I'd be out, just cause its a Cat. I just don't wanna get into owning one, personally.

I asked the guy for the mileage on all five buses. Have you looked at these buses in person at all, or are they too far away?

Honestly by now aren't you shying away from the cat engine? It's reportedly just adequate while being expensive to maintain. There are better choices that you'll appreciate later if you let people here help you with what your decision about what you need. No body will push you to do anything, except following logic and safety.

Why not? Too high maintenance or?

I don't have Cat tools or much knowledge of their systems, or enough money to pay a Ring Power service center to work on one for me. They're just not as easy and universal as a Cummins or International. Much more limited and expensive when time to repair something.

Look at the 92's on GovDeals. In Ky. Mechanical engines and not from the rust belt.

And being almost 20yrs old isn't something to worry about?

Mines a 92. I'm not worried. Turned 24 yesterday.
Shes of legal drinking age. So is my bus.
