    Hey! I have a general question about Melton! I was wondering if they are going fully auto or will they have both in the fleet? And also is there an option to ask for a manual over an automatic if you so desire!? Melton going fully automated doesn't stop me from applying but my desire is to have a manual! So these are just general questions. a truck is a truck and my ego doesn't have anything to do with this I will gladly drive an auto I was just curious! And are all the new 680's, Cascadias, and Volvos autos? Thanks and God bless!

    Haha I was as well! I talked with a recruiter and I called the safety dept to make sure I was good to go! Yet they never seem to mention anything about their trucks.

    I just left Melton in June to be an owner operator .
    they order 450 new trucks a year and have a fleet of about 1300 trucks .
    after 400000 miles they replace them .
    all this years trucks are Midroof T680 Kenworths with Automatic Trans . before that 99 % were 10 speed manuals
    Likley all the new guys will get used trucks , so a 10 speed
    all trucks have apus and most fridges except a few t660s that have APUs only they are phasing out the t660s
