At a recent unscheduled trip to a Freightliner shop a tech told me that the scheduled maintenance is more expensive on CATS than on Cummins. Apearently CAT requires some additional tests, like an oil analasys to determine the course and scope of scheduled maintenance. I don't know that to be fact, just what I was told.


Marty and Diane, Fulltiming!
