    A few pictures of this super clean dump truck I picked up this weekend at an auction

    2000 6500
    Cat Motor
    29,400 miles
    New tires
    10' Western in average condition
    Tailgate spreader
    Came right from the Township, even had the chance to talk to the supervisor for a half hour before the bidding started

    I was going to buy a new New Holland skid-steer, but came home with an empty trailer and this instead

    The International aside of it with stainless tailgate spreader, 11' one way, with about 60,000 miles sold for $2500

    Small auction in rural PA - it was at a farmers Market

    The local township took their trucks there

    You need to watch auctionzip.com every week for this stuff, you just type in keywords like "dump truck" or "loader", or whatever you want to buy, and they come up based on your zip code and radius criteria

    My limit was 10,000 but I know its worth way more than that, so I couldn't let the other 1 bidder have it

    The township reserve was only 8,000

    Make sure to change the oil on the salt spreader gear box.

    Nice score man. How can you get into bid on one of these auctions? Bet I could buy a nice enclosed trailer there for cheap.
