The concept of a no-maintenance, heavy-duty, diesel tractor presented in this paper is based on the concept of component life expectancy. Design and engineering improvements of tractor systems and components are recommended for the development of a 500,000-mile, no-maintenance chassis. Such a chassis, together with electronic, computerized maintenance systems working on an on-demand basis, can be expected to generate savings averaging $1448/tractor/year.
