    Looking at the new Internationals. Either 19500 or 26000 GVW. Smaller would be a "Terrastar."

    Has anyone had any experience with the newer engine being offered "Maxxforce 7" (300 HP/660 lb.-ft. torque) and the transmission, Allison 1000 ?

    I'm used to Isuzus in the 19.5K-26K GVW range, so the added power of these trucks is attractive, especially when towing a large skidsteer.. though I can carry less actual payload because they simply weigh more.

    Any feedback appreciated.
