Chris S General We don't get these on the system 'up nawth', William; do the CATs sound anything like an EMD? 8/23/2013 7:34:40 PM
William H. Davis Jr. General Yes, the PR43C sounds something like an EMD, a little more like the non turbo charged 567 engine, if you've ever heard a bulldozer that's what they sound like 8/23/2013 8:15:24 PM
