Nice catch. I'm still going to highly miss my 5600i Paystar though.

That old tow hook looks to be strong for any kind of a pull.

The styling of this has kind of grown on me, especially having seen one in person as well. Have they changed the powerplants from the previous generation Paystar to this one?

Well as you probably know, no more Cat which is what my 5600i had.

The HX comes with either Cummins ISX power or the new International N13, which is an updated Maxxforce now with SCR.

I hear the N13 is better now, but I have no first hand experience with them.

The one pictured here is the longer hood for the ISX.

Thanks for the info. I have heard decent things about the Cummins, but am glad to hear the N13 is an improvement, the older Maxxforce seemed to have a lot of issues, I heard that is the reason UPS got rid of most of it's newer Internationals.

Time will tell. They all have issues now but hopefully that new N13 is as good as the others now. You would think after the Maxxforce fiasco, Navistar would make damn sure it's replacement is better.

Shot this one on the road in Pittsburgh last week.  Notice on the door it has "Navistar Inc, Not for Hire"

Nice Shot Paul. I wonder if that would That be a Dealer's Demo Unit or Maybe a Test Unit for IH?

I'm thinking test unit for IH, great shot Paul. A dealer unit would probably have some sort of ID on it.

Looks like the one they had out on media tour to all the shows and dealers.

Nice. I wish our tri-axles were like that. Not 266" W.B. with 21 foot boxes for shovel operators to overload.

That's what I would think as well, hopefully they have realized how important quality control is. Of course, as you said, all of the newer engines have their issues, but IH had quite a bit more than the rest.
