What percentage of Package Cars are Manual Trannys in your center?
We got a few old pos 800's and 1000's.

They tell us "Don't ask, don't tell"
Too many..stick shiftis fine....non power steering...doesnt cut itI
My shoulders and arms have been been hurting like hell. Got stuck in a p1000 with no power steering all peak. 260 some stops a day. Killer
Yep sounds about right. I keep waiting to see these new 800's everyone is talking about.
75% manuals. All have power steering though.
We have a few in our building. Haven't driven on yet but they look sweet. Better than the pos 700 I drive.
Don't know how they drive...but they suck to load....no cargo area...where the F does RDL and RDR go? Ohh.... down the middle...lol.
How many Trannys?
Are we counting management?
Back in the old days power steering was a dream. I had 2 shoulder, 2 elbow and 1 thumb surgery, Ergonomics.......I paid the price and those before me paved the way for what you have now..
Manuel the tranny?
I had a new 800 during Peak. Not so bad. Anything power trumps anything manual in my mind, especially since it's easier on my knees. My regular vehicle is a new 1000. More room in the cab, easier on the knees, and once you get a hang of the key FOB you do even notice it. Our Center has slowly been changing over for a few years now, and we're probably at 80% new vehicles.
I love all types of trannys.
It's about 40-50% manuals in my center. About 15-20% are non-power steering.
You really do work in the bubble of goodness.
