 what are you going to use it for? If it were me I would look for something in the 500hp range 18spd heavier spec. I personally would stay away, we had a couple at work of that vintage and were troublesome

Delivering fuel. Wheel to wheel . We just picked up a new contract . They use a crap load of diesel so we need a bigger truck for one of my evening guys

I would recommend a Mack CH 475hp 18spd med. frame, I had a '07 and it was the best oil hauler I have driven rode much nicer than my current '17 T880 although the KW pulls harder with 550 Cummins, Mack had 750k on clock when retired we haul 9600 and 10000 hot liquid asphaly

Anything new enough to have Def have the drivers run them hard, need to work them hard to keep emissions working properly, we have guys that baby them and are constantly going into regen due to not keeping exhaust temperature high enough to burn off particulates

When I got the Mack new the dealer told me to break it in how I was going to run it and it was run hard and put away wet and other than a couple turbos that truck never had the motor touched on the 750k I put on it, it was a  pre  emissions 07

No DEF but mine has REGEN.

I run my truck right to the firewall until I get to the speed limit. NEVER have a regen issue... :lol:

6 cylinder Cummins, 379,000... original engine. New Turbo, fuel rail, other misc parts. Mechanic says he wishes our whole fleet was like this...

The same hold true on something like a Cat 4.4?

I can easily drive a Manual.  Much prefer the new amt’s. Just better all around IMO.  Grew to hate manuals when we started order autos in our big equipment

Same here lol . The truck I was looking at has an 18000 liter fuel tank, 4 compartments on it. Would have been perfect

Where are you finding a 2019 Sterling? 2009 maybe? 

Volvo/Mack is my preferred fuel hauling rig. 3 compartment trailers is what I prefer. 

Its in Edmonton.  But I think its an 09. I can't find any 2019?
