    To each his own. I've driven all three while with USX and personally I'd rather live in a 780!!

    But they already have the parts in stock ,and some trucks are still under warranty.I can see replacing them when they have the 500,000 mi.
    I loved the 780 when I drove for USX. I retired May 2009 from them

    Well things are set and I need to confirm date by the end of week.
    Do you guys run loads to Canada?
    I was told they have new terminal in shippensburg,PA or if it's considered a terminal. But for hometime , I can fit the power unit in driveway but NOT :biggrin_25513:the trailor, is there secure locations USX has in Philadelphia area?
    I guees i'll find out soon enough. I'll keep you updated

    not required to run to Canada i just ran a load that was going there. there is a drop yard in kenmore ny. I have run a few loads to other drop yards near border as well. Shippensburg is a full service terminal about 130 miles from philly you also have camp hill terminal as well. Not sure were in Philly you live but I have a house in south Jersey i go to alot. I have bobtailed from shippensburg a few times.

    I live in Northern Colorado and we do not have a terminal here. There is a drop yard in Denver but I have been told I can drop a trailer at the Budweiser plant or the WalMart Distribution Center near my home.

    Well I need to make up mind between USX or Schneider.

    SNI-offers 6 on 3 home,slip seating, .31cpm HHG /.115 of that per diem for every mile, NE regional & parts of Canada

    USX- offers national(OTR) sliding scale-.25 to .34 pending length of haul Rand McNally, 12 on 2 home,get assigned ur own Trk, 70% drp&hk 98% no touch (sweet), take trk home (sweet) Teaming available

    Cons
    USX- automatic
    SNI- stuck in NE,different TRK each time I go out, length of hauls 150 to 350
    yeah the hometime looks good but is there enough miles to make some$$$
    in 6 days.
    I know I gotta do whats best for me and the family but I'm getting tired of banging my head against the wall !! LOL
