The HX

Was at Truck world this week and saw some pretty cool stuff including this:

Now, I didn't look into it much b/c I'm not really a Cornbinder guy, but this one looks kinda alright. There was also a sloped hood set back HX there too, but I didn't take any pics. Kinda looks like they are the ones set up to take over for the now defunct CAT CT models.

Great pictures of it! Out of all the variations of the HX, I like this one the best, it still looks like the outgoing SFFA Paystar with the exception of the grille and headlights.

BTW, and sorry to jack the thread, but when is Macungie this year? I was given a bonus work vacation and have been debating either doing the Iowa 80 Jamboree or Macungie, but want to make a decision soon as I also have to book things for my South Carolina trip.

Great pictures, thanks for sharing. I gotta admit I like how they look, the rugged/tough look suits a truck much better than the smiley-doofus aerodynamic style of the Prostars.

Can't go wrong with the 9900i/5900i body and chassis. Now if only I could still get a C15 in it.

I got the HX as well. Only the front, not sure why I didn't take the sides.





Got the rear as well but that's about it.

I wonder how those new headlights are? That was my only complaint with my 9900i and 5600i......the single square sealed beam headlights SUCKED!!
I think the problem was they were set so far back in the bezels, you got no peripheral lighting. And in the winter those bezels would pack with snow and eventually turn to 3 inches of ice over the bulbs.

One thing about International, they know how to make a proper tow hitch.
