    1998 ford louisville dump truck w/ plow

    -i am the second owner this truck of which it originally came from a municipality a little over a year ago. I used it to plow a few of my lots and to haul some dirt. It is just too big of a truck to plow my smaller lots. I just use a skid steer now and this beautiful truck is hardly even used.

    -14 ft hilbilt steel box that is in great condition-a few tiny dings inside the bed but overall in excellent condition- the lift cylinder is in excellent shape w/ no leaks

    -33k miles/4100 hours (all original) on a cat 3126 turbo motor w/ allison 6 speed automatic-very smooth engine, shifts flawlessly, and starts in any temperature including todays -5f morning temp with intake heater

    -11 ft flink heavy duty trip edge plow that is nearly new-this plow operates fast and does not feel like a 2000# plow-the plow is very easy to mount/dismount as it only take a few minutes with a quick-attach lever-it is a 4-way hydraulic plow

    -heated mirrors

    -all rear led lights including flashers (beacon lights)

    -all lights work including top strobe light

    -front tires are basically new and the rears are virgin at about 70%

    -spring front axle is 16k and spring rear tandem is 40k

    -rear axle lock

    -air brakes w/ lots of life

    -very tight turning radius

    -double frame

    -rear pintle hitch

    -central hydraulics w/couplers at rear of truck for spreader w/ spreader controls in cab (no spreader)

    -drivers side air ride seat and standard passenger seat-both seats are original and have no tears

    -new heater blower motor

    -new batteries

    -cruise control

    -air horn and regular horn

    -the paint is in great condition with a few small dings on the hood (original factory orange) and the bed was painted last year and still is in great shape

    -this is a true commercial plow truck specifically made for heavy road use
