    I thought this was pretty cool. Came in today for oil change service. It has a dump bed and hydraulic salter that's removable.

    Holden has some nice equipment all nice late model stuff. Worcester also upgraded some of there stuff too. I'd like to see some towns try those undertailgate spreaders like Penndot, they look like they'd be the balls

    So that truck is dedicated strictly for salting and plowing, or does the entire dump body come off in spring?

    The dump body stays on but the spreader attachment in rear is detachable, just unplug two hydraulic lines and remove. The wing and front plow are removeable as one unit also. And then the truck is fully functional as a dump in summer.

    taxes are high in holden.

    This is what happens when office workers buy trucks.

    What brand of plow is that? I see them all over Mass and NH, but I never catch a name.

    It's a Everest plow set-up and I'm willing to bet that truck was upfitted at HP Fairfield in Worcester

    Most wing plows allow you to see out the passenger side windows, then again, they are normally on Internationals. CRAZY... Can you say blind spot

    Is there a cover for the conveyor in the summer? I would think that dirt/rock would flow right thru.

    I don't know if there is but from what it looked like there's no open slats for it to fall through. As long as the conveyor wasn't on, dirt should stay put.

    Yes. You were concerned about the soot on the tailpipes. We had to contact Ford directly to get authorization for replacement. They said in training that no soot should show on the pipes at all. If it does its a cracked dpf as you found out. Just be glad you didn't have to pay for that.!!

    Ohh. Did you put in a dpf delete kit? Because the cracked one went back to Ford.

    yes i did delete it. i noticed the cracked dpf when i bought the truck but i didn't care because i was going to delete it anyway. But i had to return it to stock to get it inspected and figured i would get it fixed before the warranty was gone. This truck has been tuned for about 9k miles. I had a blue 08 with the 6.4 which i had tuned. they run so much better, oil is cleaner. The truck has a 4" downpipe back with a mbrp muffler, H&S mini maxx tuning and a S&B intake. what have you done to your truck?
