And what is your loader??  Sell your truck already or keeping your options open?  In any case congrats!  Don't know if you were at this point but my view has always been, when that clock goes off in the AM and your first reaction is.."Oh shit",...time to move on.

Yep. It is safer 28 miles underground than it is on the roads today.

And the "grader" is constructed of????

Old underground mine truck tires with a weight box on them.

We are in the mountains and it's all big hills and cliffs in here. Perfect for an E9 V8!!

I probably would have never left trucking if I still could by a new mechanically governed E9.

 

Still waiting for them to take the Superliner out again. But they don't wanna get it dirty.

Just confirmed what I thought. The resale value of the Star's is higher now.....because they have 65,000 Mack rears and solid trunion walking beams, LOL

The Stars are gliders with 550 Cat's. The owner told me today....the CL's are tougher trucks.
