The Harvick team appears to have a big challenge for Sunday's race....especially after the Toyota finalists are running up front, strong and happy. Harvick could use his crew chief, as well as a better performing car this Sunday ! The odds look like another Toyota Championship...! I hope I'm wrong!
I asked this question before ...
Do the old 2 speed Eaton (?) rear axles exist and does anyone use them ? It would seem like a good option on a F750 tractor used for beverage delivery or other heavy delivery, especially when paired with the 6.8L.
The rumored engine hold is just that, a rumor. Nobody I know at the plant has seen anything about a hold regarding engines
That said they are dealing with a parts shortage so the plant is being short weeked this week and next week.
We use 550's for 1.5 yd. dumps, pipeline welder, and industrial meter/regulator service trucks. Most (particularly the dumps) run around pretty heavy, but we don't tow much with them. We have a lot of skid-steers, but we favor the larger Caterpillar models. They weigh close to 7,500#'s, with trailer and tools the total is well over 10,000#'s, so driver needs a class A CDL. Since that is the case, our policy is that skid-steers or anything larger needs to be towed with at least a 5 yard class 7 dump.
