    I don't really understand what you are getting at. I just mentioned that in 2001 all their trucks were auto. My roommate drove mixers for a larger company called Geneva Rock and all their equipment was automatic as well. I've never seen a front discharge mixer that was manual. I have no experience with rear discharge mixers though.

    Shifting all those gears , a lot of us old timers could do it with sound of the motor and no clutch , I guess if you didnt have a left leg it mite be ok.

    Oshkosh is a product and these trucks as you call them are different layouts then dump trucks however when they purchase trucks you can either buy them at a dealer or have them custom made to your specs

    Did you know the best testers of vehicles for a company like Kenworth, Peterbilt, are drivers of major companies? Those are just examples of truck brands and examples of testers by which they get feedback would say Swift transportation, JB hunt because they buy new trucks and normally give feedback when they have mech issues. I am certain a few drivers have seen this but for those who havent and you walmart truck drivers will prob ogle this


    With absolute certainly, they have manuals trucks they still operate at Geneva Rock either your friend is made up or a liar, personally I find very strange is your very first post is this topic and not a single question elsewhere. But I am certain your this is not your first on the forums just not on this account. See I can make more accounts but this I have better things to do make a fake email and argue to put your point out especially when both companies you have mention have operating manual trucks even back in 2001

    The problem you have is that I have been around this country a lot and have people I know personally just in about every state but Maine I guess I will just be screwed not having enough contacts to have Maine covered but I would rather have known contacts in rl then a bunch of random people you will never meet like on Facebook. I have held many titles for jobs none meant a thing to me I am motivated when I see something I desire and I take I will say being a pilot is a lot of boys dream that's partially correct. But mine involved but wasn't the operating the plane was my desire no it was jumping from them the greatest rush for me was HALO and HAHO I had a great buddy of mine who helped me achieve this feat most people will never do that me on the other I have always wanted to jump from high altitudes.

    My problem was I respect the military greatly but I would be a terrible soldier I don't follow order well I lead most people like to follow rather they know it or not me I have never done what everyone else wanted me to do always doing what I wanted any means necessary to achieve my dreams only to have to need new dreams.

    That is what America is about and why people come here all over to achieve. Most people however let the opportunity pass them by and some by a few inches if they would only stay at it for a little longer instead they quit. Here's a taste what drives me I think many Americans have lost sight of the thought of pushing limits a new frontier and goals

    You need to get professional psychiatric help. Please don't take this the wrong way, but you definitely need some help.

    i was at cr england and tried to do this and was told the schools yard were entirely automatic. my guess is this is the set up at all mega carrier schools at this point but it never hurts to ask
