Re: Class 6 trucks, Cat vs. Cummins vs. MBE vs. Navistar?
Since I work on the MBE the sales person should have explained that the MBE was designed to go LESS than 100k/year. However the fleets are running the MBE 4000 engine on the OTR trucks. The MBE 900 is classifyied as a pickup-and-delivery type engine. That is what they have told me. I'm not the sales person, I just fix them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img] If you do buy one, get the engine with the engine brake. The 900 series has to be ordered, the 4000 engine has it standard. The engine brake can be used in city useage, you cannot hear it in use. The cost to install one on the 900 is not economically realistic. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif[/img]

It is said if you sit by the river and watch the water flow by long enough, your enemies will pass by. This I believe to be true. It is also possible to watch your loved ones pass by as well.
