    My Mack I got about 200,000 from the steers and when I sold the truck the drive's had 320,000 and still have tread.
    The steers were changed because I had a tire balancer go bad.

    You guys seeing rates increase on the intermodal side now? I can only imagine how it is at the Chicago rails now if everyone is on Elogs... Tempers are going to be flaring really bad...

    ####ing cant complain about the rates. i'm good haha, oh besides seeing people going at five miles an horu to not hit driving time at rail.... it's been smooth. it seems the whole operation changed here adn for the better. i've brought my box back to the yard due to having an hour left on my clock.... theyre trying real hard not to put anyone in violation and that's a good thing. work wise? hasnt changed a single bit. did local got my two moves in, hell even three. did regional... ####s not changed a single bit. ELD was overrated.

    you know it's going smooth when guys at my co. who were running HARD AS #### says i will never go back on paper.. i'm guessing the device itself (omnitracs) is to factor in it.. its easy
     
    4noReason and HalpinUout Thank this.
