We had a great time at this year's Mid-America Truck Show in Louisville, Kentucky. We had two Ottawa Yard Trucks on display. One yard truck was a tandem axle with a standard cab, and the other was a single axle with the new Skycab. This was well received for several reasons. When drivers enter and exit the cab they often have to duck in and out, depending on their height. With the new Skycab feature they can stand upright without their head touching the ceiling. This new feature will save the backs of spotters who are making dozens of switches a day. Chris Troutt said, "If you are 6 foot tall you may need to duck a little bit, but it is the perfect height for the average height spotter." The floor to ceiling height is 69 inches so it makes it much more comfortable for the drivers to come in and out of their cabs.

This year's Mid America Truck Show was a tremendous success. Our brand new and spacious cab was on display. This cab is known as "The Skycab" and once you see it it will become apparent how this name was applied to this design.

The Mid America Truck Show 2013 is shaping up to be spectacular this year. This is our 13th year in a row participating in the Truck Show! We will be manning the Kalmar/Ottawa booths with another dealer and also some OEM personnel.

We don't just carry the standard Cummins engine parts or only Ottawa yard truck parts. We have a full line of accessories and even carry batteries for your yard truck. You do not have to try and match up missing reflectors, dead batteries, or even the headlights. Schedule an appointment with our mobile repair service to change your oil or some other routine maintenance item and we will inspect your yard truck for missing accessories. We can be sure your switcher truck is up to snuff on reflectors and other safety items.

It had been several years since we launched our last website. We were due for a redesign and were looking for a platform we could update easily with new content. We also wanted to start communicating with our staff, customers and fans through a blog.
We were intrigued by the world of social media and how it can help develop better relationships with our suppliers, dealerships, customers and our community.
Well we’ll be putting these tools into practice in the coming months and year. Starting first with our website updates and blog.
