What kind of truck do you drive?
« on: August 22, 2005, 03:16:44 PM »
This is my first post. I'm from Australia and would like to hear what kind of trucks ppl drive.
I am an owner/operator of a 1995 Western Star 4864 with a 470hp Detroit and 18 speed with a 63" sleeper towing a 45' fridge van (or reefers as you guys call em). Look foward to hearing about them.

2005 Freightliner Columbia with a I believe a 58" bunk.  450 Merecedes power and a 13 speed.  I pull a 53' reefer up and down I-5 hauling produce and usually run between 60,000 and 75,000lbs gross.  It's my retirement job and I love it.

A 1981 Mack R685T. Single axle, daycab with a Maxidyne EM6-250 and 5 speed Maxitorque trans going through what I think is a 4.17 rear axle ratio.
 My boss bought it new back when I was a 19 year old know-it-all just one year out of High School.
Top speed is around 70 mph @ 2400 rpm :shock: . When I'm on the highway, my right foot stays glued to the floor. It has more of a zest for life than I had when I was 24.

Does Werner use that much power (500hp) in most of their trucks?

To be honest with you I'm not sure, I think they do, I know Prime Inc. run their trucks with 500hp.

A buddy of mine is running a 99 werner rig. He got it turned up a bit to 500. Its a nice truck. But u can tell that the transmission has gone through some rough times. But it will get up to 85 and just roll.

The last driver who had the truck before my dad didn't take care of it, I got pictures of his truck as well as his 97 volvo he use to drive for my cousin, When I get my pictures developed I'm gonna send them to Hank so he can put them up for me.
