What grain hauling trucks are best on the farm for low cost repairs and quality build?

Just wonder what you all have for opinions on grain trucks (18 wheelers). Brands, nitpicks, specific things that speak to the quality good/bad of truck makes/models. We’re looking to upgrade a truck and not sure where to put our money. Not looking for new, probably something 2010-2016ish

Kenworth has more heavy haul trucks than most brands. They have done good for us. 13 speed alot nicer for hauling than 10 speed.
