    As displayed in post 2637 by Mr Prolog. Does the i.Log control system upgrade get an approval tick from the hauler operator? (Y/N)

    Yeah the I.log is a great upgrade all functions are quick as the original system and the options for changing settings like adjusting bias to suit deflection are all easy to alter from the in cab monitor. Highly recommended

    Does anyone know the cost of a new 124 to be built versus a new 172?

    Not cheap.The 172 is likely to be 3/4? of the cost of the 124. Volvo tier 4 engine in both the new 124 and 172. Volvo Truck diesel engines with emission equipment issues last year, been fixed?

    New Logchamps have Cat tier 4 engines. (ask t-mar for larger winch drums in a 650 to match a 124).
