I think that you mean the IHC 8600, and yes, those are common for city P&D use.  Short wheelbase, single axle, tight turning radius, those have been in the Estes fleet for a few years.

Yes CACH I think that is what he is referring too, and yes it is very common in their fleet now. Along with the tandem axles.

If it's an 8600 they're so common up here (both S/A & twin screw) that i pull my camera back down the moment i see the smiley face.  :-D

Ray's correct.  :-) International does make an 8500 tractor. Different grill/bumper setup. Looks like the tractor version of the 4300 straight truck.

I know Ray's right, Roadway has an 8500 (or a cousin model..)  running around these parts for P&D too.  Interesting tip Ray, I'll have to look sharp for new Estes equipment..

I've seen a Roadway & a Ward 8500 up my way. Can't think of anyone else that's got 'em.

That would be it . Sure ain't gonna win any beauty contests & it doesn't look like Big R made a large purchase either.

Rob, I've only seen one T800 for ABF in my truck fanning career, so yes I would say thats one for the grab bag.

Rob, I would say that if you saw that in your neck of the woods, it's probably an O/O, but every four years or so ABF tries something new, though I hear that this time around they're going to be trying the 2008 Mack Visions. :lol:  I'll keep a lookout for happenings in ABF's fleet...
