    2009 INT Sander

    The truck was around $70000 plus the box and stainless tenco 6 yd sander. The sander was about $14000 CDN. Everything all in was about $90,000. I love driving it. The visibility is amazing and it can turn sharper than my pickup. 6 speed allison automatic and good for about 10 ton payload. We ran almost 1000 tons through it last season. I am sure the same truck in the US would be $10,000 to $20,000 less

    No plow on that beast?

    Not yet. Too hard on the front end. This truck usually runs about 6 -8 hrs just sanding behind the crew.

    Nice setup! I'm curious as to why you went with "landscaper" low sides/fold down, considering the payload capacity of that unit.

    Looks good, I would love to have something like that. Just my opinion but the back end of the spreader witht he lights and such looks a little "thrown together". Not sure if you were just working on it or what but all in all very nice rig.

    Good luck this winter

    The landscaper sides allow us to clean out the salt sand build up in the front a lot better. As for payload we only use it occasionaly for topsoil or aggregate in the summer if we have some customers who want a small load in a tight area. 90 percent of the time we use our triaxle dumps to haul. They are legal for 21 - 23 metric tonne.

    Vary nice truck and fleet!

    Ever thought about taking the body off and just mounting the salter on the frame? I'd be saving that body for summer work instead of having it rot out from the salt....

    Great looking truck. I've just recently been kicking around looking for a replacement for our 93 4700. Is this 4300 under 26000 GVW? What engine, 466E?

    I think it has 230 or 250 hp, not sure which engine 466 sounds familiar. GVW is 33,000

    It has the allison automatica as well.

    We had a topkick previous and we had the sander just on the fram and we found at the front of the sander belt the sand would get all into the frame, driveshaft, and exhaust. With the landscaper box we just fold down the sides once in a while and clean out the sand and salt.

    Not to mention taking these boxes on & off isn't realistic. I would imagine the box is full welded to the frame at the hinges & the scissor lift.

    I highly doubt that!

    Kcress - good point, guess it all depends on the salter you have...

    Kind of hard to dump a box that is welded to the frame. Remove the hoist pin and the hinge pins and the back at pick it off. Not really that hard.
