    Our drivers watch the all miles rate for these trucks! While we carried less 4-6 skid loads in the beginning, it seems dispatch is learning to use these truck's advantages more as we go... I'm sure it is a learning curve.

    While the fuel economy isn't equal to our Promasters, it is more than balanced by increased revenue. As a matter of fact, we are building 2 more right now! When these are completed, we will decide if we will make more of these or build a new patented design we have come up with? I haven't decided yet...

      People who think like that about politics are called libertarian.

      Was reading your post his and why does it matter if he takes loads of 4K since those would be straight truck loads. Also as a businessman, it doesn’t concern me about other drivers and if they survive in the industry or not.

      The other factor is this unit is doing it legally vs MANY of the notorious tandem axle stickers for under 10k Penske trucks out there. Those are the units that people generally have the issue with. You could argue the 3 pallet high roof vans took all those loads from cubes or straights just as easily?
