    It seems more and more O-T-R fleets have Macks in them these days. I know that Macks used to be common in local and regional fleets with daycabs or tanker fleets, etc., but it seems like Mack is gaining in popularity across all fleet types.

    Does this growth have to do with Volvo's ownership/marketing, or does the Mack lineup have an edge on its competitors these days?

    I think its less they have an edge and more that new trucks of any stripe are hard to get right now so everyone is snapping up what they can.

    No edge over volvo. Same drivetrain and everything. Not the Mack of yesteryear Lol. They've actually lost market space in the vocational area to paccar

    WOW. Thank you. Because I was seriously considering them. What is a "cry sheet"? What year are your Anthems?
