    This truck has the 7.3 turbo diesel, belt driven hydraulics for a 9.5' fisher (not pictured), and a salt/sander for the dump box (also not pictured).

    The hydraulics operate the plow, dump box, and salter. Truck has 145000 miles but drives smooth and strong.

    Got this for $8500. I welcome your thoughts...

    That looks like a pretty good deal to me. The 7.3 engines are supposed to be the best.

    Paint the wheels white and you're set to go. What else is it gonna be used for?

    I am sure those are all the hoses for the central hydros.

    I think it needs a cab guard for the bed but otherwise looks good.

    Nice truck! I'm looking for a truck next season just like that. I want a 97 F350 or 450 flatbed dump for my liquid salt truck. I found one this year with very low miles but it was old first day in our local paper. It came with a Fisher plow in great shape and went for 9900.00.

    Those are the hydraulic lines hanging underneath. I'll have to tuck those away. Thanks for the comments.

    Thats a strong engine in that truck. The milage is nothing for it and the body looks to be in good shape. I like the belt hydros, a little slower than electric but very strong and dependable.
