Didn't know they had or did such a thing. Thought they only did tires and oil changes. :idunno:

Wal-Mart owns a bunch of big rigs to move products around the country. This year (or last) they bought 300 Freightliner Cascadia (http://www.freightlinertrucks.com/trucks/find-by-model/cascadia/default.aspx)units.



From what I gather, they have their own fleet service/maint staff.

PS: I guess they ordered them last Aug. http://www.worktruckonline.com/News/Story/2008/06/Major-Retailer-Orders-300-Freightliner-Cascadia-Trucks-Equipped-With.aspx

I really do wish that someone would host a giant Repair-This-Sprinter-Engine, Repair-this-Sprinter-Heater, Repair-this-Sprinter-injector-hold-down-bolt (no new heads allowed), etc, etc technician competition.

I'd love to sell hot dogs at the arena.
