenty years ago this might have been possible.  But with today's regulatory bullshit and all kinds of compliance issues, I don't see how. 

"Economy of scale" is a buzzword we all hear about-and unfortunately I think it is a real factor.

And by the way- Osterlund tried doing it twenty years ago right?  And that didn't work.

Hope I'm wrong.

Speaking of all the BS regulations Red Horse.......I have a couple small farm tractors and I have been seeing all kinds of adds recently for these brand new Russian tractors like Zetor and some other name that escapes me at the moment, selling new tractors in the USA and Canada with tier 3 engines and advertising no emission systems or electronics.

How can they get away with that when all the domestics are forced to sell us junk?

Zetor isn't Russian, it's  Czechoslovakian, different country all together 

They were always a very clean running motor in the 70's compared to most other brands 

They ran a lot cleaner than the US IH of the day and into the 80's and even the John Deere's so I  feel they would have it well under control today

After looking at that new Autocar I would say Diamond T needs to step up their game if they want back in. That Autocar looks light years ahead of the DT. Wonder if   they will step up?

Gotta agree, they at least need to produce something more than artist impressions of what they wanna sell

Actually no. I spoke to their Canadian sales rep. They do not meet emissions regulations. They have a set amount of units they can still sell with emission credits. Kinda like what all the engine manufacturers did in 2010. Those tractor are 2018 models that are still left over and that is the last batch that does not have DPF's. Now they have to have to conform to tier 4 like everyone else.

They were allowed to sell so-many non-compliant engines and these are the last remaining stock.

The ones I was looking at in the Marketbook were MTZ Belarus as well as Zetor.

 

Anyway, I was just curious. I'm not interested in owning one. I have Kubota's and Allis Chalmers. And they are pre-emissions. It's bad enough I have to deal with that useless emissions crap on my big trucks, but I will NEVER have an automobile or tractor with a DPF on it. Not ever.
