    Just pick this little gem up today. I'm very happy with it.

    I actually have another thread going in the heavy equipment section, but I figured I'd throw a few pics up here.

    The truck is:

    1993 International 4600 Low-Profile, 7.3 Diesel Non-Turbo IDI, 5 Speed

    Paid $7000 for it, has 292,000 miles but it runs like a top and is in excellent condition.

    You've got your counter weight in there, now all you need is a big ole plow for the front of it. Nice looking truck, good luck!

    I actually won't be putting a plow on it, just don't have the need for it.

    Lookin' good. Seems like a nice clean truck. At least being red it looks fast. :D Pow Wag and dump, I'm jealous of all the toys. Looks like you could haul at least 4 full cords in there if you put higher sideboards on it. Good Luck with it.

    I could probably fit 4 cords in there tightly, but I don't think the dump would pick it up. This is based on what the previous owner told me. He had loaded it over 3 yards with gravel, a yard being about 3000lb and it wouldn't pick it up so he had to do some shoveling.

    4 cords (at about 4000lbs a cord for hard wood) would probably be too much for it, and that would probably put it right at or over the GVW of 21,400 for this truck.

    We had probably 1.5 cords in it today and it picked it up no problem, I think 2 or 2.5 cords should not be problem, depending if it's not all hard wood. I plan on putting side boards on it at some point.

    You're reading my mind.....our plan this winter is to cut 20-30cords off out woodlot, we'll transport it tree length in the spring to my Fathers house with my Gooseneck where we'll process it.

    As a minimum I plan on having a fairly large wood splitter, maybe one that has a self loading arm and a small conveyor. It just so happens the guy I bought this truck from usually comes across used conveyors too, so I might be talking to him again.

    This truck mainly will be used for wood delivery to customers, and hauling light gravel to build up our existing roads on our woodlot.

    I'd love a firewood processor but don't want to spend the 12-14k minimum for a small processor right now. Plus what I would really want is a processor that goes on a skid steer, there is only one company that I know of that makes one right now, you can go over to a pile of logs, pick one up, go back over to your pile/truck, cut to length and split, takes literally all the handling out of the picture. But I think I'm dreaming, probably won't have one of those for a while, they are $24k plus the price of a skid steer.

    I have no doubt it will dump 8000-9000lbs easy. But stuffing 4 cords of hard wood in there is about 16k, I'm guessing not. I think I might be able to do 3 but we'll have to see. Right now I'm just speculating on what the previous owner told me about loading the truck.

    You mean this little guy? I've look at this at a Fair, nice unit, but you have to have the tractor at the location you are processing the wood, I think this limits you a little bit in the fact it's not completely self powered.

    a guy up the road had one of those processors, he ran it with his 18 hp kubota, and loaded it with his 60 hp kubota...... was a very nice processor for the $$

    That's the thing...if you want to run the processor you have to have one tractor (which I do), but then you need another one to bring logs to the processors and load onto the it.

    Guess I should just spring for that John Deere 55hp I've been eyeing for a year now :dizzy:
