    Found this old girl, main use would be to haul snow in the winter, haul topsoil and rock in summer..

    Im interested because of hydraulic brakes so most employees can operate.
    Anything to look out for, opinions etc?

    Floorboards, rocker panels, cab mounts and pinch weld on firewall need looked at closely. Very prone to rust and tell condition pretty quick. 444 its the 7.3 Power Stroke. With the last 8 of the serial number a line set ticket (build sheet) can be gotten on how truck was built.
    Decent power to me means decent EMPTY! If this thing will run 65+ mph then more than likely it'll have no bottom end to speak of. If geared 62mph and under it may be ok.
