Save upwards on $125,000 or more on life cycle cost or total cost per acre over a comparable ground up unit per machine. That adds up quickly, especially for larger operations where many machines are used.
COMPARE FOR YOURSELF... it’s a pretty clear choice!

Imagine that everyone was using Peterbilt floaters and a company starts promoting a ground up unit, costing more money, fewer parts/service options, bringing less $ at trade/resale and costs more to operate? They wouldn’t sell! 30 yrs ago they became popular when the truck based mfg’s were using lighter components and inferior cabs. Today’s Pete’s are superior to ground up units. Many of the largest, most profitable dealers nationwide are running Stahly Peterbilts and adding more.
