(Sendout Date - August 14, 2013) - TECHNOLOGIES WORTH YOUR TIME
 
August 14, 2013 Vol. 9, No. 16
 
Drivers usually want to yell at me -- and sometimes they do -- when I write that I'm a fan of the latest safety technologies like roll-stability control. 'You don't have to take control away from me,' they al...

HOW DO YOU LIMIT DOWNTIME?
 
July 31, 2013 Vol. 9, No. 15
 
Downtime is a killer. No great big news in that statement, but in recent years I've been surprised by how little attention it gets from both the manufac...

(Sendout Date - July 03, 2013) -  BETTER FUEL ECONOMY IN 2014?
 
July 3, 2013 Vol. 9, No. 13
 
With any luck, people who buy new trucks next year will see a useful improvement in fuel economy, and in subsequent years through 2018 it should only get better. That's the theory, anyway, and you...

June 19, 2013 Vol. 9, No. 12

Busy week, this one. As you read this I'll be at the Transport Canada test track operated by PMG Technologies in Blainville, Quebec where an important anniversary is being celebrated. Then I'm heading further east to Moncton, NB, for the Atlantic T...
The Lockwood Report
(Sendout Date - May 22, 2013) - FRUEHAUF'S HISTORY, BIGGER THAN YOU THINK

Contrary to what my daughters seemed to think when they were about five years old, I don't know everything. That will come as a surprise to absolutely nobody amongst you out there in Readerville, of course, but the girls would have argued my case vehemently 15 or 20 years ago...
The Lockwood Report
(Sendout Date - May 08, 2013) - DETROIT DT12 TRANSMISSION IS READY

Around this time last week I was cruising along a three-lane German highway at a sustained 180 km/h, with stretches at 200, and it felt right as it always does. Safe as houses. Legal, too.

Let's have a look at the Mid-America Trucking Show that drew thousands of folks to Louisville, Kentucky last week.  I've been posting online some of the new trucks and other things that were introduced there, and covered a bunch of them in the Product Watch newsl...
