What do you think about a f550 dump desial.

I'm looking for a dump truck.I came across a 550 desial dump. It is a regular cab with 58,000 miles. It has a landscape body. I can get it for 20 thousand out the door. Its from a dealer. It is a 2008. I been looking for some time and this truck seems like a good deal. Please let me know if you have any experience with this truck. P.s. it has a 12 foot bed. All metal.

It's spelled diesel. Not sure what a "desial" is. And I'd walk. A) you don't know the difference between a Cummins and Powerstroke. And B) 20k for 2008 58.xxx mile 6.4??? Oo. There's a saying "if it's to good to be true. It probably is".

check the GVW on the truck , if you intend to tow a trailer and the gvw of the 550 plus the gvw of your trailer add up to over 26001 , you are in cdl territory . The GVW id the gross vehicle weight . What I could find is they are artound 17,000 lbs , you could pull a dual 5 lug trailer , but not a dual 6 lug trailer

Well flatbed dump of that size would be about $8k-$9k new so really the truck is $12,000. :-)
