COLUMBUS, Ind. — In the Class 8 market, weak orders persisted through June, while activity in the Classes 5-7 markets remained generally unchanged, according to ACT Research’s “State of the Industry” report.

Vieth said that Classes 5-7 orders in June remained consistent, but noted, “there is very little backlog cushion if orders slow from current levels.”
