Nice looking truck

Thanks. The truck has been great. We have replaced the truck with a newer F550 so we can run a larger salter. If we don't sell the truck it will serve as a back up but with the low mileage I'm sure someone will be looking to pick up a barely broken in 7.3.

How much weight can the back end hold? Do you know why the plow rises slow?

It has a 3/4 yard dump bed and the salter is 1.5 yards. We're not sure why the plow riases slow. We never fully looked into it cause it still goes up and down. If you would like I can take a short video of it and send it over.

Probably the pump needs to be replaced to make the plow go up faster. Did mine last year was less than 2 hundred bucks. I am sure there is someone on plow site that can answer the question. 7.3 with 90k,, what a deal!.

It is a great deal. Im looking for something like this but with a bigger dump bed. Im needing a bed I can put 10 yrds of mulch in... Good luck with the sale!

We searched high and low for a regular cab F450 or F550 with L Pack and a grain body with 4 wheel drive to plow with. Very hard to find. Found several 2 wheel drive trucks but you are looking at around 23k for the truck with 60k miles.

Ya, tell me about it. Your truck is a great deal, I'm starting to kick around the idea. It is a little far from me but that has never detoured me before. Im just trying to get over the bed size.

Why cant you build the sides up the most I put in the same exact bed on my cummins was 2 yards of mulch and it looked like it would take another 2

I have 3ft tall wood sides but you can go higher than that I made it that tall to fit a cord of wood at most nothing more.

We have sides for the truck. Can't remember but its either 2-2x8's or 2-2x10's. The most mulch your going to fit into this truck is 5-6 yards. We have grain body trucks that we'll max out at 11-12 and this body is alot smaller. This truck pulled a trailer early but for the last 3 years has been solely used as an extra crew/pruning truck. Its ideal for the extra work guys cause they have all the tools they could need. Saves time everyday in the morning and at the end of the day when loading and breaking down the truck.

Is the oil pan rusted/pitted or leaking?

The oil pan is not leaking. It does have rust and some pitting. Its not the original oil pan. It has been replaced already. If you would like to take a look at the truck please let me know so we can set something up. Since we have owned the truck we have all records on repairs.

Been real busy cleaning up after the hurricane but want to move the truck before the winter. Any questions please let me know. Still a solid truck with low mileage.
