    GVW & Crane trucks

    UPDATE - Through great efforts, Elliot & Peterbilt were able to work together and get the truck re-classified @ 30,000lbs, which is exactly what we requested. Hats off to David Phillips and his team at Elliot for coming through and being able to deliver on the rig we wanted. I appreciate all the thoughtful responses and input from everyone, your opinions and diverse insight are valued. Have a great Christmas, or whatever you may be celebrating.

    GVW & Crane trucks

    They gave us a fine and we drove away. We have been hit three times in that crane and the next one is a threat of a 10K fine and banning the vehicle. We wound up taking off some of the tool boxes and emptying the remaining of all tools / service components etc. to get it to the correct weight. Make s a great apple picker truck now.

    GVW & Crane trucks

    Looking for input and I need to vent: On the brink of buying a new Elliot L60 on a Peterbilt and was just informed that the weight @ 1/3rd tank of gas and no driver is at 24,8000 Lbs. so it can be rated as non-CDL (25,999 lbs). We currently have one of our fleet cranes with a similar setup and our drivers get popped for being overweight all the time at weigh stations. With this in mind, we opted to have this new one classified as CDL required vehicle. We are now told that the truck is only rated for 26,0000 lbs. Why do they design trucks that cannot have a full tank of gas, a crew, a welder / generator set up and product loaded without being overweight? Am I missing something? I get that the manufacturers think everyone wants to be under for non-CDL drivers, but who puts an empty truck in the field?
  5. Love this - just shared with our Sales Staff.

    Keydin Sign Edition

    This is a relevant topic for us right now. We have been looking for a new global system and have been considering Cyrious http://www.cyrious.com/ however there isn't much of an accounting platform that works with QB or other programs. There also seems to be considerable redundancy in purchase order generation and close out docs. Currently we have the E2 system and it is an access base program that isn't too customizable for the right reports. We also use Excel for estimating and PM scheduling. I have worked with Casper at another company and wasn't too thrilled with it's overall capability. Many of the 'Sign Shop' systems I see look great for a vinyl shop or digital print house, but bring me concern when you get into the one-offs that we do in house. Most custom fab shops I speak with run a customized management program. I am curious to know what the rest of the world is doing these days?
