    Which one is better: the international 4700, international durastar, or freightliner m2 ?

    Those are pretty much all of a similar class.

    Avoid the one with the Maxxfart engine, if any. Otherwise, I’d say let creature comforts be the determining factor.

    It's what you get used to. I personally like the m2 the best out of them but that's also what I have the most time behind the wheel in so it could be just what I'm used to.

    Out of the choices, the Freightliner would be my choice.

    Drove a '98 4700(DT-466E, 6+1 tranny). Loved that thing to death. It left me stranded twice(trans locked up and six months later a valve or two melted down).
    Drove a '12 4700 with the Maxxfarce and wouldn't touch one with a ten foot pole, even if it was free.
    Been driving Hinos for the past five years and they are really good trucks and they actually have something called acceleration. Only downside(and it's a HUGE one) is an erratic acceleration issue that seems to be related to the DPR system. With ten trucks and a combined 2.5 million miles on them, I wouldn't say no to another Hino, DPR gremlins aside.

    Thank you for giving me somewhat of an explanation of hino trucks... Im probably going to be driving an ihc 4700 in a couple months to a couple of years so i wanted a couple opinions on the 4700's... How do they drive and ride compared to the durastar/4300?

    The 4700s I've driven recently have the smoothest ride I've ever experienced in a truck.
