  1. If you are talking new. All 3 manufactures can be spec’d with same drivetrains. Freightliners are least expensive & will have lowest resale value. Quality is decent but nothing compared to a Kenworth or a Pete Be cautious of engine specs. For instance, px6, px7 & px8 are non-removable cylinder liner engines. Px9 has removable liners. All can have same horsepower ratings which can be deceiving. It is common for dealers to build with lower cost series engine for better margins. Assuming automatic, be mindful of transmission series as well Front & rear axle weight ratings based on YOUR needs Local dealer is also important for warranty issues in which any & all will have As for downtime, use quality clean fuel & DEF. Majority of issues can be prevented with proper service.
  2. It takes a few years to resolve issues when a manufacturer starts a new line. GM issues bulletins daily to dealers in regards to known problems Second problem is not all dealer ‘technicians’ have the diagnostic skills. They rely on a manufacturer tech lines most times A lemon law lawyer would give best advise regarding buy back. Good luck

Mounted on a automatic requires a hose attached to pressurized port on trans & return is gravity Only required service is lubricating the PTO pump splines & NOT-leaving it on driving
  4. Thanks Its a 4wd plow truck. R/F wheel unable to roll! & was a 5 mile tow, back to our shop. Bed has 8.5t capacity with 5k wheel lift Drove like there wasn’t anything being towed. Recently purchased 3.5x3.5 fork holders for crossbar, definitely should help towing heavier trucks.
  5. With wheel chair lift? Any pictures? Being a f450, i would think front suspension would be overloaded.
