09-29-2008, 09:58 PM
Peterbilt 330 with a 14í Heil landscape/mason dump. Caterpillar 230 HP with an Eaton Roadranger 6-spd. Model year 2003, bought new by me in July, 04. Driven carefully by one granddad owner-operator. Air brakes, air pto, air locking rear end, air horn, air conditioned and air driverís seat (the best). Deluxe interior. AM/FM/Weatherband radio. Garaged every night and all winter. Only driven in the yard in winter months, never on road. Iíll include a custom knockdown plywood leaf box that extends the sides 4í to carry 20 yards of chopped leaves. Optional 16 HP Giant Vac leaf machine fits on hitch and works great.
Condition: Excellent. One stone blemish on front fender. Composite tilt hood, classic aluminum Pete cab. Waxed with Meguiarís Classic. Dump floor still has some paint, but no dents. Bridgestone 295/75/22.5 tires. Heavy frame & brakes, etc. All original keys, documents,manuals, CD, etc.

Capabilities: One man can flop the sides and tailgate down to provide a flatbed 4.5 feet off the ground. Easy loading by forklift, small machines or hand. Carries 3 pallets of pavers end-to-end plus sand and tools. Extend the sides 2í higher with some 2x12 lumber, and it hauls 15+ yards of mulch. Can tow full-size backhoe, but Iíve never pulled anything over 10,000 lbs. It does not require a CDL in most states, including mine.

Extras: Huge Weatherguard box 36x30x24 ($500), Holland 15-ton pintle hitch (never used), 2x2 receiver hitch plus custom extended receiver hitch, digital electric trailer brake controller, Cobra 29 Ltd. Dale Earnhardt CB, Peterbilt slush mats, DOT warning triangles, chock blocks, etc. The rear pintle plate is ĹĒ thick and drilled top to bottom so that hitches can be relocated up and down.

Price: $47,000. Current replacement cost is over $70K, and they come with the new nightmare emission exhaust system.

I have lots more photos if I can get them to post. Please PM with specific questions. Thanks for looking.

Very nice truck! I'm guessing its a 26000 GVW since its under CDL??

09-29-2008, 10:41 PM
Thanks. Yes, it's rated at 26,000, although the front springs are 10,000 and the rears are 20,000 lbs. Peterbilt doesn't make many of them.

Nice truck, can you take a few pics of the cab?

10-01-2008, 10:16 AM
Thanks, guys. It's a great truck. I wish we had more work for it. BlackCloud - I'll try to get some pix of the cab. It's typical Peterbilt, grey cloth seats, wood-grain dash, etc. MAC LLC - where are you from? Would I know you?

did truck come from dealer as a dump truck , what condition is interior, what state is truck located .

11-25-2008, 11:40 AM
How much does the truck weigh empty? I am guessing 17000 lbs........

11-30-2008, 08:47 PM
Thanks for the questions, guys. Yes, the truck came from the dealer as a dump truck. Peterbilt and Heil equipment had a package program. (Many garbage trucks are Pete cabovers with Heil bodies, so they do a lot of business.) The truck weighs about 13,700 empty, depending on the fuel load. It's in Western Mass. near Interstate 90 and 91. It just passed the state and federal inspections with flying colors. PM me if you want any of the specs or details, or if you are interested in purchasing it.

Any other questions?

Nice truck, how did you get Wisconsin mud flaps? Good luck on selling it.

12-02-2008, 10:38 AM
I actually bought it from Wisconsin Peterbilt in Waukesha and drove it home. That accounts for about 1000 miles. I guess I'll need some luck selling it in this economy. But it's a great truck for less money than a diesel F450 or 4500 dump, and it will outlast several of them. And outwork them, too. And in most states you can drive it with a regular passenger license and a med card.

Was going to ask if that Kobelco is yours in the one picture? (needed a bump):)

12-29-2008, 01:00 PM
Bump. Still for sale. Just in time to spend some of that 2008 profit and keep it from the tax man.
Earlier question - the Kobelco excavator belongs to another contractor. We rent shop space from them.
