I'm looking for another smaller mason type dump and came aross this one. It is a
1995 Dodge 3500 drw
Cummins Turbo Diesel-70k original miles.
Central hydraulics (ex DPW truck)
4 1/2 yard galion dump body
Pretty clean, some knicks and scrapes, not much. Little to no rust.
Automatic
Good tires

Asking 8500.00 What do you guys think? Good deal or not :waving:

Would it/does it bother you that it was plowing and salting and was a municiple truck? This is the second owner selling it now. It has been his personal work truck not doing anythbing much. What are the available gvws on thses trucks?

i didnt see about the plowing at salting part. I dont know about it then. I assumed the hydro was from the dump unit only. Are you mechanically inclined. Look at the frame real good. Look for rusting, and anywhere the has been a patch to the frame, or new welds. Have you looked at book value on this truck. Also look at auto trader and price similar vehicles in your area. Front end could be bad.

I would spend that for a 95 Dodge diesel if the body is decent, I picked up a 95 dodge in the fall it is a nice truck. Plow, salter, aluminum bed, 5spd with 65,000 miles on it 4x4. I wanted the truck so I paid 12500 for it maybe to high depends who you are.
