    Your question is too broad. What kind of country will you be running in? Local, regional, or OTR? Team or solo?
    More information from you helps us answer your questions.

    You can't. But a moderator might if you have deep pockets. Of course, asking one nicely might work too. Otherwise, just let it die. It'll get buried in a few days.

    Where do you live for once. Where are you going with that food grade tanker in particular. Who is getting your delviery where by food grade tanker.

    These are the answers that will quickly cough up a suitable number of different tractors to do the work you intend to or are already doing it.

    Just remember to buy the tractor that is on the lot, not in build to order. Those are running 7 months behind and are being canceled at a rate of approx 14% each month as the slow down kicks in. (Cass the source of the information)
     
    Termite20 Thanks this.

    Why sorry? You didn't do anything wrong. If your question was serious and you need information this is the place to get it.

    The best tractor I drove pulling food grade tankers was a mid-roof Volvo with Volvo engine married to an automatic transmission.

    Have you not seen an Indian River tractor? That beauty is a Peterbilt 579.
