ESC Posted June 30, 2020 Share Posted June 30, 2020 I am very happy with our Jerrdan units. We have 2 MPL40s and 3 Jerrdan flatbeds. They all work well for us and we are happy with Alan and Nussbaum Service. We also have a local shop that does all of our repair and they are great too. These greaseless pin systems have been terrible. Any time a pin needs removed it is a nightmare and turns into a huge labor job. When we used to run Vulcan they were all grease-able and we take care of lubing things so pins would always come right out. Our current issue is on a ten year old MPL40. We are getting some scoring on our boom lift cylinders. Something inside is coming apart and it’s going to need new cylinders. You can’t get to the back side of the pins on these. It’s going to be a huge nightmare knowing they haven’t been out since it was new. Our trucks are low mileage and well maintained. The downside is we always have them outside as we don’t have anywhere local that we can store them indoors.
