Old school maple flooring? Go for it! The stuff is beautiful and wears like iron. It also goes in the old school way; no tongue and groove stuff, etc. You'll probably want to strip it before you...

If you have inside connections at CAT, why not take advantage? It's too bad they left the on-the-road market. Most don't like the CATs...

The DT466 should go in a TC 2000, but it...
