Thanks Peter. Most I laughed all weekend. As I head back to the grind tommorow morning.
LOL. Thanks Peter. When I read the top half of the Forest Gump Pic and before I scrolled down my mind responded STUPID IZ AS STUPID DOES. or something like that. When we meet and shake hands this July at Carlisle Please bring your Camera. I'd like to have somebody there snap a pic of both of us to take back to Graham so he can put a face to His 'n my conversations. Stay Warm, Jer
First I said, "No effing way. Never, etc... "
Then I read it through to the end.
Now I wish it had been around back then,
Dave, this needs to be your new truck. You actually may stick with it until 65.
Heavy-duty electric truck driver ditches diesel - FreightWaves
I really had the shit beat out of me, as you all career guys do/did.
They would need the range up. I'm at above 250 almost every day. Like tomorrow I have to go to Euclid Ohio that's 150 one way. I'll have 370 mile in tomorrow. I'm not against it. Even better would be a driveline kit for a old truck like mine. It's the Cascadia that I have a problem with not the electric.
I'm still not staying full time till 65. No way no how. They have ruined this industry which had problems to begin with.
My son and 2 of his friends all have truck drivers as dads. All of us are local, and not one of them has any interest in trucks/driving. I guess they see the headaches with this career.
The 2%ers won.
I was just reading a article in the latest LandLine Mag. It was talking about autonomous trucks, and or remote driving trucks. Article stated about Boeing 737 Max problems of human monitors (pilots) can't react fast enough to assess, take away control from the machine, to get control of the machine. So how a person in a office is supposed to do that is beyond me.
Article went on to say that by 2030 the future of autonomous big trucks will be clearer and by 2035 if your not changing in that direction your dying off. I'll be 63 in 2030 (going semi retired), I'll be 68 in 2035 and dying off as far as part time driving goes. I hope I get to fuck with a couple of those driverless machines before I take my keys out of the ignition.
I would like to see how easy it is to move them onto the shoulder (breakdown lane)
Saw this today...
It's only an 8-speed...
Don't need the splitter.
And you don't need/use the clutch.
9 speed actually.
Lo position is 1 and depending on load and axle ratio, optional for starting off.
Like you say, optional.
I like a 13spd. I never haul heavy enough to ever really need a 18spd, although there are those pulls where your in between the split is good for that.
Nothing beats a 15spd for reliability. A 13/18 always seem to have a finite life. Seems like every 15 I have ever seen has a gazillion miles on it and a couple of engines in front of it. Or it is on the 3-4th truck it's been in. Mine is no exception. 3rd engine, I have no reason to not think it is the original trans.
