    Pretty expensive chassis for a vacuum truck :laugh:

    Around here the honey wagons are old GMC generals with screaming detroit power. Not enough money in poo tank sucking to warrant a new truck.

    Looks good now won't smell good thou :clapping:

    probably a CAT most petes have the CATs in them. i like the older models 10 times better though. is it automatic or standard? im guess automatic. ,my dads boss is thinking about getting my dad a pete to replace the mack they have. but also looking into mack. my dad just says i dont want the mack transmission. u have no power and can not shift with the engine brake so you have to use the clutch. BTW that truck looks really sharp. what transmission does it have?
