    Nice ride..Thumbs Up

    I almost bought the same truck, except with a box on the back. Truck stood just a little too tall for me (at the rear deck level)

    Does that have the re-burn system on it ?

    Is that a gas spreader?

    Truck is a DT466 Auto pre- b.s. emissions. No dpf filters and crazy computer systems!:) Sander is gas powered.

    That is a nice truck, exactly what I've been looking for..........Thumbs Up


    Just a word of caution: Be careful who you put into that truck to plow. The weight of that size truck can destroy that plow relatively easily. And YES, I know it's a "heavyweight" plow, but I could show you pics of a similar Western with less than 50 hours that's pretty bad from a few hits.............

    real nice setup is it a dump or fixed flatbed

    Its a fixed flatbed. This is going to be for a hardscape crew foreman. We are going to be mounting a fuel tank, tool boxes etc. We went with this size truck so we can pick up pallets of material if need be and since we tow a lot, we rather have something overkill then underkill. We were tired of the price tags of the new f550's, and even then at times, it wasn't enough truck. This makes our 4th international and we really like them. We keep buying pre-emission trucks that dont have all the fancy computers. We can actually work on these trucks when they break without needing a dealer and the motors are pretty much bullet proof.

    Is the thruck bed floor made of steel? If it is you may want to contemplate putting wood runners under the sander to keep it from sliding and to make it easier to wash out.

    I dont have a whole lot of pictures with the trucks all hooked up. We just outfitted our terrastar as well, so when I hook up the plow in a few weeks I will snap more pictures. Here are some pictures I do have....
