    I'm currently running one of those brand new Freightliners. It had 101 miles on it when I was assigned it. Overall it's a fleet spec truck but it's nicely accommodating. I've now put over 5000 miles on the ticker & it's a solid ride. The EPU as they are called is 100% battery powered & works pretty well overall.

    My ancient ProStar+ has almost 450,000 miles on it. My guess is it's due for the auction block soon. My left leg wants an auto and my head wants a Freightliner. I keep bumping it against the top bunk and the left storage unit in the cramped thing.

    You'll definitely like the new Shakers. They are very roomy & the top bunk folds up leaving lots of headroom. The cabinets take some getting used to. But I'm loving this automatic myself. This big 15 liter Cummins ISX is louder & much more brutish sounding than we're used to as opposed to the quieter Maxxforce. But it pulls like a salted dog. PM me if you want more details.

    Will PTL hire someone right out of school?

    Yes. I don't know all of the requirements or stipulations so you'll have to speak to a recruiter. But they will give you a chance if you meet all eligibility.

    They
    They hire a lot of new grads. My class had 7 experienced drivers but a new driver class that started the same day had more than twice that many. You'll spend 5,000 miles with a trainer and 40,000 with another trainee as a team.
