    Yup, starting in 2010. Can't wait to see what rolls of the line. Detroit and Cummins must be smiling about this.

    There was something in one of the trade magazines, didn't read all of it yet. Surprised that Cat would give up this segment of the business, sure see alot of trucks with Cat power out there.
