    Default Two "Bucks", within 30 days

    Hi Everyone!

    I have looked at this forum for a while now looking for information on 5 ton trucks and finally purchased a 1988 929A1 dump truck to use as an off-road truck in our excavation business. Lots of good info on this site, so I wanted to become a member. Thanks to all of you for sharing all the info. I love this truck! First time ever being in (or around) a 5 ton, and I am amazed at the brute strength and "no frills" build of this vehicle. Its a work horse!

    I have never been a member of any forum, so it may take me a while to learn the ropes. Thanks for all the stickies and "how to navigate" threads, they are already helping. I also noticed there was another new member by the name of "BuckT" within 30 days of me registering...what are the odds of this forum attracting two Bucks that quickly? Is there some Doe in heat scent floating around here??

    Thanks again and look forward to learning from you all!

    Buck

    Thanks for the warm welcome! Yes, definitely worth more than 2 bucks... maybe a few more will come on board
