Despite the current economic conditions, am still seing new trailers sporting the new YRC logo.  Both Great Danes pups and 53's, not Walbash like last year. :mrgreen:

These have been elusive for me, I usually get to preview the new equipment at work but we've not gotten a T660 daycab in Kansas City yet.  My connection with Dallas never got me the pictures he promised..

Pat Salmon And Sons (Big Florida Mail Contractor and Georgia too I think) Freightliner columbia daycab. I also saw an FLD 120 daycab for them. This is kind of weird because they always have ran Sterlings and Internationals. Experimental units?

With Sterling gone under, they're probably buying Freightliners, since Sterling was owned by Freightliner.  Therefore, Sterling parts and Freightliner parts are (for the most part) interchangeable.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

I used to FLD sleepers up in NJ around the BMC in Jersey City & day cab FLD's in SW Florida; this is all as recent as early 2008.

5 FedEx Freight FL Columbia's powered with Mercedes Benz engines in Hagerstown MD. Don't know what the spec's are they were locked I will try to find a driver tonight when I go back. Supposed to be 10 around this part of the system they were in the high 10100 series. Lot's of new KW's no T660's though :

Still think that Prostar looks like the Satan of your yard with the lighting going on there Nate. :evil:

What do the first two digits of the number stand for on a UPGF tractor?

They have the same 385 hp Cummins with no jake that the Volvo's have. Plus a Passenger seat, CD Player, and full gang plank, they are also putting the full frame chain racks on them. They are also geared around 3:90-4:10, where the Volvo's are a lot higher around 3:23, so it definetly makes the difference.



So when do you get to drive it?  8-)

Yesterday I delivered to the Saia barn down on Swan Island here in Portland, OR.  They had 4 brand new Volvos tucked away in the back corner of the lot.
