Photos of the new trucks are showing up on the internet. Multiple color options on the tractors. Only white for the dump and mixer so far.

They look really nice. Time will tell. Delivery says Fall 2018.

So where is the link? Is "Bob" behind the wheel? If the price point is $125.00 or so, Chuck has nothing to worry about. It's nice to get a new truck, especially an International. We need to see it. Thanks, CAW

They are on another dealer site. I did not think it was appropriate to post it here.

Don't you think Chuck will be selling them? If you are talking about Roy's site or #####, those pictures are the same ones we saw earlier this year. The prototype pictures don't reveal all that much. I want to see the finished product. It may be great looking, but it won't be a Sword truck. CAW

According to my sources, there will be two and three axle tractors in five different colors (10 options). Dump truck and Mixer with white or off-white cabs. Three colors of tractor / trailer combos with both one and two axle boosters. Plus two or three combos that include a Cat load. None of the photos currently in circulation show the finished product. Photos of the real deal are supposed to be available by the end of July. I'm sure DHS will have them all.

The photos of the trucks and the color combinations have been on the web for a couple weeks. See below.

Goes without saying but one of those and the Sword East dump trailer would make an excellent combo.

I will say they look great. And we always need a new truck. But at $50 to $55.00 they must have a lot of plastic. Let's hope they are not like the Tonkin CAT CT680 or First Gear. I know I'm being negative already about these trucks, but after Smith, then after Sword, there is an awfully high bar that has been set. I could be wrong. I was once before!!!!!! CAW

I will say that they will look like the CT680 from Norscot in term of quality. As DM purchase Norscot moulds they will for sure have some shared tooling from the Cat like the real trucks had. And yes they will be plastic to keep them at this price. Except the steering wheel I don't expecy a lot of moving parts neither. But they look nice and I will buy some of them for sure.

If they are going to be the quality of a Cat CT680 then one of the manufacturers (Chuck) should make a quality heavy duty wrecker and then we can make some nice roll over dioramas with the Internationals.
