I don't know whether they are LTL but this pm I saw brand new Brinks Armored truck that was built on a Hino chassis. they were pulling out onto the main drag from the Mall. I had my camera but thought it as an IH from the distance and when I got a better look---too late :oops:

I was walking into the buildiing yesterday to report to work, when I spotted a driveaway company delivering more new equipment.  You might find these rather intresting, as they are identical tractors, except for the color. :mrgreen:






Notice the 5 wheel setting.  Red is Roadway 53's and all new 53's, Yellow is for Yellow's older vans, and White is for pups.  It seems that Roadway and Yellow on the older equipment have different king pin settings.



Finally, here is a pic of the catlyic converter on all of the 2008's.  Nate, do you notice much difference on the way your new one peforms, being equiped with the cat?

Not really much of a difference, but I've never driven a Volvo full time before, but the performance of the truck is about the same as any.
The thing I notice is we are supposed to get anywhere from 7-10 mpg with the Volvo's, but im only getting 5.9, no matter how I drive, cruise or not, I dont know what im doing wrong, or if its even me at all?

Big L,

Thanks for the photos of the new tractors. That Yellow 3 axle is one of the ones reported on in our weekly "fish wrapper" about 2 or 3 months ago, think I did a post on it...

Hey RD600- Did it have the roof fairing & exposed tanks? Last summer, I spotted a Mack CH flattop sleeper from their sister company, Eastern Frieghtways on the NJ turnpike. I wondered if NEMF had any that matched this unit.

Talked to a Saia driver on Saterday morning while fueling, he was in an 08 Volvo, we talked about how a lot of the LTL companies are buying Volvo's up, and he said that Saia is supposed to test out the Cascadia and ProStar soon, he didn't know where, but said the word came from management. Quiet interesting to me, but I guess they have too test, theres more trucks than just the Volvo's.

Something new to me, found a FXF West T300 pulling a 48 foot longbox with lift gate today, didn't think my local barn had one, least last time I was over there, there wasn't, sounds like I'll be taking a roadtrip soon. 8-)

Theres more trucks than just the Volvo's.

It's a great quote by itself... While many fleets understand that, Saia has been true to almost being all Volvos... Sure I've seen a few Internationals running about, usually ex. West Ex., but by far Volvos run the show in that company. Will be interesting to see the test units also. I imagine they will test them for Line tho... Then again Saia is *expletive* backwards on the way they operate, maybe they will test them in P&D, where we'll really see how they break down (pun intended)...
